Forward beam mount - external lamination
I had the lower part of all beam mounts laminated when the hull was up side down. I laminated the upper part of the port forward beam mount, covering the compression pad area and overlapping inside the upper folding strut slot. After peel plying the whole area, I pressed pieces of foam scrap covered in vacuum bag in to the slot to make sure the overlapping part is firmly pressed against the mount. After curing this was removed and revealed a very satisfying result.
