Acadia 19

< Back to Acadia


Now that the foundation was locked in place, I removed the temporary glue blocks and cleaned up the area, then cut several layers of fiberglass tabbing to fit the various areas.  Afterwards,  I installed an epoxy fillet all the way around the foundation.  This would add strength and ease the transition of tabbing all around the molded piece.

A little later, when the fillets had partially cured, I installed three layers of heavy tabbing set in epoxy resin.

At the leg opening in the bottom of the hull, I smoothed out the transition at the hull with additional thickened epoxy, preparing ahead for installing the final fiberglass, which I”d do once the leg was installed since I didn’t want to risk making the opening smaller till I’d rotated the drive leg for installation.
