This week I interview . This is the third episode of what will probably be several episodes where we discuss the tools, materials and techniques of glass reinforced laminate’s with Louis Martins a long time listener and boat builder located in Lisbon Portugal. In other words he is teaching us how to lay up graphite or fiberglass using mostly polyester or epoxy resins and fiberglass repair techniques.

If you buy or build a boat you’re going to need to learn these techniques and while it’s better to actually watch videos on this topic. Here you can at least get a head start in the terminology and the thought process of learning to use epoxy reinforced fiberglass, graphite or Kevlar and also using polyester resins with the same materials.

This week we concentrate on Fillers Here is some information for web sources for this:
