First half of the upper cockpit coaming glued.

I was able to get the first half of the upper cockpit coaming glued up. It will have to cure for at least 24 hours before I can move on to the other half. Then I’ll sand it all smooth and round over the edges, etc. After the cockpit coaming is done I will start doing the inside of the shear seams. The way my schedule is going, that will most likely be next weekend as I haven’t really had time to work on the kayak after work during the week.

Lot’s of clamps make for better glue-ups. Also, just for the sake of saying so, since it had been way over 72 hours since I had fiberglassed and epoxied the upper coaming pieces, they were lightly sanded so that the epoxy will bond well.
I couldn’t get one more clamp on this coaming if I tried! By the way, you can buy these clamps on Amazon in a 24 pack for not too much money and when you’re done building whatever you’re building, you will never have to worry about having too few clamps ever again!
