Had to take apart what I had done because I couldn't get the sides fair with the assembly up on the platform. I ended up attaching risers to the bulkheads and setting those risers on the garage floor so the hull rocker shape could form unubstructed. hopefully I will be able to tab the hull bottom on today. I only have a few more days of home time before I go on the road for 4 weeks

Got the hull bottom welded to the hull sides but ran out of time to go any further. Will be on the road for the next 4 weeks before I am able to get back on the CK17

It's not possible to tell for sure from the photo, but it looks like you applied the peanut butter mixture directly to dry plywood. When you're gluing two pieces of ply together (and this goes double for edges) you need to apply a straight coat of epoxy to the wood first, then follow with the thickened epoxy mixture. The plywood will suck the epoxy into the fibers, so when you apply the thickened mix it will retain its strength. You may have done that, hard to tell.

You seem to be working neatly, which will save you trouble smoothing surfaces later. Nice to see another CK17 build!
