4 – Epoxy and tape

Today we epoxyed and taped half the hull and I am very happy with the outcome. HOWEVER long term readers will note the WE I used in the sentence. Today Trace (my wife) and I worked on the boat together…this was a great step forward in my life. If you have read the very start of this blog you will see that one of my goals it to have a wife and a boat. Today was the first time when the two of us have worked together on the dinghy AND she liked it. It was really fun for the two of us to work on the boat together, real fun. Now I know how Judy and Tom feel. Its good to have a sidekick (both ways).

Anyway, here is a couple of photos of the taping…

See you soon.

I found it really good tyo have two people working on th eepoxy work.  Much faster and much smoother.
Probably the best tool I found to smooth out the bubbles was my thumb.With Trace wetting out I could concentrate on getting a smooth finishI had to use a little scalpel to cut open some of the bubbles around the stitchesWe worked on the boat together today!!
