407.5Hrs – Glassing Keelsides
I have started again with glass reinforcing. Tonight I did 3 of the 4 keelsides. I’m using 150mm (6″ wide) bi-ax and I intend to run two more lengths overlapping the keel. This will give me three layers in the most vulnerable areas. I will do the same on the bow section, stem, skeg and stern. It’s extra work but sits comfortably with my desire to build Gleda strong.
I have a horrible feeling that this weekend might have been the last taste of our abysmal summer. The nights are already drawing in and I noticed a real temperature drop tonight. I’d better get used to it though cus its going to be a long long winter!
