About 74 hours total to this point in time….
Well, my little experiment was enough to make me abandon my plans to coat all surfaces with epoxy before assembly…or after assembly for that matter. Given my work schedule, kids’ activities, the cold weather and long cure times we have been having and my impatience….I just decided to forgo that concept. I am going to go the primer, undercoat, paint route after assembly.
So, tonight after work I screwed the side panels to the temporary form. After freezing our tails off at soccer – it honestly felt like it was going to snow – I came home and a neighbour helped me attach the bulkheads, stem and transom. Wow…it looks like a boat and not a pile of plywood stacked against the wall! I am revved!
Have a look!
