As uncle Jack Sais,

y' are NEVER finished sanding. :cry:

Image

Prep for in - situ end pour. not really an end pour as such. i just mixed the wood flour really thick and screeded it in. Seemed to work OK. the boat is too long to stand on end.

Image

Done, with fibre glass matt worked in wet on wet. it is a lot prettier than it looks in the piccie.

Image

Epoxy saturation coats are on.

Image
Regards,
Mick

Very pretty hull there Mick.

I reckon you're going to be on the water before me (mind you you have a dozen other boats to nip out in if you feel the urge!).

Looking forward to seeing how you finish this one. The large cockpit offers the chance for some nice trim.
Cheers,
Steve

Hi guys, thanks again for all the kind word. i am getting a bit tired. i do 12 hour shifts at my work and then come home and put in another 3 hours or so on my boat.

More bloody sanding. :twisted: Tis all hand anding at the moment. The hippy neighbours are stating to get a bit p!ssed at me working late at night :D . Can't go upsetting them too much. They are good neighbours and very quiet.

Final clean up.
Image

Glass fitted and ready to wet out.

Wet out :D

Mick

Hey, Mick. You're coming along very nicely.

Invite the neighbors t see the boat, and let them paddle it once when it's done. That oughta cure them. Then - they'll keep YOU awake late working on THEIR boats.
