So if I built a couple foam core
GRP hulls, and a bridge deck
separately. How would I put them together? What do the big manufacturers do? Surely they aren't using a 4,000sqft vacuum bag to do bottom all at once?
I don't have any experience with fiberglass
, but I ran across something that said after the resin cures (24-36 hours), additional cloths would only "mechanically bond" and be a weaker bond. But wouldn't the transition to the bridge be one of the highest stress points on a cat?
I've seen Schionning (I think) suggest that kits (hull, bridge, transom) are joined with wood beams. If you've spent all this money
on a divinycell, hexalite, foam-core, etc hulls, doesn't that seem like a really painful compromise?
Thanks. Just trying to pick this stuff up where I can.
