Building Seamaster Day 14: Float Sides & Fuse Side Joints

On April 7th I worked on the floats… sanding of them already took place and so I verified and then glued the sides to the support pieces.  You can see the system rigged up below to keep pieces in place along with clamps on the glue joints while the glue dried.

The other thing I did this day was glue pieces of wood the width of the teeth joint (connecting the two pieces of the sides of the fuselage together) to the inside of the fuselage to cover the seam and provide reinforcements for the joint.  This can be seen below.
