That’s where the Jameson comes in. These are empty bottles, but it would work with full ones. If the lids were on tight.
Glove up. Mix up some goo. Squeegee the first strip of glass full of resin. Then take the whiskey bottles and roll the strip up starting at each end and rolling to the center line. Here’s where you run into problems with Bushmills. The bottles are square and roll very poorly. Wine works, however.
Carry each strip over to the boat and start unrolling, dropping the glass exactly on your center line and following each lap layer out to the end, smoothing it in as you go, working out the bubbles and massaging the increasingly angular stretch of the glass into place.
If you are careful you can drop each of the three laps exactly on the center. Like I did here. (The other side was close but not this nice.)
Bingo. Done. Might as well do the bow and transom layups while we’re at it..
Then–and this is very important–begin emptying two more Jameson bottles for the exterior chines, as the ones used tonight are all sticky and covered with fiberglass strands. It really helps take the edge off.
