gooey sticky progress.

When it comes to laminations, less is more. In terms of epoxy that is. It's one of those learn as you go things. On the first lamination of the frames I used more than twice as much epoxy then on subsequent lamination's. I started using 1 ounce, and only laminated one frame. Way too much. So I stepped down to 20ml on a single frame member. Still too much. The problem was that is the smallest amount i can measure and mix properly. So I bought more clamps(I'm up to 10 now) and started laminating two at a time. Perfection reached. Not too much, and not too little. So I'm one step closer to a sailboat.With that here's a pic that my beautiful wife took.
