Pour foam is not available in Turkey
, I can locate closed cell aerosol polyurethane
foam that I will go with. I've cut a window out of the rudder (armature is glassed to one side of the rudder and appears sound). Questions, do I spray in foam through the large window, and then level the foam. Or close up the window and inject the foam through sprue holes?
What sort of layup
schedule would be good to remake the 5mm that was gel planed off?
I can access 300gsm and 600gsm plain weave cloth. Should I search for bi-axial cloth? Orient the fibres vertically?
How many layers (approx) would make up 5mm?
Thanks for all the help.
I've also found an old style yard in Bozburun which I can haul out
next winter for E1400 for 6 months. Its on old time skips, and I'll be nestled in between huge 200ft Gulets, but its affordable. I've got some-one who has a gel plane and can grind offf the gel coat, so next winter (Oct), I'll grind off the old gelcoat
, see if I need to double grind, and then let the hull
dry over winter (I know its not the ideal time, but its the only time I can get the boat drying for 6 months?). Should I tent the boat? or does that increase the relative humidity?
I can then refinish the boat February 2014, and still get in the cruising season 2013.
