Re: Panga 20 Build

The epoxy cured. No problem. I placed the transom a little earlier. I ran out of 2x4's so I had to temporarily brace the transom. I'll build something more substantial tomorrow. On my plywood cuts, does it matter if it's off a little. The transoms edges overlapped each other a little. I'm assuming ...

Re: Panga 20 Build

Don't know if the nesting drawings we're ever updated. It still shows the stringers that would have to be spliced. I think I misunderstood this post and thought they were supposed to be spliced. Oh well, they are cut and spliced already.

Re: Panga 20 Build

Yes, I meant fiberglass splice. The plans I have don't show an offset. They are to be fiberglass spliced. See the thread shown in the picture attached.

Re: Panga 20 Build

I cut all the stringers this evening. I'll epoxy and tape the seams tomorrow night. I should be able to keep my garage warm enough for the epoxy to cure. If I'm going to notch my stringers and frames, should I splice the stringers on one side and then splice the other two stringers on the other side...

Re: Panga 20 Build

Ill check it when I get home from work. I forgot this morning. Its probably cured by now. It was above 60 for most of the night last night and my garage was warmer. When I was looking at the curing chart, I thought it was hours not minutes.

Re: Panga 20 Build

My question is, if it dips below, does it stop curing. Will it start to cure again if it is 60 and above?

Re: Panga 20 Build

I hope I'm stirring enough. I put 2 parts resin in one cup then 1 part hardener in another. I pour the resin from one cup to the other then stir for a minute. I then pour that cup back to the other cup and stir for another minute. I do the same another 2 times. Might be a little overkill.
