Couple of months and it will be water ready.
Wow Travis! That looks great! I have a couple of questions for you:View attachment 28854 View attachment 28855 Moving right along. However with NE FL weather I don’t see my self glassing anytime this week.
It took me 4 sheets of 3/4” Divinycell and about a half of sheet of 1/2” for the chines. I still have some 3/4 and 1/2 left over.
Yeah man I will take pictures and send them to you. Mine are clear. His lamination schedule on the plans is 2 layers on the entire hull and a third only to the upper chine radius. I am going to just do three on the entire hull to simplify things. Also for transom I am doing two layers of 1708 and tabbing into the hull. Inside I am doing a panel of 3/4 Coosa for added strength and two more layers of 1708 on the transom. But that is overkill according to Chris. Chris' lamination schedule per the plans is for 5/8 core using epoxy resin.If your plans are clear can you forward them to my email?
1708 or 1208 is 17oz biax or 12oz biax with a 8oz ChopStrandMat (1.5oz CSM in that standard of weighting). The CSM has styrene which dissolves with polyester resins (and I believe vinyl ester as well). It is not required for epoxy and will only make you use much more epoxy resin to wet it out without adding strength...[email protected]
What does it call for transom thickness? 1 1/2 of Divinycell?
Why 1708? That isn’t compatible with epoxy, correct?
