Now all the pieces are with us, it’s time to give the boat a dry fit before we can think about glassing in bulkheads, or bonding the components together.

One of the biggest issues is the side hull, which is resting with its flange underneath the hull. Once we can get that up and over, we can bolt the two together. But working with pieces over our heads which weigh 300 pounds? (150kg) We have to come up with lots of interesting ways to manage doing that with just the two of us.
We also go through the effort to make sure the hulls are properly aligned, which means moving the port side hull forward *just a touch*. Once have made the measurements (in metric) that everything is where it is supposed to be, we use a water level to make sure both hulls are level with each other.
We hope you enjoy!
Much love from Annapolis!
