Aft Bilge....

Despite the heat I tackled the aft part of the bilge with the epoxy and sand mix. This is the hardest part to reach as it is narrow. It also contained a nice layer of 30yo bilge crud.


Before


After

Using an angle grinder with a sander disk at full arm extension is always fun, but at least I did not grind through the hull. The epoxy mix went in easily and leveled out well. I had moved 200ft of chain to the stern to provide a slight slope when it sets. Tomorrow I will glass over the wooden dam and fair off the edges.

Looks quite neat and tidy. I must remember "play sand and epoxy". Who'da thought?
