LM18 Low Sheer Round Chine

What are the pros and cons of glassing the top of the deck versus just truck liner or paint? We are taking non-skid and epoxy coated deck.

What does the fiberglass do?

4 or 6 oz. is in the plans if you want to cover the deck, but adds weight.

Re: MarineEpoxy Tropical Slow Cure Times?

Jeff,

Is this listed anywhere? I was thinking this resin would help with Peel Ply, more time to lay out.

Re: FS18 Straight Sheer, Round Chine

Thank you everyone for the positive feedback!!! Today I finished up the epoxy glue welds in between the zip ties. Next I will cut out the zip ties and finish off the fillets.

Re: LM18 build in DeLand

Just going to use the Peel Ply on the black dotted area of the hull, that is just the sides. Bottom will have the BBC graphite/epoxy mix. The hull will be painted Gloss Lite Sand.

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

Damn nice job!!!

I rolled my boat out into the sun and let it heat up, then poured, the foam was in the house getting cool. I think I cut the tops off a few days later. Somewhere someone said wait a day of two.
