Thanks for the encouragement Mike.

Got the external glassing done today. The 100g twill cloth worked really nicely and it all went surprisingly easily. I'm using "Easy Composites" slow set epoxy...and it really is slow. Glassing coat took 5 hours to cure to finger hard. I think it will take 24 hours to cure fully. Slow set certainly took the pressure off this task.

The weave of the cloth now needs to be filled...any opinions on whether I should just cover with a straight epoxy coat, or use a micro balloon mix in with it ?

Here are some shots of the hull after the glassing.

Have a nice weekend all
