Ulua progress: off the molds!

Finally completed the 3 coats of epoxy on the outside of the hull, and sanded off the drips (and most of the epoxy).  The interior does not look as bad as it might.  The hull was amazingly light to pick up, maybe only 20 – 30 lbs without deck, gunwhales, and other fittings.  Upright, the impression of depth and freeboard is much greater, and it is clear that the fancy tapering of the planks will be invisible when she is in the water.
