Fibreglass | Rear Cabin Wall

The rear cabin wall is not a complex shape but it is a large area with long right angle edges in the companionway, so a pattern was required.

It was easy enough to measure the panel and transcribe its shape to a paper pattern, as here.


The big aluminium roofer's square is ideal for marking out large right angle joins.

This is the pattern, clipped in place for a test fit.


The overlaps from the cabin top were sanded and feather edged, as here.


And lastly the 'glass panel was fitted and wetted out, like this.


Progress is good!
