Raw 1708 is 0.030"

If you add zero for epoxy and air, 9 layers is 0.270".

Of course, resin and air adds some.

My beam sockets built with vac are 3 layers and come in at 0.100, or 0.033" each.

The no vac version is 3 layers and 0.125" or 0.042.

If you combine
Vac 3 0.100
6 no vac 0.250

You get 0.350 or right near 3/8".

By the way, I run the consolidation roller religiously between layers. This reduces air infill and also the thickness of the laminates.

Thanks FG! That makes perfect sense now. Of course with my entry level epoxy skills mine would probably turn out over 1/2" but I hope to get better over time.

This has been a very exciting build to follow and it is getting more exciting as you fill in details as you go along. I read the write-up on the smaller skoota but it is nothing close to your monster of a boat! Thanks for taking the time to explain things.

What were you going to use the XPS for a cooler :?: Xps has no sear strength as stated in another thread.
Novi 23 finally launched !

Yes. Delam failure. It was a test, sort of...

Bottom of livewell; just some xtra insulation and to reduce the gallons in the well. I have been told that xps won't delam easy if you don't rough it up. That theory has been disproven here.

I am going to rough it up with 36 grit and powergrab it to the base. There is no need for the glass really.

But for those of you wanting to use xps; rough it up with 36 grit floor paper and hotcoat it with cabosil n epoxy. It works much better.

Looks really good from the angle you took the picture but how did it fit?

The guy standing under the beam gives an idea how big that boat is!
