Andy Miller can’t wait to get out on the Lake and get boating, but it will be a while because he still has plenty of work left to do on his Bertram Moppie restoration. This week he gives us a lesson in using Polyester Laminating Resin and goes into why he chooses to use it over epoxy resin in some places, and not in others. Andy laminates 1708 fiberglass cloth to coosa board shapes that are cut out to fit as knees in hidden places, which will give these important structural pieces even more strength. Upgraded, modern materials like this offer great alternatives to materials that you may be used to but are harder to work with. As always it’s a matter of using the right product at the right time. You can count on Andy to set us straight in today’s video – have a look!
