Yeah, we had talked about this face to face and I do see it in the WSM: I do see that in your manual although mine is on page D-2, what I'm interested in is, is it butt jointed and sealed with a mish mass or is there an interior scarf joint?

When I cleaned away all the old lifting gel, there were some 1/4" voids running a foot or more along that joint. I'll fill and epoxy glass over them and fair them.

So I'm wondering how each piece was mad to fit together.

Thanks Bud, Appreciate your time.

This third piece of the mold is center bonded the same as the centerline of the two halves of the hull. It was done this way so that the laminators could reach this joint to do a proper centerline bond.
