Re: Glass butt joint?
Posted by Charlie on Jan 16, 2007
There is a learning curve to scarf jointing. The time to learn is not when you are building a boat. Get some cheap ¼" ply, cut it into strips and do some practice pieces. Once you know the procedure you can scarf almost anything. I even built a pirogue out of a ply that only came in half sheets. The total of all the scarfs was 12 feet.I did it as an experiment but, wouldn't do it again.
