Re: bow/stern deck glass
Posted by Howard on Apr 14, 2005
the important part is to pull it smoothly over the deck...and when wetting it out...down anywhere between 1/2 to 1 inch down along the sides. no folds on the deck.
but you will simply not be able to perfectly glass around these points
a spring clamp is useful for gathering the loose cloth at the ends and ensuring it is as tight around the deck and edge as possible.
none-the-less, you will need a bit of sanding with a course sanding block immediately under the bow tip and stern/deck edge to fair in some glass that is likely to be rumpled. but make sure it is smooth on the deck itself.
