Canoe update

Today work on the boat started off with cleaning the shop. The floors were swept and the benches were cleared because it was the day to start fibreglassing. After a final wipe down with a rag fibreglass cloth was rolled over the entire length of the boat. The overhang on the ends were trimmed and a plastic drop cloth was laid on the floor to catch drips. With Martins dad mixing the resin and hardener, Martin and I first brushed on the resin then went along with a plastic spreader and smoothed the whole thing down, removing excess resin as we went. Tomorrow Martin will apply two more coats of resin with a sanding in between each will be applied.
