Re: XF 20 Build

White oak is what boat builders use . Red oak because of the grain structure soaks up a ton of water .
If you cover it with glass and epoxy i guess it would be alright but why take a chance when there are
better options out there .

Re: V12 - Divinycell vs Plywood

In small boats there would be no weight advantage and would cost more to build " more epoxy and glass ".
In bigger boats you would see a much bigger weight advantage but it still costs more to build and some
people do not like wood.

Makes it real easy to load , pull out of can , twist the bag to get air out , then seal it and cut tip off corner and away you go. Eric the we...

Re: Eric's C21

I know how you feel . I did mine by wetting out on a wet out table then rolled them on a cardboard tube and unrolled on the stringer. I used 1 oz of epoxy for every foot of 12 oz tape , you can use a little less as you go because of what you squeeze out with the spreader and soak it up with the next...
