Adeline 6


The new layer of fiberglass inside the repair area required minimal prep:  just a quick water wash and some light sanding to remove any rough edges and scuff the surface slightly.

After confirming the pre-cut core pieces still fit as I expected, I prepared for the installation by wetting out the core on both sides, saturating the scrim and top surface with epoxy.  Then, I applied thickened epoxy adhesive to the deck with a notched trowel, and installed the core on both sides, along with the solid fiberglass platform for the mast step.  Pressing the core into the  adhesive, I filled any small gaps around the edges and weighted the whole area down beneath a layer of protective plastic, leaving it to cure overnight.  By necessity, there was little else I could do at this point to advance the project, so I spent the rest of the day working on other things.
