Trabajar en el barco - actualización

Working on the boat - an update. This is what the boat looked like 4 weeks ago:

Two layers of marine plywood now cover the damaged area and Dick is grinding down the surface. Note the open leg on Dick's protective covering. He's larger than most Mexican men and the largest-size available is not quite big enough:

Applying kevlar tape to the joints to add strength:

Rolling on epoxy:

Applying fairing compound mixed with silica:

Applying fairing compound mixed with phenolic micro-balloons:

The white part is the third layer of fairing compound, this one is mixed with glass bubbles:

And so, the work continues as we long to be in the water, and then to sail away.
