Noticed that the shear cleat.....

....mounted on the aft face of bulkhead 9....

"Floor boards"

These are from the building stocks and make it a bit easier to move around. Also the old knees like this surface better.

Partally filleted.

Tom hard at work.

Cutting the hatch doublers.

3 stages of fillets. Gooped on, filleted, cleaned up.

Tom cutting out the bunk top.

Started to use a baggie with the fillet compound in it like a pastry bag. A bit quicker and less mess to clean up. This is the bead that came from the bag.

And the fillet smoothed out.
