Guys,

Quick question:

Do you have to use biaxial tape on the puzzle joints or will the glue be enough strength until i glass over?

I haven't used the puzzle joints, but we've been told the joints with glue don't need tape- they'll hold until getting glassed over.

I taped mine. Mostly because I didn't know what the heck I was doing and messed them up! If you do tape them you will have a bit of fairing to do. Here's the official word from the BBC How-To section: Puzzle Joint

It depends on the boat. Some are completely glassed, in that case, no tape but some are only glassed to the waterline and for those, use tape.
