And here is the question for Larry.

So when I apply the graphite coat, you suggested wet sanding. However, this will not be the final coat. I am still planning on painting the bottom. So it will still get sprayed with all the necessary coats. With this in mind, how critical is the sanding of the coats of graphite epoxy.

I would sand it down to point where I thought the high build primer would cover any remaining roller stipple/orange peel. It will be a lot easier to sand the.primer than the graphite.

That sounds like a reasonable idea. I am having it professionally painted so I am sure they will hit the surface with sandpaper one last time as well before they start with the primer.

Thanks!

Here are a few pics of the latest progress.

I will soon be rolling on the graphite and flipping it onto the trailer. A little light sanding on the transom and it will be smooth. The side you see below is pretty much done but needs a little light sanding. The other side is what I am working on now.

The bottom two are of the bow eye. I have been working on the detail of the epoxy that rests just under the stainless steel plate. I used the tape to get the epoxy flat without having the plate stick to the boat.

Here is a question for the group about lamination (I seem to have misplaced my lamination schedule).

When I fiberglass the deck onto the sheer, how many layers of 12oz laps down over the side? Will one layer on the outside suffice? The deck of course will be fixed to the inside of the sheer and the coming as well (I think I have these terms correct). I find it easier to fair with fewer layers.
Thoughts?

I think one layer is plenty. That's all I've ever used anyway.

Well it's good to know I'm on someone's list where it's not the s--t list! :lol: Thank you sir! Just e-mail me when it gets close to time and we'll go from there.

Very nice job on the bow eye clean-up. Good ideas.

Glad to hear you are feeling better, too!

Thanks Buddy!!!!

I don't keep a s--t list. I default on the side of grace. Unless we are fishing and you catch a bigger fish then me. Then I'm pissed!!!! :wink:
