It got a little hot with all this safety gear on, flashback to wearing MOP4 in the military, but fiberglass is not that good for your lungs. While sanding it felt like any breeze there was stopped, sanding the bilge and stringers to prepare it all for fiberglass feels like the hardest part of this project. After this I will be working the fiberglass, I imagine senses the stringers on this bout are only 1/4 this is going to be a pain, yet I still welcome it over doing more sanding. Once the fiberglass is started to be laid up we will feel like we are getting closer to some fun in the sun on the coast of Florida.
We don’t record while sanding, don’t want to damage our camera. I will say the more you prepare your surface, the better your results will be. While you’re doing this you are going to be hot, but really don’t rush it, you don’t want to have to get back in the gear for things missed.
These are all the tools I used while sanding. It was very hot while doing this part of the project, but I would not have done it without the protective gear. Fiberglass in bad for the lungs and will make you itch like crazy.
