Re: Glassing Deck questio
Posted by Don on Jun 19, 2004
You want the deck fiberglass to overhang the hull by 1" to give strength to the shear line. Put your tape 1" below the shear line and trim the excess fiberglass with a razor when the epoxy is still green. Then remove the tape. Be careful not to push to hard on the razor when trimming the overhanging fiberglass. If you cut into the hull fiberglass with the razor it will leave a white line. The instructions are vague for first time builders. Good luck.
