Glassing the hull

We have had 3 sessions now, adding 2 layers of chopped strand mat and 1 intermediate layer of cloth. We had a couple of extra helpers for the first session - thanks Callum and Mal! That got the back half of the boat done, the following 2 sessions with just Bill and myself have completed the front half. Just the keel and the skeg left, sounds easy!

Bill made paper patterns for some areas, where there was quite a lot of shape. The midship areas were simply measured and the cloth left square.

The view from where I sit to write this has changed, it looks slightly more finished.

The - almost - finished hull. Next we get to the hard part, longboarding! As if the glassing wasn't a workout...
