Installing Trim

Finished painting the sheer planks last weekend, pulled the blue tape yesterday, re-taped this morning and set up the jig-sticks to install the trim along the bottom edge of the sheer planks.

Applied neat epoxy to the trim pieces and the bare bottom of the sheer planks, slathered thickened epoxy to the trim pieces and, with Jan and Andy assisting, clamped the trim to the planks. After some fiddling with the clamps we were done.

I followed the epoxy & clamp process with counter-sunk screws. And, there will be a bit of fine-tuning the fit right at the stem when the trim pieces between the rub-rails and today's trim pieces are installed.
