I wasn't very productive today, but I did get some sanding done. After I got that done, I primed the rudder.
I also mixed up some epoxy and glued on some cleats in the very rear well between B7 & B8. I had to plane them down a bit to get them to fit, but they will be very nice to hold up the sole when it goes on.
I also used that epoxy to glue on some doublers on the battery well hatch. I didn't get a picture of that.

I also picked up a couple of electrical items today. I needed a bit of extra red #6 wire. Be sure to use marine wire if you do electrical. It is copper wire, but it has been tinned for extra corrosion resistance.
I started to crimp up my wiring today.
Tomorrow, I should be able to paint in the wells and the front enclosed cabin. I think I should be able to do a 3rd coat on the foot well and the rear wells also. Then next week I might find the time to prime those wells.
I think I'll have to mix up some fairing putty also to smooth out the ovals and a few areas in the veranda.
