Deck Glass Overlap

Posted by John DeLaurier on Aug 30, 2004

When I applied the glass to the deck of my MC13 I did not do the deck 2" overlap as recommended. I mistakenly thought that it would be overly complicated to cut the glass accurately and neatly in place. Steve Miller has kindly pointed out the error of my ways, and I am throwing it out to the Forum for suggestions. I was considering of installing two inch glass tape on the deck/hull seam, but Steve correctly pointed out that tape will develop a fat side when curing, and that it would be a bugger feather. Maybe, I'm overthinking this and the overlap is not that critical, but would sure appreciate the Forum's thoughts. Thanks.
