Second float (port side outer half): bedding the bow stringer

The important bow foam stringer has now been bedded with epoxy putty (>50% cabosil) into place. This float half will be on the port side and will be the outer half, so there is no side stay chain plate assembly to make for this one.

One advantage of having the forward beam bulkhead complete is that it can be used to locate the stringer at one end. I'm using left over patio bricks to hold the foam down .

The foam stringer should be ready for final laminations in a few days.
