Re: Panga 20 Build

If I'm using a longboard, I think it would be easier to fair to a certain point then put the frames in. The tape on the frames will be 6 oz woven and I'll use peel ply on those. After that, there would be little left to fair.

Re: Panga 20 Build

I'm wondering if I should put a couple of fairing coats on the gunnels before I tape in the frames. Should make it easier to fair the frames in.

Re: Panga 20 Build

Absolutely. They are glued down and ready to fillet and tape.

Re: Sharkbait PG20

It definitely takes longer to apply, but the time it saves in sanding is worth it. I've only used it on filets and biaxial tape.

Re: Question for Designer- Panga 20

So no issues with using the 6 oz 4" wide tape above the sole?

Question for Designer- Panga 20

I bought the epoxy kit last year that came with 6 ounce 4" woven tape. I just noticed the plans call for 9 ounce 4" tape for anything above the sole. Is this a typo? Maybe I'm missing something.

Re: Panga 20 Build

I forgot to epoxy some bolts for the tank under the sole where the tank sits. I had to build a platform with the bolts epoxied under and through.

I also got one of the soles glued in.

Re: Sharkbait PG20

Glassing them adds a lot of time. Using southern yellow pine on mine gave me no choice other to glass them. I think I really spent more time fairing the skeg and spray rails than I did the hull. It's your choice. If I were to make the decision again, I would have used a harder wood as Dan Smullen did.
