Glassing plank joins and a bit of bogging.

Scalloped butt joins, filled joint and then 3 layers of glass covered in peel ply. It is somewhat common for unglassed joints to crack over time thus exposing the end grain. Hopefully three layers of 200gm glass will cure this. Also did as much general filling of hull. A few more days work yet before painting. I also spent a bit of time yesterday using a syringe of raw epoxy to fill any pin hole gaps in the planks.

Scalloped wood and also added filler (not shown). 

Easier to wet out 3 layers of glass on plastic and cut into strips

Peel ply on

A syringe of raw epoxy used to get into joins works well.
