March 29 - Epoxy day

Two heaters had been running all night in the garage. This morning the outside temperature was about 5C but in the garage it was about 18C.

Put on even more heaters and rolled the cloth out over the boat.

Smoothed it out

and began to apply the epoxy

The wood looks beautiful as it appears.

 

Two hours later first coat is finished.

The structure of the glass mat is still visible

Afternoon

Added a second coat

Structure of the glass mat disappears and the boat looks more shiny

 

Evening

Brushed on a third layer

March 30

Trimmed off excess cloth
