Quick Canoe Update – Epoxy fun!

Posted by on August 11, 2016

Two nights ago I completed the epoxy fillets on the inside of the hull – effectively permanently gluing the ply in place. Yesterday, after the fillets were good and cured, I flipped the canoe over. I took all the duct tape, screws, and finishing nails out/off. I then used the plane to cut any overhang of the bottom-side joint down. Then I spent most of the rest of the time yesterday, hanging tarp “walls” so I can work in the rain. It isn’t raining yet, but it will be by the weekend!

Tonight, I got the chines and stems glass/epoxy taped.
