Spent an hour or so today rounding edges and scuffing up epoxy. I’ll give it all a good sand with 100grit and then hose it off with the air compressor. About ready to start glassing.
I like to wipe down the hull first with water or alcohol (with a rag) to remove any blush or sweat before sanding or laying glass. One of the reasons I only use BBC's MarinEpoxy with the slow hardener, very little blush if any!!

Got out in the garage and started rolling out the tape yesterday. Didn’t get a chance to apply any epoxy but it’s ready to go. Hopefully I can get rid of this kink in my neck so I can get this show on the road.

Looks like it will be a nice clean tape job. Don't forget to pre-wet your wood before tape or any fiberglass goes down.

Yeah I tried to make it easy on myself and lay it all out dry and make all my relief/fold cuts. I’ll roll them all back up and label them with some painters tape so they’ll be ready. Hehe I’ll be sure to pre wet :lol:

I figured that's what you were doing, I do the same thing.

I've had trouble with the tape sticking and pulling threads of glass off. Am I using the wrong kind of tape :doh:

Yeah painters tape seems to work the best. Still pulls fibers but if you hold them together as you peel it, it won’t pull most of them.

I marked the fiberglass tape with a sharpie. Really helped me lay the tape down.

Question for you,

is it only one layer of tape on the keel?

Yeah I questioned that as well. 1 outside on the keel and 2 inside based off the lamination schedule.
