The eleven window frames are made with polyester resin and gel coat, and they are bonded to the boat with west systems epoxy resin, and tabbed in with fiberglass around the outside. We pulled a fairing fillet around them, with Awlgrip Awlfair and then primed with Awlquick and 545 until they were blended in with the rest of the primer on the boat. The windows will be bonded in to the window frames. No leaks, no seams. Noel is making the transition from a wooden boat, to a cold molded boat and associated maintenance. No leaks!
We sealed the plug with Duratec Primer.
It was sanded out and polished.
We waxed the plug, and sprayed gel coat over it.
We laid up the mold, and then let it sit for a few days before glassing iron pipe to support it on our saw horses and keep it flat.
We pulled the mold the next day, and cut the flange straight.
Mold read to lay up parts. We waxed it ten times with Partall Paste wax. The mat is up on rolls to make it easy to pull over the mold. We used both 1.5 ounce mat as well as veil for the skin coats.
