Day 16

6/12/2012

How do you apply two coats of epoxy in one day?  Easy, apply one coat at 8:00 in the morning, go to work for 10 hours, then apply a second coat in the evening.

The weave of the fiberglass needs to be completely filled in with epoxy, and the only way to do that is to apply successive thin coats 8 hours apart until the weave is no longer visible. 

Here is the first of those additional coats.  You can already see the weave starting to become less obvious and the boat taking on the glossy sheen it will have once many, many coats of epoxy and eventually varnish are applied. 

Later that day...

More and more fill coats.  Pretty boring really, just rolled on epoxy building up layer after layer.
