Cutting the dinghy

After a bit more epoxying and sanding I was ready to cut the boat in half. You can imagine this is very unnatural thing to do. When building the center bulkhead I inserted cardboard in between the plywood pieces which make up the double bulkhead. This leaves room for the saw cut. It is done with a handsaw so you can ‘feel’ your way in between the bulkheads. I got a little off half way through and started from the other side to meet in the middle. Now I had two boats!
The next step was to sand and clean up that cut and tape and epoxy the new outside corners. Pics will be coming soon.
