This week skimming over the fiberglassing of the side covers as it's been covered many, many times already and taking a closer look at the Armstrong bracket, how it was mounted and the modifications that the previous owner had done as part of the power conversion.

Sometimes simplicity is the most beautiful approach to something like this! Want to give a big thanks to everyone that commented last week and helped to fine tune the overall design for this space :-)! The covers and knees were built out of 1/2" Blue Water Coosa and laminated both sides using 1708 fiberglass with Totalboat 2:1 epoxy.

So this week ended up being more prep than anything. Making a couple new 'lockers' that will eventually hide and protect the fuel and shore-power lines.

Although fairing is typically one of the most time consuming steps of a fiberglass project, this actually went pretty smooth considering! Taking the time to trowel out the fairing as even as possible and being patient with the sanding does actually pay off in the long run ;-) Please support the companies that help to make these videos possible!

The first 500 to click here will get 2 free months of Skillshare's Premium Membership to explore their creativity: https://www.skl.sh/boatworkstoday5 In total I ended up going through nearly 2 gallons of poly resin for this fiberglass layup :-O!! Lots of laminations but unfortunately I already know that the bulkheads won't be pirate-proof lol (old Patreon joke)... As far as the weight compared to the original 1/2" bulkheads; the new ones are a little heavier but not by much and their 1/4" or about 5mm thicker so I thought that was pretty cool!!

So this week has been nothing short of a hot mess lol! Focusing on the short term progress, but also keeping in mind the long term goal of this channel has always been a Ying-Yang kind of thing for me.

The fairing process is typically one of the most time consuming parts of working with fiberglass, and fairing the Coosa was no exception! But overall it went really well!!

Was curious about being able to wet out fiberglass using penetrating epoxy and gelcoat; two resins that are not typically used for something like this but was a bit surprised with the results! After 48 hours the penetrating epoxy was surprisingly stiff (much stiffer than what was shown in this video).
