Biaxial tape vs woven?

For an HC14, the plans specify "9 oz, 4" wide woven tape". The page describing the epoxy and fiberglass kit says "6 oz, 6" wide biaxial tape". https://bateau.com/proddetail.php?prod=HC14_E I'm planning on using 6 oz woven because I already have it, that's going to be fine, right? It's a canoe, it's ...

Re: Weight durability trade off of additional glassing on a canoe?

Ahhh, yeah for some reason the fact that the tape will cover more than just a 1 dimensional line didn't really occur to me. :oops: The upper and chine panels are ~8 and 3/8" for most of their length, and the bottom is 17" at it's widest. So if I use 6" tape that will leave <3" in the middle. The bot...

Re: Weight durability trade off of additional glassing on a canoe?

No I will be glassing all the seams, inside and out, as the plans specify. I'm only debating additional glassing.

Good call on the grip map/coating.

Weight durability trade off of additional glassing on a canoe?

I'm building an HC14, and I'm not sure if I want to glass the flat bottom, and/or chine panels, and possibly the inside of them. I'm aware that it adds weight, and the plans say that glassing the bottom of the flat bottom panel adds ~6 lbs. So I can extrapolate from that that glassing the inside wou...

Re: Seeking advice on which boat to build

Well I bought plans for the double chine 14' canoe. I probably won't start on it until next month tho. I'm busy and I have to move stuff around to make space for it. Thanks for your input, even tho it might look like I just ignored you >.< I'm going with some sort of marine grade plywood, but I don'...

Re: Seeking advice on which boat to build

- I would build it with home depot plywood. 1/4" birch at $29 a sheet 8O 8O 8O Don't do it! The plywood from here will give you a quality boat that will last and will ensure you enjoy the build. Start with bargain building materials, you will end up with a junk boat! :help: The plywood will only be...

Re: Seeking advice on which boat to build

Another bit in favor of the canoe options, is that Oklahoma laws require all boats to be registered - except for canoes and kayaks. With no special regulations on what constitutes a canoe or a kayak. I'm considering going for the HC14, because it would be a way for me to get my feet wet with epoxy/p...
