Wood Duck 12 Hybrid Build Diary

What better project than a boat build during lock down!  First build for me and very much looking forward to it!  Bit nervous of making mistakes but help on hand from Fyne.

Re: Wood Duck 12 Hybrid Build Diary

Yah, and a BUNCH of us over here across the pond enduring a variety of unusual circumstances affecting what had been our daily lives before this virus thing showed up.

Good luck! Feel free to post questions here that you may have. This forum is a vastly more practical place to air your concerns than the one CLC hosts in the US as it's so much easier to post image files here than there... and we all know how a picture can be worth 1,000 words, don't we?

Carry on!

Re: Wood Duck 12 Hybrid Build Diary

Thanks for reply.  Few lives unaffected by the virus and no end in sight.  Scary times. 

So far, not too many problems and good to know the forum can help.  Will post more pics later today as hull now complete and tacked.  You are so right, pics so much easier than words.

Keep well and best. J

Re: Wood Duck 12 Hybrid Build Diary

I decided to firstly apply one epoxy coat to the cockpit and interior then 24 hours later, fully rub down then apply second coat with
a roller.  Also good to get some practise using fibreglass before starting on the hull! Sanded the hull by hand with 240 grit sandpaper and filled the copper wire holes with wood epoxy.

Waiting for the boat name transfers to arrive before I fibreglass the hull...she is called Winifred!
