Picking Trash in the Boatyard

February 26, 2017

Presumably this is part of a hull. Found it in a trash barrel in the Cortez boatyard. Click to see the texture better.

  1. It looks rusty at first glance and with the colour as it is but on closer inspection I see it is fibreglass! Nicely caught.

    • Thanks, Alastair. It is the color of rust (hadn’t thought about that!), but you’re right: it’s fiberglass.

  2. There are a lot of boats in this area made from fiberglass. This one may have seen better days but it’s terrific subject matter.

    • Agree. This was just a chunk of stuff about 12 by 18 inches. Wonder where the rest of the boat is . . .

  3. I knew someone who worked in fiberglass boat building, in Maine, until it nearly killed him – I do think he got out in time! It’s nasty stuff but it’s making a nice texture here, years after.
