This first post is looking at the colourful fibreglass boats that can be found on the quayside at Mudeford.
Looking more closely at the hulls of these little boats it is clear that they have seen better days but it does give us, as plastics spotters, the opportunity to look inside the material.
The glass fibres can be seen very clearly suspended in the resin.
Part of this episode of the TV show ‘How it’s made’ shows us how a fibreglass boat is made.
