Adding the deck panel stiffeners - Wharram Hitia 14

I am trying something new here in the description, adding the precise time in the video with a description of what I think I am doing there :)

0:05 marking the location of the stiffeners
0:20 cutting the stiffeners to the correct length with the jigsaw
0:25 drilling holes for copper wire that keep the stiffeners in place while the epoxy sets
0:35 applying unthickened epoxy on the stiffeners
0:40 applying thickened epoxy on the stiffeners
0:45 removing clamps that held the fore and aft deck panels in place while the epoxy hardened
0:50 removing nails that held the fore and aft deck panels in place while the epoxy hardened
1:00 removing the copper wire that held the stiffeners in place while the epoxy hardened
1:05 coat the inside of the deck panels with 2 layers of epoxy
1:21 i wish it wasn't so, but at some parts the sheer stringer did not adhere flat on the hull. I fill the gaps to the best of my ability with thickened epoxy
1:25 seeing how the deck panel will fit
1:30 using copper wire to stitch deck panel to bulkheads, later I decide to use clamps, because my copper wire is probably too thin and I feel it is not strong enough to keep the curved deck panel in place
