Bow to the Grindstone
I glassed four layers today. It was so hot that the epoxy was kicking off before I could have a drink of water and admire my work. At the bow, I had to cut pleats in the cloth and carefully wrap it around the multipe curves and angles. It was a little like trying to iron a shirt after you'd already put it on.
A little more sanding and the gunwale will be complete. Then . . . . wait . . . . more sanding!! The rest of the hull will be prepped and at least the primer coat will go on. It is so much more fun when all the hard work leads to actual physical improvements. I can do this!!!!
