Looks real nice Michael. Using alcohol on the epoxy is fine if you let it cure sufficiently. It can make a mess of things if you don't. I'e never had any issues doing this after 24 hours. IN cold weather it might be a bit longer, but once cured, the epoxy can take wipe downs just fine. Looking forward to starting to see the zip come together. I know it's been a long road for you getting to this point. It'll be another nice feather in your cap when finished though.

Slowly transitioning into the next phase of the build.

Frames 2, 4 and 5-1/2 are all screwed to the construction form. I was very pleased with the centerline alignment of the stem. You can't really tell from the photo, but it was dead-on. Soon I'll epoxy it into place. Currently prepping the inside of the transom for partial encapsulation & primer coat. In the photo, you can also see my 3/4 laminated keel laying in the floor & awaiting placement.

As a wise man once said,

Making good progress.

Really nice work so far Mike. The extra effort on the frames is showing.
