Re: Hughes 40 - Cored Hull ?

Jim: I should have noted in my response that stripping the hull and sealing the vertical keel joint were not related; the hull stripping was done for other reasons; my horizontal joints never were a problem but I used the same Gluvit stuff there just in case. The vertical joint really bothered me and it could be sealed using the Gluvit and fiberglass tape very easily.
I was impressed that the Interlux barrier held up well over it, but even if it did not, the Gluvit also is an epoxy barrier. Best of luck with the Hughes.
