Bobstay Fitting Installation Begins

Today I started the permanent installation of the bobstay fitting. This included roughing up the interior fiberglass that will get the fiberglass skin over the back of the fitting. Coating the cross laminate cutout with vynilester to reduce risk blistering should water ever creep in. Filling the gap between the sides of the cutout and the fitting with high strength vynilester filler. I also laid down the sealing tape on the inside hull that will be bagged in prepration for vacuum infusion. That is as far as I got today. Next time, fiberglass mat/roving and coremat will be cut, laid, bagged and infused for permanent installation. We are out of town next weekend, so it will be at least two weeks.
