- and for my birthday celebration I am ......
The final bottom layers of Kevlar, Innegra, 10 oz. S-glass, and Xynel went on.
With excellent help from my assistant Kevin. This time we did each layer consecutively, while the previous one was still wet. With fast hardener. Things got a little hectic for a while.
The Xynel was a rec from Davey Hearn at Sweet Composites, as a very tough outside layer which resists abrasion. It was very thin, only about 4 oz and took almost no resin, so I said, what the heck.
Next up is fairing the sides and a bottom flow coat/Cabosil/graphite mix.
Then, I'll just have to round up the usual suspects to turn the boat back over. There has been a definite absence of visitors to the MBS since the last turning.
Seems like that would be a nice B-day present.
