Port Side Forward Second Layer

After a bit of sanding the fabric edges from yesterday's glassification I wiped the forward section down and laid out the fabric.

Mixing a quart of epoxy at a time I started rolling it out. This section is fussy fussy fussy because of the step in the hull where the bulwarks join the side. The fabric once wetted out just does not want to lay down and forms a bridge.

After an hour and a bit it's wetted out. I'll be on bubble watch for the next few hours till the epoxy decides it wants to hold the stepped section down and not let go! PITA!

So the burning question of the day is: Do I have 'nuff 12 oz fabric to finish the port side? Well, stay tuned, we'll find out shortly!  ;-)
