Well,

I've got good news and bad news. Good news is: I have to have the hull on by December.

Bad News:
I lost the directions and had to buy a whole new set...
Also, I am PCS-ing to Germany where they will not take my boat. Soooo, it will have a 4 year break sitting in storage.

I feel like the chine logs are a bit thin at 3/4" so I doubled up them on the inside. I also put the 1st sheet of the hull on.

I had to order more fasteners and more encapsulating epoxy before I can put more of the hull on. tomorrow, I will try to finish fairing everything to get it to the. point where I can put the rest of the hull on quickly.

Ran out of epoxy. I'll have to wait til Glen L ships the pay grip.

One piece left! Dumb question. I have poxy shield. Do I need to put a layer on before the cloth? Do I need to thicken the poxy shield for clothing it?

THere are schools for either method. I chose not to put down epoxy before putting on cloth and everything worked fine. Others will say you could get epoxy starved cloth if you do not.
