Re: ? for MC16.5 Builders
Posted by Mark Camp on Jul 17, 2004
I don't know about the MC. However, this morning I glassed the hull of John's Sharpie, and the BOM, like yours, spec'ed a glass width too narrow to span the hull in a single piece; the instructions said to cover half the hull at a time, with an overlap down the keel line.
It was harder to do this way than a single width would have been, and I don't much care for the way it came out. So your idea of buying sufficient width for a single span sounds better to me.
