To quote Tom Hanks in Cast Away (kind of):

I...HAVE...MADE...FIBERGLASS!!

First time doing fiberglass and it wasn't that bad. Had a small section of rot in my forward bilge so I cut it out, pulled up the West System manual on my phone, double checked every step, and had at it. It looks like a first timer did it, but boy am I proud of myself!

I think I hit rock bottom on the di$coveries on the boat about two weeks ago and now we're slowly clawing off the lee shore of deferred maintenance!

Who knows what tomorrow will bring but today's an up day!

Congrats - FWIW the main difference between newbie and experienced fiberglassers is neatness of workmanship. The more you do the neater it gets and the less scratchy & itchy grinding you have to do.

I don't know how many times I have paraphrased Tom Hanks in Cast-a-way.

Glad to know that I'm not the only one who talks to volleyballs.
