I was curious to hear opinions about how to glass the exterior of the hull for a Shearwater 16 hybrid.
This boat uses 4 oz. cloth (I think?) in three layers. First layer covers the the entire hull. Second layer covers the bottom panels, overlapping the chine onto the lower side panels. Then there are thin strips that run along the keel from bow to 4 feet back, and similarly from the stern.
I'd be inclined to wet out each layer separately. I recall that in class at CLC, it was possible to lay dry cloth over a layer very soon after it had been wetted out. I'm guessing that the second layer could be rolled out, cut and wetted an hour or two after the first layer had been wetted out? Then similary for the strips on the bow and stern, though I might be inclined to do those the next day.
I've also seen build logs that look like all the glass was layed out, and then wetted out in one swell foop. Seems risky to me.
Another way to do it would be to wait a day between layers. Would it be necessary to do a light sanding before laying the next layer if done this way?
What seems like the best schedule to use for this step? How long would you wait before laying the different layers?
