Questions about boat repairs with our resins and fiberglass: hull patches, transoms and stringers, foam, rot etc.
Progress update. Last week I got my rigging tube(s) installed in the starboard stringer, and got the stringers tabbed in. I have foam and additional resin showing up this week. My plan is to fill all the stringers up with foam, add another layer of 1708 over them for my piece of mind, top them with resin coated 3/4" cedar planks, and maybe top the planks with a layer of 17oz as well.
Hey Hey, stringers are done! Filled them up with foam, topped them with 3/4" sanded cedar pickets, and glassed with 1708 to finish them out. They feel good and strong. Bought some 1/2" ply today for the deck at Houston Hardwoods, love going there, what a place. Was looking over their price sheet and saw "Fuma", cheaper marine ply I've never noticed before. Checked it out and decided to give it a try. Seems like good plywood to me, same amount of layers as Hydrotech, outer skin looks like Okoume, see how it goes! If weather stays like this might get some good progress over the next few weeks. Thanks for following!
