Building the Squirt in St. Petersburg (Russia)

Post by Aleksey »

Hello everyone,
I apologize in advance for my language - I do not speak English very well. I want to imagine the construction of my boat. I want to express my gratitude to the builders from this forum - I learned a lot from you.

These are already completed stages of construction. Some required a fairly long understanding.

This is my first boat building experience. Although I can’t say that I am new to various work issues. Nevertheless, while I was building, I learned a lot in this area.
fiberglass coating ... my friend allocated a small piece of his workshop for construction, for this I sometimes helped him with the manufacture of interior orders. But the workshop was very poorly heated and work with resin turned into a show with a hairdryer. The resin froze for a very long time, it happened that it took three days.

Аfter stain painting, I applied five layers of epoxy. After each layer, I ground the surface and cleaned the craters.
