Nice clean lay up on the hull bottom. Well done!


Sanding is cathartic...

Sanded it all down yesterday with 38grit and got the transom ready to glass.
When I glassed the bottom I wrapped it over the transom 4-5 inches, so sanded that transition smooth and layed a solid layer over the transom and forward on the bottom 24inches.

I had layed a 6ft straight edge across the back and found a fairly uniform 1/8" hook all the way across. The plans allow for up to 1/4" so I am not worried, but going forward with this peice 24" shares the love of the multi layers at the corner over a greater distance.

Very nice! Did you put one of your helpers in charge of letting you know when the epoxy is hard? :D

Yes. Why?

I've been thinking a bit about it. I struggled a lot with pinholes on the canoe....
I think after my initial sanding to knock the cotton thread lumps off the top I will brush or squeegee a coat of straight epoxy then while it is still green the first good layer of fairing material.

My thought is that the straight epoxy will work down into the gaps between strands better than the thickened fairing material and eliminate any of those hidden pinholes before I even start.

However before I do that, I need to attach my chines and strakes and rubrails, I don't want to bond them over fairing material.

First round just use a loose mix of blended fairing filler and press it it in with a plastic squeegee.
Just fill the weave . On the hull sides you will have to go with a thicker blend to get it to hang.

I my hands, pinholes can appear in pure epoxy when applied on any surface using any applicator. I'm talented that way. :D
