Re: Hull panel joints
Posted by Howard on Mar 15, 2005
lee's got it...
quite a bit of glass on the inside. Four layers of overlapped 9oz glass tape covered by an additional layer of 4 oz cloth. when you add it all up the internal glass is between 2 and 3 mm at the thickest part of the butt joint.
after the hull is put together, there is, of course also glass on the outside, One layer of 4oz on the side panels and two layers of 4 oz on the bottom panels.
seemed pretty bullet proof to me.. and at the same time it bent to a fair curve.
