Well I got out to the shop and dived in with both feet:-) This is the supplies I bought last Saturday plus my version of the shipwright recommended stirring and application tool. This tool worked extremely well. I’ve not done any filletting yet so I haven’t put it through all its paces yet.
Being mindful of the sponge like nature the ends of the plywood I am ensuring I spend a bit of time giving the edges a pretty thorough coat of epoxy. I even wedged in a few splinters in one edge void to fill the space and the dribbled a bit if epoxy in there for good measure. Below is an image of the inside starboard side. I dabbled a bit with the stitching of the plywood in the bow and stern and will definitely do so again. You can see here the chine logs after they were coated with epoxy.
I tried putting on the fibreglass cloth on the port side outside lower edge but think I don’t quite have that technique quite right yet. I am going to layout the two internal airbox sides and epoxy them well before I install them. Once they are in I can tape and fillet the interior angles and coat the whole inside.
Got sidetracked for a bit and I hit post instead of just leaving the post in draft form. Any way..The title comes from my almost immediately after starting getting resin on my knuckles just trying to open the cans:-)
This is an after shot of my supply table after I stopped for a break.
