Loyalhanna Dockyard-Don's Fiberglass Work.


Hi folks, got today a fiberglass hull made by Don, owner of Loyalhanna Dockyard.
i have heard that Don learned the "art" of making top notch FB work from Karl, Microglass, well, i think that Don learned so well that his work is as good as Karl's!
(maybe better...hehe). i'll try to attach a couple of pics of this EXCEPTIONALLY WELL MADE HULL--as stated above, as good as Kingston Mouldings, Model Slipway and Microglass. Hull's outside needs no sanding, flawlessly smooth, thickness is about 2 mm even all across and waterline is neatly marked all around the hull. Prop shafts exits are marked as well.

Top notch work Don!

let me think about it!!
i'm getting a second hull of the same-YMS 329....for Yard Minesweeper, i may give that to Jeff, but it will be almost an scratch build--so talk about 5K commission at least, i can't pay him less than that--it's a lot of work to build it as the original!!, but more "meaningful" to me than the monies is that i can put something together on my own.
