Jacques, Why would the panels sag between the molds on a full male mold with stringers? I want to use corecell and I could shoot a few raptors into the core on stringers to hold the shape. Then, I could also shoot a few raptors into the fabric if you think it'd move on me after wetting out. The boat is designed with female mold; to do flat panel would require more work than building a skeleton I think.jacquesmm wrote: ↑Fri Feb 24, 2017 11:07 amCorrect. It is a method we use on the foam sandwich versions of some of my designs.
For a 32' cat with almost flat panels, you should not have any problems.
Derek Kelsall does that for many designs.
Do not try without the single skin: the panels would sag between the molds.
What we do is layup one layer of glass on the outside and when assembled, add the specified layers up to the final lamination schedule. It allows you overlap the layers over the other panels and create string seams that way.
I have files and notes about and plan to publish later this year.
Do you foresee any problems? I would use peelply.
