August 2, 2003: A Visit to "Fiberglass Coatings Inc" -
I'm very fortunate to have Fiberglass Coatings Inc. in my area and have used their products for every boat that I have built (with the exception of those at Wooden Boat School). Before doing the epoxy fillets on my bulkheads I thought it would be interesting to take a tour of the facility.
One of the many aisles of laminating supplies.
Roger inspects some of the fiberglass cloth/matting that is available.
The abrasives section.
Patrick Hery, Technical Sales Rep., assists me in selecting my epoxy adhesive.
On the next page we'll use the epoxy that we've just purchased to "weld" the chain locker bulkhead to the hull using epoxy fillets.
