20′ Banks Fishing Dory, USCG – Fiberglassing the Hull

We got some snow! It’s 25 degrees so first thing was to get a good fire going in the shop stove. Today I put in 4 hours. I prepped the haul for fiberglass seam tape and cloth. I then cut the tape and cloth to fit the bottom and up to the top of the chine plank. We can’t glass the complete hull because fiberglass cloth and resin does not like the sharp right angles of the lapstrake planks. I then mixed the MAS risen and hardener and began the process of wetting out the glass. It took twice as long to work the resin into the cloth because of the cold temp.
