Glassing bow and stern MC

Posted by Jon T on Aug 13, 2004

I am getting ready to glass the hull of my MC 16.5. The manuel says "When the epoxy becomes rubbery, no longer sticky to the touch trim the overlap". The next step is to reinforce the bow and stern with a strip of glass tape.

My question is when to do the reinforcing? It seem like you would want to sand the main layer of epoxy/glass smooth before applying, is this right?

Thanks, Jon T
