Side Keels

The side keels have now been welded up and are in the workshop, for prep work then epoxy coating.

We will be grinding the surface using 4.5-inch grinders and a standard dry stone, the surface will be cleaned with biosolv, once we are happy with the surface we will paint on with a scrubbing action 1 coat of low vis epoxy with a mixture of 50% fast hardener and 50% medium hardener. this will give us a quick jell time without being too quick to work
