When to add stern strip

Posted by Mike D on May 30, 2005

The second coat (first fill coat?) of epoxy went onto the WR18 hull glass this morning. The stern is going to need a strip to cover the edge where the dart didn't quite work. I am planning on trying a bias cut strip per shop notes.

I have two things I could use a little (OK, a lot) help on. 1) should the strip go on before the rest of the fill coats? 2)How in the world do the smart builders handle bias cut glass cloth without turning it into a frayed mess? The frayed mess I can do very well.

Thanks in advance, MD
