Not sure if anyone is still viewing this thread, but I finally got around to this terrible, terrible task. After a few days of fun with chisel and prybars, followed by a delightful 10 hours with the flap wheel
, I am ready to put the new piece back in. So, I am going to butt joint the new ply to the old, and fiberglass
those together, then with West System 105/205 and 6oz cloth, I am going to tab 8", 6", 4" in that order the whole length of where the bulkhead meets the hull
. (Leaving, of course, the space between hull
and bulkhead). Stop me before it's too late if there is anything wrong with my plan! I have read so many differing views regarding the mat/cloth etc, I bought both but am going with just straight cloth.
