MELONSEED 13'4" - Built by Etienne Muller 2020 - Designed by Selway Fisher

I am not glassing the mast foot. The shapes are too complex to make it an easy job, so I slathered on the first coat of epoxy and really blasted it with the heat gun to get it to penetrate deep into the pores of the timber, especially on the ends. This will be in an area which I donít want to revisit for maintenance, so I epoxied the hell out of it. The support stick is hot-glued to a spot that will be seated in thickened epoxy when it is glued into the hull.
