I pride myself in understanding this building process, but this time I am a bit uncertain. I find that the instructions for glassing the hull exterior of the Shearwater Hybrid are a bit unclear. I presume that each layer of glass gets wetted out with some curing time between each layer, and that the additional coats of epoxy to fill in the weave come after all three layers of glass are on. This is not spelled out in the manual and could lead one to trying to wet out three layers of glass all at once - seems like a major mess to me. What ever the answer, I presume the same will apply to the multible layers on the underside of the deck aft of the cockpit.
Just as a side comment, I found the MC manual to be very detailed and easy to follow. (Boat Building for dummies - even professional Naval Architect dummies) In comparison, it seems to me that many details are glossed over in the Shearwater manual and I find my self referring back to the MC book as a refresher. It's all a bit of a challenge and that's a good thing.
