Getting There

I made some good progress with the kayak last week. I put in fillets and taped all the seams on the underside of the deck. My friend Craig helped me ‘glass the inside of the hull, and I almost finished cleaning up the seams on the outside of the deck.

A few thoughts…
1. when ‘glassing the inside of a hull, maybe it’s best to put nice large radius fillets along all the seams. The fibreglass really doesn’t like lying down inside edges
2. black epoxy is a pain to work with
3. sanding through epoxy does not neccessarily create a halo effect. If you’re wondering why I mention this, please refer to #2 above…

  1. Sounds like the end is nearing. Hang in there. I expected a paddle this summer.

  2. Looking good! ain’t that epoxy just peachy to work with … 🙂

    BTW, if you get some on your hands or whatever, you can wash it with white vinegar and get the stickness off.

    Good luck on the boat!
