Re: I built this boat

That looks like a fascinating project @PeterH. I trust our avid boat fans would be thrilled if you shared some details about how you constructed it.

Re: I built this boat

Hey Mitchell,

The boat was built some 35 years ago  and now has been sold.

Me and a mate of mine built one each. It was a great lot of fun.

It took a couple of days for the to lay the fibre glass and resin, and several

more days to fit the deck etc.

It was a simple  process, laying the glass fibre and then applying

the resin, and when it was done we did it all again about 4 times.

The coloured layer was the first layer laid.

The mold come borrowed from another mate.

We built the 2 boats because we were Scuba divers and needed transport 

to Rotto and other coastal areas.

I'm now 76 years old and no longer dive.

Cheers.

Wonderful @PeterH. Thanks for sharing.

 

You may be interested in taking a look at another boat build that was shared on Workshop recently by @deano1966.
