    ๐Ÿ“ Glassed the Hull

    Applied a layer of glass to the hull with epoxy.
    Then another coat of epoxy.
    Leaving it in the Sun to do "The Tighten-UP" (A line from a song, I'm sure Doug knows the name)
    Of course I used some old West Hardner which I may regret. Epoxy does have a shelf life.

    You express concerns about variation in colour of the deck but really these hardy show up in your photos. Maybe the photos do not convey the full picture, but keep sight of the purpose of the boat. If it is just for your own satisfaction then you will need to do whatever you think best, and so long as you are happy with it then all is OK.
    If however the boat is intended for showing, or for a museum then you might be inclined to re-sand the deck and get it all in A1 condition before varnishing etc.
    At our club we sometimes apply the 10' rule, ie. if it looks OK when 10' away then it passes muster. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hi Doug.
    It was never my intention to varnish the hull.
    I am leaning toward black or dark green.
    I would like it to look more authentic. She was never a Yacht
    If I was to have the hull 'Bright' I would have used spruce or maybe mahogany?
    But I do appreciate your feedback. Keeps me on the straight and narrow๐Ÿ™„

    Have to disappoint you this time Trev๐Ÿ˜” Enlighten me please (put me out of my misery๐Ÿ˜ญ)

    Superb woodwork and finishing Trev๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
    I do admire you 'marquetry' experts.
    Shame about the filler, would have been great to see her just highly varnished.
    Cheers, Doug

    Hi JB,
    I also add a little extra hardener, but I do worry that too much may prevent a proper cure,
    The Epoxy has hardened, a little more time and
    i wiil be able to sand the hull without too much clogging of the paper.

    Thanks flaxbybuck,
    It is a slow process, especially since other things are occupying my time.
    One thing about the Deck: the variation in color does bother me. It was caused by sanding irregularities. I guess I will just Chalk it up to being a work boat๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

    I've only just got to see your build Trev and very impressive it is.
    A lot of laborious work has gone into the build so far and it is beginning to show now that some elements are nearing completion.
    The deck planking looks great to me, and the caulking lines are fine. I think you wondered whether they should have been thicker but they look good to me.
    Likewise, a lot of detailed, and quite fiddly work has gone into the doors and windows, but they are looking really good, and all the better for the amount of detail you have provided.
    I shall keep an eye out for future posts. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Looks pretty good Trev, hope your glass goes off. I always use a tad more hardener, the older it gets,. Usually when you get the strong ammonia smell, it's telling you something. Recently had to buy new hardener for some locally made epoxy, as it was too slow going off, and stayed tacky. Resin keeps, but I think generally a year is probably it for hardener to be fully effective

    It would be nice to have more definition of the planking, but that is difficult to achieve with balsa planking as it needs to be encapsulated in some sort of coating.

    It has been a while, I have been waylaid by my HO.
    But I did a little more work on the Seguin.
    In the process of fairing the hull with epoxy and micro balloons, in preparation for application of fiberglass cloth and epoxy.

    Hi Garth,
    Do you have any pics of your Seguin?
    I would be very interested.
    I have used pics from other builds to refine my Seguin.
    And yes the lifeboat will most probably not be covered.
    It was only $30. US from China, which I thought was reasonably, considering the detail.
    Once I started building, I cursed the detail๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

    When I built my Sequin in 1990 There was no E-Bay to buy a life boat for that model so I used the kit life boat & some masking tape for the cover .P/S that's a real nice looking life boat & you probably will not put cover over boat. I got my Sequin from Booths Hobby on Concession Street . I was on Strike for 3 months so had lots of time to get it built for 1991 Valentine's show at LimeRidge Mall

    The deck seams finally filled in, I started planking the hull, a little on the rough side, but will be fine once sanded, faired and glassed, it will be fine๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„.
    Ran out of Balsa, so I started constructing and siding the cabin.
