The How to Fiberglass a Boat DVD teaches you how to fiberglass the easy way, by looking over the shoulder of an expert who is working on actual boats. This video can easily pay for itself by preventing mistakes that can waste expensive fiberglassing materials. HOW TO FIBERGLASS A BOAT explains the process of covering a boat with fiberglass using epoxy and polyester resins, applied by both "wet" and "dry" methods. The DVD shows in a few scenes what may take pages of written text to explain. The scenes showing cloth application and smoothing out the inevitable wrinkles and air bubbles illustrate how easy the task can be when you know the "tricks". The section on making and using resin-putty will be of special interest to Stitch-N-Glue boatbuilders as will the detailed explanations and views of taping seams with standard and biaxial fiberglass.
The DVD is 90 minutes.
