Fiberglass on deck!

IMG_1482After preparing the deck yesterday, I secured it with strips of fiberglass and polyester resin today. First by long strips 10-12 cm wide and then 20 cm wide, hiding the edges of the narrow strips with the finishing 20 cm wide strips of fiberglass. The aft deck and the entire drain area was first secured with a 50×70 sheet of fiberglass, securing the plywood construction in the deck.

  1. Hello,
    The project looks like it is common no along. I found you through a pic on Pinterest. Followed the links to this. Have you done anything else to it since August 5th?
    Look forward to seeing it.
    I’m going to start a very similar redesign and fix on a 1960’s Crosby Sled. It’s a shallow water (5″ deep) I outboard powered skiff fishing boat. If I can figure out how to upload a pic I will.. Everything your doing I will be doing very soon. I just finished a 10′ McKee taught tender. Used to run back and forth from the mother boats to the docks with people, supplies etc. never caught on or were that popular because of the weight. Just to heavy at almost 400lbs. Without outboard and fuel etc. it was heavy to hoist up for storage and if it got loose or jarred out of position then it was a problem to deal with on open water.
    I hope to see more soon.
