Preparing for float lamination

Here is a good use of toothpicks. While the glue is hardening these toothpicks do a good job of holding the deck edge foam strip down and in place snug with the mold plate.

The inside surface of this 3rd float half has now been sanded smooth. I've used a long board this time to make sure the foam planks are pretty fair with no obvious places for air pockets to form. The long board (30" by 4.5") was put together with some scrap 1/4" thick starboard polymer sheet I had available. I use an adhesive spray to attach the sandpaper.
