Re: First time fiberglassing

What may have happened is when you were using the heat gun it was pushing gases out of the wood creating new bubbles. Same thing can happen if you apply epoxy to bare wood as the sun begins to hit it.
It looks like you got everything wet out thoroughly, no dry spots. Looks good.

Re: System 3 Yacht Primer thickening

I recall someone on here talking about a product made by 3M (I think) that they found at the auto finishing store and thought worked great for filling pin holes. I don't know how it would compare to Kombi putty, but it sounds similar. Is there a good way to avoid creating pinholes? I assume the prob...

Re: Question from a lurker - epoxy and graphite issue

I'm thinking it's exposure to sunlight. Where you park it does the sun hit one side more than the other? Is that the side that is the worst?
You can probably sand off the oxidized epoxy and get down to black, but the only way to stop it from happening again is to keep it out of the light!

Re: 1984 Grady 242 Caribbean Transom Repair (+ other stuff)

It's probably not worth buying a tool for the job, especially at this point, but those that have used them swear by air chisels to remove the old transom wood; say it makes the work fast and relatively easy. If you are lucky enough to know where you can borrow one . . .

Re: GF14 glassing and sanding questions

The corduroy texture you see is the cotton binding threads, sand those ridges down but don't sand into the glass. Plastic will leave a smoother finish, but I wouldn't bother using it because you're going to have to sand anyway, and it's more sanding if you're sanding both epoxy and threads. The plas...
