You got me nervous so I went out and checked. All is good.

The tape method worked great. Thanks to all for the recommendations. I stuck little squares every 6 inches or so all around to hold the cloth in place. Then I wetted out the cloth as I figured saturation and getting to the substrate would be easy. It was. The glass stuck so well I was able to pull most of the tape off and finished wetting out the spots. I just checked on it and there are a few pull aways from compound angles around the strakes, but nothing a little grinding and filling before putting the next layers on can't take care of. No run out from the vertical or upside down positions. The epoxy is already hard after just 4 hours or so. Fastest I have seen it set.

Tomorrow will be some clean up then more laying glass. I am happy again.

Yes the steps that make em ride so good also make em a pain in the ass to glass!

On verticals i tend to try and work the resin up during layup to keep resin in the top. Ill put some of the almost gelled stuff from the bottom of the pot on the top too at the end of the layup to try and get the layup gelled up, up there.

Hard to put that into simpler words hahah

You can't really tell from the picture, but there are 4 layers of glass wrapping around the sides and bottom and it is very flat. Should be minimal fairing next then time to paint. Well, that area at least. I still have more glassing for the deck to do. I want to be completely done with glassing, grinding, sanding and fairing before I paint anywhere. At this rate I should be in the water by Spring. Ugh.
