Cold Temperature Epoxy

The trouble with winter boat building is it gets cold at night, just as we are ready to glue!

My solution is some bent water pipe, a sheet of polythene and some tube heaters (not to mention every cramp in the workshop).
Here the cockpit surround, or at least the base of it (formed by 32 strips of ash) is finally shaped to the compound curves of the kayak deck. The hatch frame is also complete.
