    Lamination is Done ! The 1-1/2 oz strip I used was for a skin layer for the mold and then worked my way up the ladder of heavier fabrics.

    Lamination Results Next step is to build a big work table, rebuild transom, and prepare for stringers.
    Thank you for following and liking my project

    Project update
    1. Finished the big table
    2. Ordered the necessary wood to build the transom and stringers
    3. Began to sandwich the two layers of 1-inch marine plywood for transom

    Did you make more or less deadrise?
    Looks like the original transom is glassed back in, wouldn’t that dictate that the deadrise remain the same?
    I noticed that no bracing was installed across the gunnels, which would allow the sides to sag, and the bottom to warp, possibly pulling some rocker into the keel line after the transom was removed.
    Is this what you are trying to achieve?

    Longitudinal Stringers are measured and cut

    I wanted the 17-degree deadrise and for the hull bottom I screwed the keel to a planned beam forward of the temporary mold

    Cut the Transom, Sun dried for a week and soaked the lumber in isophthalic resin and then laminated 1-1/2 on all surfaces. Also so sandwiched the transom together.

    The elementor, a master of all four elements! Earth, wind, fire, water!
    You can burn it!
    You can throw it out of a plane!
    You can bury it in the ground!
    It even sinks in water!

    I'm sorry haha, I can't resist a stupid joke :) Your project looks awesome!

    Don't apologize! Having a sense of humor is always a good thing. the elementor was a name off the top of my head because of how much chopping and rebuilding was to occur. I think you explained it very well !
