Looking for a bit of advice again.
scenario: Purchased a boat and the Aft cabin
ceiling & sides had been stripped and not remade - rest of the boat great but Aft cabin
needs all the headlining put back in, the aft cabin roof is the width of the boat but has the cockpit
floor sunken into it so a little like looking at half an H shape that needs covered
Boat is a 37ft GRP Sloop
with a aft cockpit
age about 1984 ish.
I have attached wood slats to the underneath of the fibreglass to strengthen the cockpit area as it was flexing a bit which has actually worked well.
I understand I probably now need to make some panels
out of ply wood to strengthen it further and attach these to the wood slats i have added.
My confusion is.... how do i do the corners?... how do I get a smooth corner around the internal base of the cockpit? I would rather be able to remove the paneling if required incase of any leaks
etc.. so was keen on putting the plywood
paneling up with velcro.. but when I have corners my plywood
isn't going to bend around them. i would rather not make up fibreglass corners to fit in as this sounds an awful lot of work and I don't have a workshop on or near the yacht and have never really worked with fibreglass before either..
(never panelled out a boat cabin before either so there is a first for everything)
Ive looked over the internet
a bit but haven't found anything really relevant to what i need, you tube, google
What are your views on using Kitchen lyno attached to plywood?? - this could make a nice corner i belive if i put the plywood up with velcro and then attached white lyno to the plywood with glue all over- I'm thinking then i can take it all down if required.. Any views?? - If I'm not making myself clear just say and I will try and explain further.
Thanks for any views..
