Thoughts of glassing the hull with two layers of 600 haunted me for ages, not fully knowing how to do it and having to do it on my own. Then I discovered peel ply !
I decided to glass the hull in glass cloth widths, one day at a time. Transom was first, then each piece laid across the hull, overlapping by about 100mm. While each piece was wet, I pressed on peel ply. The whole boat was covered, then a second layer overlapping the first layer, like bricks in a wall.
Below are photos of the process.
The best decision I made was hiring a professional plasterer to apply the epoxy and filler layers. First half was done by lunch, I was mixing and Kevin, the plasterer, applying the mix. Second half after lunch and then I faired for two days ! Then another, thinner layer was applied and faired again.
Before turning the hull, the waterline and center line were drawn. I also made a rough template for a cradle.
I made a copy of the skeg template from stiff insulation and shaped it with a wood file. The covered with 600 gm cloth and the insulation broken out.
