    Howdy,

    I'm looking to build myself a boat and the method preferred/recommended by the designer is Resin (vacuum) infusion. I'd like to get some hands on experience helping you out for a day or two. I will bring any tools I have which you need that day and provide lunch (and free labor of course).

    Not a psycho - can provide references (a marina owner, and another marina board member, among others) to show I'm sincere and not a risk to visiting your shop, etc.

    Or do you know a supplier that holds workshops in the area? (I'll need to get my supplies from someone :) )


    Thanks,

    Fernando in VA

    Theres enough info on this site to get you started.Buy some proper resin and make some smaller parts/panels.This will give you the amount of distance the resin will flow in your environment.You'll make mistakes, but you'll get the hang of it.

    Tungsten, is there a good primer out there on the process? I'd like to make several panels roughly 1X2 foot....
