Planking complete on 20′ Gaff cutter.


Well here we are with all of the planking complete and in the photos you can see I’m draping the fiberglass cloth over the hull. You can see in the photo below that I’ve added some extra layers along the bottom of the deadwood.

I left the edges over long along the first lap and will trim it off once the epoxy resin is going green i.e. not quite hard. DSC_0021

You can get a nice idea of the shape of the hull from the photo above and I’ll tell you it got pretty slippy up there when I was rolling on the second and third coats. I had to get up on the boat to do inside the centreboard case and along the keel.

It’s coming close to the summer season and it’s time to start thinking about getting on the water. What better way to do it than in your own custom built Roeboat, why not give me a ring to discuss your current or future boat +353861586937
