Glassing the outside keel joint

After letting the inside keel dry for a couple of days the hulls were turned around. The outside keel joint is sharp so it has to be trimmed with a plane and sanding paper. Also some packing tape needs to be applied to prevent the epox from spreading on the hull sides while glassing. The picture below shows the prepared hulls.

The 5 cm glass tape is then wetted and placed on top of the keel joint.
