412Hrs – Glassing & Fairing
A good work session tonight. I have glassed the skegs & sternposts and faired up the bow and stern sections. The glassing was quite tricky as the strips also cover the rudder mount rebates. To ensure I got a good bond without air bubbles I made up some ply pieces that fitted the rebates and then clamped them down on polythene to keep the glass sitting nicely into the rebates. I also put the final fairing mix onto the bow and stern sections with a large flat trowel that enabled me to get a nice smooth even finish. They look pretty!
