Power sanding

Firstly I had to check on my stem laminate. To my surprise there was almost no springback (because of many layers????)

After releasing the clamps

Testing the fit on the hull, far from perfect but I think I can get it in place with some planing and a few screws

Then it was time for sanding again, today I used my random orbital sander. Noisy and a lot of vibration (my hands have not stopped shaking yet). My neighbors must be really patient, no complaints after a few hours of sanding on a Friday night (maybe they are not at home?).

I also added some fairing compound to a few low spots. Hand sanding tomorrow and hopefully glassing the bottom.

Time today: 2.5h
