Glassed the bottom of both the sheer shelves and got the starboard side all glued on as well as the fillet under the shelf to side fillet. It took 4 1/4 full sheets of ply for the sides. The port sides will be glued on tomorrow then I'll start taping all the outside seams, chine to sides, sides to transom. Hard to see but approximately 8 1/2 feet forward of the stern my sides extend past the sheer shelves 4" creating a Bulwark

Interesting approach to the bulwark. I have just started thinking about how I am going to do mine, playing around with some scraps of 1/2" to see if I can bend them that sharp. Either way, looking good! That thing is going to be a beast!

Because the Kodiak sides are taller than the standard GA sides the only way to get the extra 4" height for the bulwark was to scarf the front 2 side panels up at an angle as shown in the attached. Otherwise I would have to scarf 2- 4x8 sheets together then scarf or rabbit on another 4"+ the full 16 foot length to make a 52" wide panels.

Oh right, I forgot how close those sides where to the shelves when I cut them (it's been a minute)... Clever solution, definitely better than scarfing 16' to get another 4"...

I stapled on 4x8 cardboard cover sheets on the entire side. Then I marked the inside cine, bow and shelf locations to figure it all out and make templates.

Wow ... nice job on the bulwark concept!  Looks awesome too!  Can't wait to go fishin' in that beast!  :D

Got the port front side on today as well as the 33 feet of peanut butter chine to side fill all done. Also started working on fairing the bottom to sides at the bow. Shouldn't take to much it actually came out pretty good!! Coming in to Saturday to sand all the PB and a little more work on the bow area. gona try to get the 30oz of cloth on the chine/side joints also. Still shooting for an October flip.
