FS17

Post by fishgitr » Mon May 20, 2019 2:44 pm

Due to my epoxy allergy..


What would the layup schedule be for the FS17 with divinycell/ vinylester? Divinycell thickness?

Thanks

Same as what it will be for epoxy-foam sandwich BUT I am not ready to work on the conversion of that one. I want to put the shop manual out first.
Email me and I will give you some scantlings. Count on using more than twice the amount of glass and resin than for the plywood-epoxy version.

No, that's next week. I will be gone from the day after Memorial day until June 20th.
I will have sporadic internet access.

This project will be going on. I calculated the scantlings for Fishgtr, vinylester or epoxy does not make a big difference.
Those scantlings are not ready for publication, I want to finish the foam sandwich shop manual first. That manual should cover most of the questions people will have about foam sandwich construction for boats of that size.
