Coming along nicely! However, when it comes to fairing the joints, I think you are at risk of missing some low spots with that distracting background ;-) :lol:

Hull planking, 1/4" by 6" wide Mahogany

The lower boards are not glued down in this pic.
The white residue you see above the boards is scrapings/shavings that came from cleaning the squeeze out of epoxy that had adhesive filler mixed in which makes the epoxy look white.

I'm going to guess by the weatherstripping looking white stuff around the sheers that you vacuum pressed the mahogany to the ply? Do you have any pictures or details of that?
