Hey all I didn't, mean that it wouldn't work on others boats. I just didn't want to be responsible for extra work on my account. I don't Remember if I glassed my rails because of Crackers advice. He has always guided us correctly. He was a boat building god. I don't know why I had repeated failures first I used 9oz then went to 12 oz. The rails seem to be fine with out glass. Maybe I'm just harder on my boat, maybe it is the fact that the boat can reach speeds of 49 miles per hour on a regular basis. That may explain it. After all if you read my thread you will know that I glassed every exposed piece of wood on my boat and filleted, taped all joints and station supports with double 12oz. I went far above the recommended glassing schedule. The only thing I think it could have been is the speed. Anyway Justin your boat looks great. Dave BUILD-ON!

If the glass delaminates from strakes or spray rails etc; it can also delaminate from the hull with the same logic as the hull is also exposed to the same speed starting with the bow. I think it has more to do with binding and/or application than glassing.

The fore part of my strakes act like spray rails and I bet the pressure on them at full chat is way more than yours. I went against guru (CL) advice and glassed my strakes.
Wow what would be the force on mine then? :P Justin I didn't glass any of my strakes and they are holding up just fine, beached the boat also regularly without any problems, just use hard wood and epoxy glue/fillet/cover them, don't over complicate stuff.

Thanks for all the advice guys, I appreciate it.
It sounds like there are as many people glassing strakes and spay rails on as there are without glass.
I think strength wise just gluing them on will be fine, but I will probably cover them in glass as I have only used a pine which won't take too much to dent them, and I have a few off cuts of glass cloth lying around.

I am planning the flip back now so I can finish the bottom.

I managed to pick up a tandem trailer in really good condition (unregistered) for $800, so I was pretty happy about that.

So once the bottom is done I'll flip it back on the trailer to finish.

Cheers
Justin

Sounds like a good trailer buy and a good plan forward Justin. :D

Any update to report on the build? I'm really interested in seeing this one completed as I'm sure others are as well!

Hey mate, thanks for your interest :)

I haven't done a lot on it lately as life just gets in the way.

But I am gearing up again to make some more headway.
