Re: Thingee strips for st
Posted by Terry Mcadams on Sep 13, 2004
I usually add one additionl layer of bias-cut 6 oz. cloth to the stem. One can get impacts in these area on, or to either side of, the rub strips on occassion, and this give a bit of extra protection and resistance to cracking..
I add the strips after the hull is painted. Easier than trying to paint around them when you're hurrying to get the paint on and tipped before the paint starts to set. Applying them is easy, and you can just wipe off the excess epoxy with vinegar.
