I had an issue with the resin drying. The weather has been cold here and it just would not go off. Yesterday it went up to 65 degrees and the resin kicked. For good measure I skimmed the bottom with a hot coat of resin. But that's done so here we are. Had another fumble too. Just the other day I cut up and trashed the excess wood that the molds were cut out of. With hindsight I should have kept two of the female molds to make a cradle to hold the boat upright. live and learn. She does look good.
