Scupper 36

< Back to Scupper

Wednesday

To get started, I installed the two layers of biaxial tabbing on the starboard hull/deck joint, repeating the process I’d completed on the port side earlier.

After a break for a few hours while I completed some work on another project getting ready to leave the shop later in the week, I lightly sanded the new fiberglass on the port gunwale to prepare it for fairing.

After cleaning up, I installed two layers of tabbing over the taffrail/transom section of the hull/deck joint.  Here, I required shorter sections to better approximate the curvature of the seam.

Finally, I applied the first coat of epoxy fairing compound to the port gunwale, beginning to smooth the new work in to the existing surfaces of hull and deck.  For now, I focused on filling the edge between the top layer of tabbing and the existing surfaces, and filled the weave of the cloth in the remaining areas.

Total time billed on this job today:  5.25 hours

0600 Weather Observation:  40°, clear.  Forecast for the day:  Sunny, 80s
