Preparing Glass Coating

The epoxy impregnation of the hull has been finished and I already started sanding the surface to prepare the glass coating.

The hull is coated by stitched biaxial fibreglass +/-45°, 600 g/m².
The designer Dudley Dix requires just 450 g/m² at mast step area as shown in sketch bellow. But I think a stiffer hull and harder surface is worth the higher effort.
