It's looking good, Doc. Those horns - you must make a feature of them. Bright red stain, perhaps?
I believe the epoxy bit aint much fun! What are your plans for hatch covers? Looking forward to seeing it on the water.
I started the epoxy today by rollering on a seal coat. It isn't like maple syrup. It's like golden syrup, even though its been in a warming cabinet for 2 days.I had already made up the plates for the bulkheads, and used these to practice laying some glass cloth down to get the feel how the the resin works. so far so good.For hatches, I will probably go for a rectangular oval if you know what I mean, as it is stronger than a squared off/trapezoid design, as you are not cutting along a strip, rather across a lot. I have found a source of 1/2 round closed cell neoprene which I am going to use for the seal, with a bungee system holding the hatches on from inside the boat.I am, however debating whether to fit a Kayaksport day hatch.Also; a fixed bulkhead/footrest or adjustable rails?The skeg is already here, a Karitek wired version.
