I washed the hull in methylated spirits which draws out any rot inducing moisture and helps get the hull down its minimum weight.
Repairing the holes by laminating on layers of 1.5mm Gaboon plywood in strips.
The first stage of the fairing process. I have used a belt sander (on the first stage of reducing the height of the laminated repairs) and a manual long board sander. I must say, having all the holes in the hull closed off and the timber faired up feels like a bit of a milestone.
