I'm in the process of building a Chesapeake 16. I've finished applying filltes and tape to the bow and stern sections. I'm ready to move on to the center / cockpit section.
Is there a good reason why I shouldn't apply the fiberglass in the cockpit area now? Also - is there a structural need for tape over the fillets if I'm applying 6oz cloth throughout the cockpit area?
BTW - I followed Lazlo's advice to tab, cure, and remove the stiches (as endorsed by Wordsmith). It worked beautifully! -- Of course, I'll let you all know if the boat falls apart after launching it!!!
