I ordered most of the plywood I will need for hull and deck. I had some worries about the increase in prices but
plywood is currently only 10% more expensive then last year. I also ordered 48kg epoxy and ~ 150sqm biax cloth.
With less then 2000€ for most of the plywood for the whole boat and less the 2000€ for all the cloth and epoxy which should be enough for finishing hull and deck, and which I btw use excessive and not really economical, I’m quite happy and within my budget.
The backbone is laminted and mostly finished.
Bow transom and bottom panel is also precut but I still need to glass and epoxy on the inside.
I had the idea that it would be nice to have a coloured control layer if someone needs to sand the skegs in the future, for example for the renewal of the Coppercoat in 10-15 years, so I mixed some pigments into the last layer of epoxy. I don’t know if that is worth the effort. It is probably to much and burning money and time. I don’t think that I will do this any further.
