The pictures tell most of the story. After sheathing in epoxy the wooden supports were primed. The lockers, with some veriation for the gas locker (see below), were sanded and undercoated with a coat of 10% thinned Hemple Multicoat. Finally 2 coats of unthinned Multicoat were added and touched up with a third where necessary. This was mainly where parts that were difficult to see or access had been missed for fear of leaning on wet paint. Multicoat is particually suited to the lockers and is easier to obtain locally than International's Danboline.
The layers of glass fiber were then built up gradually.
As you can see from this photo these steps were all carried out before the process of filling and sanding, filling and sanding and yet more filling and sanding of the cockpit and deck started.
Painting was with Multicoat. The hole is for an inspection hatch, just in case I need to get to the hull.
Ultimatly this locker only had half a season as a container for the gas bottle, which was never conected to the pipe you can see here. The story continues here.
