Continueing the glass work

After taking most of the week off from boat building, today I sanded the edges of the fiberglass we laid last Sunday and covered the transom with glass. I also laid some more glass on the bow, and picked up some mahogany planks to use for thwarts. In the center of the close up photo you can see a small black spot. This spot is a love bug, a local insect that hatches out and mates in mid spring and early fall. They are attracted to gasoline fumes, uncured polyester resin (discovered that fact a few years when I restored an old fiberglass skiff) and apparently to uncured epoxy. I will sand them out after the epoxy cures for a few days.
