Test fitting of starboard side float halves

I could hardly wait to test fit the two halves together. There was some odd twist in the half stored outside over the winter but I have found with a few clamps, the edges for joining line up pretty well. This weekend I will clean up these edges and join (first putty then tape) along the keel and bulkhead areas.

The outer side foam hull surfaces have not been sanded fair yet and I am eager to get to it.

However, it will not be too long before I am laminating the outer hulls. So, I have purchased a small quantity of Aeropoxy light for filling the screw holes and any low spots that sanding the foam will not remove.

I'm also thinking about the final float half and the deck laminations.
