The stitched up hull was then tacked with epoxy putty along all the seams and bulkhead edges.  This allows removing the zip tie stitching so that long smooth (supposedly) runs of fillets and fiberglass tape can be made.

 

After filleting and taping the inside seams, the boat was flipped and the outside seams were taped.

 

Next, a layer of 6 ounce glass cloth was applied, set in epoxy.  This sheathing was sanded smooth, and then any rough spots were faired with epoxy mixed with phenolic microballoons.
