Tim, thanks for the CFSnet link. I've now ordered all the materials etc and I'm looking forward to the next stage of construction. I found out about the wax on their site as well. Cheers Dave

Dave,

Glad I was of some kind of help. That website has all the gear on it. Also order their catalogue as that has loads of additional and very useful info in it.

also try http://www.resin-supplies.co.uk/intro_page.htm

This has some info pages on it, including one on how to sheathe i believe.

Good luck.

Tim

I dont think I would use CSM at all, if its been made of plywood you have your structural strength already there, so I would sheath in two layers of cloth and then think about the finish.

On the finish I would go for Epifanes mono-urethane paint, if you do it nicely you would be hard pressed to tell the difference to gel coat, its cheaper, a lot easier and lot less likely to go wrong.
