To protect Ex Lex bottom and increase her stability I am adding two 4 mm thick phosphor bronze plates. Together they are 2 meter by 0,6. The high cupper content makes them antifouling.

Thomas and me checking if they can take the bottom curve.

Petter is helping to glue them.

The bronze surface is prepared by wetsanding it in NM-epoxy to make sure no oxygen will oxidise the surface.

In addition to gluing they will when the glue have set be scruwed.

To be continued…
