The next stage was to cover the hull with a thin fibra glass matting and coat of resin, this stops any cracking of the balsawood and a better key to the fibra paste.
Next I covered the hull with thin layers of fibra glass paste and sanding to shape.
I then cut out the hatches and fit the combings around them, this stops water getting in to the hull.
The hull was given a coat of grey primer paint
