My First Stitch and Glue Canoe (Filling the Outside)

My first Stitch and Glue Canoe (Filling the Outside)

Hello Folks

Once the decks had set the overhanging strips were cut off and the hull turned over.

The next stage was to fill the outside of the joints. First the parcel tape is removed and then the wire stitches can be pulled out.

Between the wire stitches there was also a line of fishing line which was easily cut away.

Then the joints were all filled with more epoxy filleting mixture. This took a lot longer than it takes to write. The important point is to make sure the epoxy is properly mixed and the joints well filled. The neater you can make it the better it will look at the end so its best not to spread it too wide.

It needs to set overnight so that's where I leave it for now.

Thank you for reading.
