Bow Repair

– we ran into a dock and a floating log in the past month.

First, I cut out all cracked and splintered fiberglass and wood:

Taped the area and made a little work space:

Sealed the wood with epoxy, then filled the rest with epoxy-based filler:

Sanded smooth and washed with solvent:

Painted it black:

I bought a new camera.  A Nikon D5100, and a nice 55-300 mm zoom lens. I spent a couple of hours playing with it.
