Then you add ZAP-a-gap glue to the front part of the tub-sides and the front bulkheads (use more glue in the front part) and roll-press it down more and more to the front until the glue starts to set... Have the CA kicker nearby if you need it to get the glue to kick but don't use too much of it at this stage. If you have a friend close by that can assist it's even better! :) Let it sit for a few minutes and remove the aluminum angles.
Ps, it's a good advice to also use a fan to blow away the CA fumes while gluing!
Use a small model-plane tool to remove most of the protruding bottom sheeting - finish it with the std 1 foot long bar-sander with 80 grit paper.
Here is some sanding tips: you know it's easy to sand too much and sand through the outer ply layer of any plywood sheeting right? Three major reasons for that to happen according to me. 1 - You don't pay attention and aren't looking to what you are actually doing... 2 - You use a bad sanding block that is not flat and too fine graded sanding paper (The worst sanding block you could ever use is the old cork-block that you just fold the sand paper over the edges! And if you use too fine of a sanding paper you need to sand more on each part and push harder = more of a chance that you sand to much or tilt the sanding block too much etc)... 3 - You sand too much, too far, too early... On a boat like this you have plenty of protruding plywood parts that need to be sanded down that "work" on the same "surface" so to speak. The trick is to sand just enough each time and when all the gluing is done do a final sanding where you can sand everything together. As an example - wait for the final sanding of the tub-sides until the deck, bottom, nose-block and carbon transom doubler is glued in place and sanded almost smooth. Then you can sand it smooth/flat. The "perfect sanding" is not done until the complete boat is done though and you start preparing for the epoxy sealing process. Get it? :)
Done for now - Have a nice weekend! :)
