Email This Page to a FriendPreview: How to Build a Caledonia Yawl, Part 19 – Turning the Hull Over
January 16, 2014
Flipping the hull over, a job that's scarier than hard, gives us our first chance to see just how big a Caledonia Yawl really is. "Round up the sheep, Agnes, let's take 'em for a boatride!"
NOTE: After filling screw holes and fairing scarfs and booboos and sanding the exterior, we rolled on and tipped out two coats of UNthickened epoxy. Sorry it wasn’t documented, as we did it late one night with no extra clean hands for the camera. Use the yellow foam roller covers supplied by your epoxy source — anything else will dissolve. Tip with a disposable bristle brush. You should be able to start the second coat upon finishing the first coat if you work your way around the boat. Good to have a helper, one to roll and one to tip, and keep the epoxy fresh in smaller batches so it doesn't get sticky.
