Glassing the section at the transom
I started working stem to stern today. I don’t technically have a physical stem on the boat in a classical sense. I suppose one could argue we are building one up with the epoxy fillets on the inside of the bow. I grabbed the sanding gear after work today and prepped the rear-most section for glass.
The Nor’easter this week really made me happy that I have a garage available to work in. In the not so distant past I would have been working under a car canopy that would have taken flight with these winds and rain.
Construction thoughts of the day
Today I was already a bit cranky with work issues and then decided to take some frustration out with sanding. Apparently my headspace was already not so positive and carried into my thoughts. I was thinking several things. I hate sanding. I hate fiberglass. I hate fillets. That made me think if I built again I would want to just build a ‘wood’ boat. I also hate sanding things as part of maintenance, so I probably would be still putting a layer of glass and epoxy to seal everything anyways. It’s just a phase today and I know I don’t hate all of the aforementioned tasks. If I need a break from the glassing I’ll just work out the electrical design and requirements a bit more. I will be posting the general design shortly for feedback and/or suggestions.
