Glassing the Deck

March 23, 2010

I have been looking forward to this step.  I finished cleaning up and sanding the deck – used a fairing board to start with then the random orbital sander with increasing sand paper grit 80 to 100 to 120 with a final sand with 220.  The deck looks great and it looks even better with a coat of epoxy.  Dave helped me cut and wet out the fiberglass.  Before the next two coats of epoxy, I will install the cockpit combing.

It was helpfull to have 2 people to get the fiberglass in the right place

wetting out the glass until it goes clear without any wrinkles or bubbles
