Oh yes! Just a 5kg of epoxy and a first layer is complete. And it didn't even need to mix any filler. The temperature was around +10C and the resin was quite viscous in its pure form. I'm tired to roll it out to surface.

I know what you mean. Now you need to rest when that layer cures over night, so you are fit for the next one tomorrow. It's also not fun to put on masking tape for every new layer.

Keep up the good work!

It was difficult, but I done it! That is all for the bottom. Now I need a little holiday.

I think, antifouling is not nessesary for cold waters, where I planning to sail this summer. There are grows only a bit of seagrass like a green snots, which are easily cleaned off with a brush on the long handle.

You didn't forget to do the rudder, did you?
