535Hrs – Filling Time
Today went as planned mixing and filling. I spot filled the all the irregularities I had marked yesterday and then got the first coat applied to the other side of the hull.
Weighing the base component Adding the hardener
Ready to mix Mix it up
Nice smooth mix ready to go.
To finish off the work session I started making some templates for the stands that support the hulls when they are turned, Not that I’m keen to get to that stage!
Thanks again to Jacques for his comments about the keel strips. He quite rightly highlights the potential difficulty in replacing sacraficial strips when the time comes, hence his option for solid epoxy. I have thought about this a lot and am opting for the UHMW. I’ll explain why in more detail when I get to them. I look forward to comparing notes with Jacques in some secluded anchorage in a few years time!
