Resin Clear Coating

Having stripped the components that are not part of the hull, I now needed to clear coat them all with resin.

The rudder cheeks looked like this.

And here are the drop boards, tabernacle, and the centreboard patches.

I will give them two or three coats, sanding in between.

Like the last post, tedious and time consuming, but important.

  1. Stephen, good to see you progressing again. I took your advice from when we met and also drilled out the pivot holes to 25mm and used a a 12mm pivot pin. I think that is a good solution. I decided to coat my centerboard with graphite / epoxy mix rather than paint and I am pretty pleaser with the result. The inside of the truck was also done this way so it will be interesting to see how this works out over time.
