draping fiberglass

Posted by Kurt Freewald on Aug 22, 2005


Just draped the fiberglass on the outside of the hull. When it smooths out fine until i get to the tip of the bow and stern then there is a fold left over. And when i try to smooth it out it begins to leave a fold in the fiberglass along the sides. Im afraid if i begin to put the epoxy on I will have to deal with this wrinkle/fold when its wet. . I think its because the fiberglass is square and the boat comes to a point. Well hope im explaining this clearly. does anyone have tips or ideas of the best way to drape and smooth out the fiberglass on the hull??

any help would be really appreciated, Thanks, Kurt
