Do yourself a favor and sacrifice a pool noodle to make for a more comfortable sanding experience as you work forward. The discomfort that I felt while applying glass in this area made me think about what could be done to improve the situation. I remembered we had some spare pool noodles and cut one into sections prior to starting the sanding process. Instant relief was had and we laughed and laughed. Okay, no we just sanded.
Prep for epoxy fill coats
I removed all of the unnecessary items from inside the hull area and sanded, sanded some more, and then vacuumed everything twice. I mixed up a few batches of epoxy with a bit of fast cure hardener added to allow for faster re-coating of the glassed areas. I used a spreader first and then rolled out the epoxy but focused only on the starboard side. I stopped after two batches since I started work late after dinner this evening and have another busy work day tomorrow.
