not sure but I wont to be paddling it before xmas -- I will be sanding the outside of the hull though the week and hope to start glassing on the week end

daylight saving in a week should give me a bit more time after work to bore into it

todays update

I got the outside of the hull sanded up through the week and applied some wood stain to get away from the white plain paulowina and used an alcohol based stain in cedar colour

Image

and today it was Fibreglass time so this morning I got a layer of glass on and one fill coat later in the day

the epoxy has high lighted the colour - tomorrow afternoon I hope to sand up the inside ready to glass it on Monday ( I have an early day off work on monday )

Looking very nice cheater...Interesting that you have used fibreglass mat. I would have thought dynel cloth would have been a much lighter option with similar impact resistance and torsional strength.

not sure on that I think glass is stiffer and dynel better wear resistance - hopefully it doesn't need impact resistance I don't intend to run into things
