Ok, the party's over now it's time.....

to get back to work!

Seeing as we didn't actually lay the keel on Saturday, today was the day the first bottom panel went up.

It's actually two pieces because I knew it'd be too big for one person to handle. As it was it was a bit of a struggle to get it up and keep it from sliding off.

Being two parts I had to line them up as best I could then tape and glue them together. Robert came over and gave me the idea to use some C-clamps and ratchet clamps to pull the sheets together. He's a smart ole' fella.

There's not going to be much I can do till this part sets up then it's onto the other side which will be a bit trickier to get glued & taped.

That's 'bout it. Time for a power nap! :-)
