Very exciting progress today 😊
We have epoxied in the plywood backing plates for the aft cabin. Full length of the cabin on both sides.
The challenge now is to time removing the bolts soon enough so that they don’t get stuck yet leaving them long enough that the backing plates won’t sag. I think I’ll put some temporary props up.
We have managed to get the thickened epoxy to ooze slightly from all the edges so are pretty confident that there is going to be a void free bond.
We have a similar job to do in the lazarette and in the saloon. Then I think we can be pretty confident that there are not going to be any more stress cracks in the deck from the chainplates. 😁
