22-6 WB restart after 10 years
« on: May 17, 2021, 07:48:37 PM »
Back in 2010 I tried to sell my 22-6" WB project well it didnt sell so I still have everything to continue so for now I need to reboot the project in my head first oh and clear the garage. I had cut all the parts and was ready to start frameing when it all stopped 10+ years ago so this summer I will slowly start the process again.

Congratulations resuming the project.

One thing I think would make things a lot less stressful on the big glue up days (bottom to stringers, sides to bottom) would be some slow hardener. If you have 3-4 people it might not be necessary though with 2 people I really had to hustle and would have liked some more time. If you are planning on a ton of glass in 1 day slow hardener would help as well.

Most definitely slow hardener for summer.  Oh the stress of glassing when your epoxy is going off on you. Always can dump in a paint roller tray and set in in a shallow container of ice cold water to slow it down too.
