Prepping for Fiberglass on the Bottom of the Hull

Posted by Zachary Wiest in Fiberglass, Preparation

I decided to do a little more work before heading to bed tonight.  Tomorrow I plan to fiberglass the bottom of the hull, so I did some reading and made some decisions on how I could do the best possible job.

Only the bottom and first panels get fiberglassed and the manual cautions the builder about epoxy running when completing this task.  To curb any runs, I used some painter’s tape and plastic to create a skirt where I do not want any epoxy.

Next, I cut some fiberglass cloth to size and laid it over the hull.  I should be able to wake up tomorrow and start the process.

Time Spent: 0.5 Hours

Total Time In Build: 41.5 Hours
