Laying out fiberglass, wetting it out with epoxy, removing the excess and applying a fill coat. For this particular boat this will not be the last coat of glass on the hull. Another layer will be added after attaching the deck. Some of the techniques I used in this video are based on that expectation.

Here is a tutorial for the technique i use to prepare balsa or plywood parts for paint by fiber glassing them. Part 1 shows you the steps of fiber glassing a plywood and balsa flap on a 1/5 FW-190.
After much debating we decided to try fiber-glassing the belly of the Skywalker. I a store nearby I found the light fiberglass. I asked the person in charge about what resin will work best on a RC Plane for rough landings. We agreed that epoxy could be too hard and brittle. I needed something hand and flexible. He suggested "EnviroTex Lite" and explained how to mix it and how to apply it. This is my first fiber-glassing ever!! It turned out to be easy and so far it looks great! Next is see how it behaves in the landings. The surface looks smooth, hard and flexible. It is light, very light.

In this video of the video series "How to Build a Surfboard", I laminate the bottom of the surfboard. I didn't cut the relief cuts for the nose and tail before glassing as I was trying something new (tinting the board). The lamination for the deck video shows the proper way to do it, see the link below. Also in this video is installation of the Futures Fin boxes during the lamination. Correction the correct measurement by weight for the Resin Research epoxy is 100 resin to 45 hardner. http://www.resinresearch.net/id8.html Laminating the Deck video shows how to tuck the rails including the nose and tail sections: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1usGqx68L8 Here is the playlist for the video series: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHeE1mcmnNBSXs0ymSgrxwF5od6gqvX07 Music: "Wall...

From the Orca Boats series of videos on wooden canoe building, the outside of the hull is fiberglassed.
This is from crackhead09 showing you how to glass.
I apply one layer of 4 ounce fiberglass cloth on the outside of the deck and hull. The cloth is wet out with epoxy resin. This is from a series of videos showing the steps of building a wooden kayak using the "strip-planked" or "strip-built" method. This particular boat is a high performance sea kayak design called the Petrel by Guillemot Kayaks. More information about the boat is available at http://www.guillemot-kayaks.com .

Cedar Strip Canoe Build #8: Fiberglassing “glassing” the Hull. This is my eigth video in a series of videos on how to build a cedar strip canoe. This video focuses on fixing the fiberglass sheet to the outside of my canoe using west systems epoxy (105 & 207). This is the final step before I am able to flip the canoe right side up for the very first time. If anything is unclear after watching the video, please feel free to leave a comment below.

In this video, i prep the plugs to be ready for fiberglassing. I sand the raw plug first then skim a layer of spackling on top, sand again and spray on multiple coats of PVA drywall sealer to build thickness. a couple layers of latex paint over it to seal the drywall sealer (ironic). Also, my buddy adam has car problems. made many poor life choices, and many of them had to do with buying terrible cars.
