I should have mentioned that they’d be glassed. Thanks for tip. I will round before gluing down. Does placement as well as 8’ length look ok?
It does, although I think optimum is 10-12 inches from the transom for water flow.

Type of cloth best for covering strakes and spray rails?

I glued pre-routed strakes in place using braces to ceiling joists. I then filleted joints and covered in 12 oz tape. I plan on gluing on spray rails using temporary screws.

What’s the best material for covering spray rails? I’ll need to fill a few soft spots on strakes where cloth is not solidly against the wood. On hand I have 6 inch wide 12 oz tape, 12 oz cloth and 4 inch 6 oz tape on hand. I don’t think the 4 inch tape will be wide enough for the rails.

Thanks for your advice in advance.

I wanted mine to be pretty abrasion resistant. So I overlapped two layers of 12oz tape 6" wide.

Temporarily fit the spray rails. Will glue in place and fillet tomorrow.

Thanks Salty. A general question for all: should I apply neat epoxy to the edges of taped and overlapped seams before beginning fairing with blended filler mix? Some edge fibers were loosened up with the initial sanding. Strakes and splash rails have been glassed. When I finish sanding I think I’m ready to start fairing. I’m finished with right half of bottom panels in this pick.

It sounds like you could answer this question for yourself! If your first coat of fairing is a thin coat of epoxy/woodflour to fill the weave, then that should suffice to glue down those loose fibers in the same process.

Was thinking that way just wanting confirmation. Hate to think about getting a later of something down and finding out later otherwise. I’ll be using BBC blended filler.

Thanks
