HAHAHAHAHa close enough. Fiberglassing it.
My brother decided to fiberglass his boat a few years ago. The soft cedar hull was taking a lot of dings on the mooring. With his engineering background he researches everything forever. Pays off I guess. He still has that boat, a 30' cold-molded Cirrus racing sloop. New Zealand design, it's up on the Hudson by the Tappan Zee bridge. One year we were prepping the boat in the early spring. All the sailboats in the boatyard wereup on stanchions like this, close together. A couple was next to us prepping their boat, and they raised their sails. The boatyard owner ran out cussing up a storm at them! A little wind and their boat would have tipped over and dominoed the other boats! Another time we saw a guy stripping his hull of bottom paint with caustic lye. He had long gloves on, but got a blob of stripper on his upper arm. He let it go, and the next day he had a freakin crater
on his arm
The guy had gone to the emergency room, and they had to flood the wound with vinegar to neutralize the lye.
