Quintessens osmosis treatment.

Finally after 7 months the laminate seems to be dry enough.
Almost everywhere under 10% on the moisture meter ! Almost as dry as above the waterline.














So she`s going inside with her bigger sister a Contessa 38.








A good sanding and then two layers of thin epoxy for filling the tnyest pinholes after peeling off the gelcoat and some laminate.






Ready for a few layers of 280gr glass.
Hull still shining with the first 2 layers Epoxy.









Always better with some help !

Sanding,sanding,sanding...





Laminating the first layer.










Sanding between the layers.
I recommend a closed suit, but when its 28 degree outside its less hot this way.













Sanding the waterline..









So first layer is finaly done.







Second layer..
Found myself a new method for laminating alone : ducttape !! This works great and gives more precision for placing the glass.






Two layers of laminate, some filler and ready for the last layers of epoxy-cuppercoat !

















D.I.Y. Cuppercoat : 2 parts cupperpowder 1 part epoxy.






.









Looks and feels like molten chocolate !
















A bit strange this red-brown antifaul color.









First layer of cuppercoat is ready.
Dreaming of sailing already...
