Re: Question for Jacques_Stringer encapsulation

Epoxy coating is sufficient. Apply a generous coating of epoxy and you will be fine. If the tanks width use the full width between stringers, that means, if the tank is wider than the space between cleats, you have two solutions: either omit the inside cleat or install the cleat after the tank. A cl...

Re: GV15 weight

Correct but I calculate the hull weight by surface, not by the number of sheets. Then I use the same areas to calculate the fiberglass and resin and finally add the tabbing. Since there is waste in plywood, glass and resin, the total weight of the supplies (BOM) will be higher than the finished hull...

Re: Corsair 13 in Metairie LA

Install them on backing plates. The backing plates are made of scarp plywood.
