Re: 1991 stratos bass boat restoration.

I am using a laminating roller. I have the two center stringers glued in and one side of each taped with 2 layers 0f 12oz biax and one layer of 1708. If taking the time to get everything smooth it is going much better. But getting time to work on the boat is hurting me, It's not worth it to start fo...

Re: 1991 stratos bass boat restoration.

thanks fitz, I was getting worried that I was gonna have to grind it all back out. I agree with you that I should have had it smoother before I started, just didn't know how good it needed to be.

Re: 1991 stratos bass boat restoration.

how bad does that hurt the strength of the glass. I'm thinking it was a combination of both. I'm doing better but should the resin be smooth on top of the cloth? so far mine hasnt been. I can still feel the cloth but they are coated in resin. Make sense

Re: 1991 stratos bass boat restoration.

How in the world do I keep the little white spots out from under 1708 cloth? I get it looking all nice then turn my head and BAM! there they are.

Re: 1991 stratos bass boat restoration.

The old stiffeners had a layer of mat and 2 layers of roven cloth. I assume that 2 or 3 layers of biaxial will be as strong or stronger. Correct me if I'm wrong

Re: 1991 stratos bass boat restoration.

I have my hull stiffeners glued in the hull and I assume that I need to glass all of them in before I add stringers. I'm thinking that my next step is to sand glue and wipe with acetone. Coat stiffeners with epoxy, add fillets, then tab with 1 layer of 12 oz cloth then 1 or 2 layers of 1708. Is this...

Re: 1991 stratos bass boat restoration.

This is the starboard side after sanding and removing the hull stiffner http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/88100/photo_2.JPG This location is where the bilge pumps are mounted, I removed plywood to check for water, everything looks ok. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/88100/photo_1...

Re: 1991 stratos bass boat restoration.

The current hull stiffeners are 1/2" thick plywood that is 1.5" wide at bottom and 3/4" wide at top. Sides are cut at a 45 degree angle. Do you think I will have a problem using 1708 over this? There were bubbles on top of them in spots when I tore it apart.
