Tony undertook the construction in his backyard, in Hobart. Additional hands were provided by family and friends on larger tasks. The hull was strip planked Western Red Cedar over a male mould of temporary frames. The planks were edge glued using WEST SYSTEM R105 resin/ hardener modified with 411 Microsphere Blend low density filler.
In general, all high strength gluing, such as scarffing of the cedar planks, was performed using WEST SYSTEM R105 epoxy with 403 Microfibre Blend.
The hull shell was sheathed with 2 layers of 600g double bias E- fibreglass, and peel ply was applied over the wet layup. After peel ply removal, the hull exterior was faired with WEST SYSTEM resin/hardener modified with 410 Microlight. Two coats of epoxy were applied to the faired surface to seal it and provide additional moisture resistance, followed by several coats of 2 pack epoxy undercoat.
After turning over the hull, the external support was secured, internal temporary frames were removed and the interior surfaces prepared for glassing. The interior was sheathed with 1 layer of 600grm, and 1 layer of 400grm, double bias glass.
