JM pointed a trick out a while back... use for favorite deploy/shape method and wait a minute for the stuff to kick then mix a batch of neat epoxy and brush over the surface with a chip brush. Wait for that to kick the brush more clear on to prep for tape. Let it kick a bit then lay your premeasured/prefit tape into the now tacky top coat and brush/roll on till you have enough resin in the glass.

Once I understood that I swore at myself everytime I pulled out the SOB tool to fix fillets from earlier in my build (aka ALL OF THEM).

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

Got my sole filleted, transom knees glued in, filleted, and glassed, and my inwale strips glued up. Next order of business will be planing down the gunwale/inwale flat, and fiddling with that foredeck. Then, on to fairing, and LOTS of sanding, so I hear. :?

I took a week off from epoxy, wood, and glass....so no real updates on the skiff itself. However, I did a little fabricating instead, and worked on some accessories I’ve been designing and planning for a while. Decided to dry fit everything last night. My goal was a minimalist design and for everything to be removable. Everything is aluminum. I made the grab-rail to actually thru-bolt into the light weight Engel cooler. Once I play with trim and dial in the mounting location, I’ll use a Yeti-style cooler tie down kit, and strap the cooler down. That way I can take the entire assembly in and out as needed. The bucket holder on front is a Bote brand holder. I hacked it up and modified it for my needs. Likewise, I will put seadek pads on the bottom, and strap it down with cooler tie down kit, so it can also be removed. I bought the little tracks and paddle holders. They’ll simply be mounted to rubrail as shown. I’ll mount the machined push pile holders on the opposite side. Still need to fabricate my fuel cell, then onto finishing the skiff and mounting everything!
