The seed of adventure has been sown.

The goal is to take this boat on a trip that no other Wharram boat has taken.
From Great Slave Lake in Canada's Northwest Territories up the MacKenzie River to the Beafort Sea
and westward to the Bering Sea and south to the inside passage on the Alaska and British Columbia coast.

This sequence is of glassing the bow of hull 2. The job turned out well with only one small area where the glass lifted from the plywood because of excess resin. This happens when the resin starts to kick and it floats the cloth.

Hull sanded and cleaned with isopropyl alcohol ready for cloth.

Cloth draped over hull.

Cloth smoothed out ready for resin.

Partially completed resin impregnation of cloth with only the edges to finish.

Cloth folded up ready for brushing on resin onto wood prior to wetting out the cloth.

Tips: 1. Cut the bristles on white chip brushes down to one half their length. They work better this way. 2. In between glassing stages, if you are using a brush to work resin into the cloth, store the brush in a plastic bag in your freezer. The resin won't cure and you can use the brush over multiple days.
