Tip for new builders

Post by kjay » Sun Jan 03, 2016 11:22 pm

It may seem strange to people just starting on their build, mainly talking about ply boats, But might I suggest pre glassing both sides of about 4 sheets 9mm ply and just storing them. When you come to do you outboard and fuel tank seat lockers and bases, as well as the rear cockpit seating and table arrangement, you will be glad to have already fibreglassed the ply. I did because Mick didnt ( his suggestion to me to do the pre glassing). Makes the whole job much much easier. Glassing upside down and inside a box is not fun at all.
