Hi Glenn,

Welcome to the club !...how far have you got ?

I used a piece of 10mm wide 3.2mm thick spruce for the stem, and the transom will be 3/16th ply. I'm not going to fit the transom until the internal epoxy/glassing has been completed.and in any case I think it will be wiser to leave it off till the shadows are removed.

Primary sanding is pretty much complete, but I'll look at it critically tonight and then attack with the first sealer coat tomorrow...followed by an epoxy microballon mix to fill any imperfections once this has dried out.

Request for Advice from the old hands: I'm using SP epoxy, what quantity should I mix for these coats...dont want to mix too much, and there again need enough to cover.

Regards
Chris
