A working session at fusion fiber
Teddy arranged for a working session at Fusion Fiber. Dec 20 turned out to be a cold day in Breezy Point. All the puddles in the parking lot were covered with ice. Inside the workshop, Mr. Whitley got his kerosene "blast furnace" working. Boy, does a powerful heater make a world of difference. Once the chill wore off, Teddy and Sean were put to work fiberglassing a replacement transom on a boat that was being converted from a duck hunting boat to a fishing boat. While the resin was curing, the duo got to help with the re-painting of a large (and fast) boat outside. The clear coat had already been removed. A layer of guide coat was sprayed on and Teddy and Sean took turns sanding the guide coat off. Then it was time to return to the warm interior and apply gelcoat to the transom. Mrs. Carts was assigned photodocumentation and note taking duty for this trip. We all learned a lot.
