444.5Hrs – Draped
After finishing off the last bit of sanding and cleaning up, my thoughts again turned to the sheathing. Just out of curiosity I decided to pull out a full length of cloth and see how it sat on the hull. I’m not sure it was such a good idea because now I am even more scared! Just looking at the vast area of white cloth, timing it by four, thinking about how much mixed epoxy will be needed, how can I ever achieve a good result? I have read up all I can about the various methods other have used, applying to wetted ply, applying dry, rollers, squeegees, brushes, frankly I’m even more confused! I’m going to talk to my epoxy supplier regarding application times and surface prep and then I think I will try a couple of test pieces to see what results I get. Its not procrastination honest!
