well, this is my first post. I'm trying to build a D5 here at San Fernando, Cádiz, Spain
I'm having some issues gathering the materials, mostly because some of them are difficult to find (for instance, it's been a pain finding the biaxial tape, so finally I'll buy biaxial cloth and make some stripes of if).
One of this problem raises with the wood flour. I want to use it as filler for the fillets (also want to stay in a budget). There is only one manufacturer of this in Spain and they make two main prdoucts: One of them is talc-like stuff (ver, very fine powder) and the other is a coarser material.
First I need to know the grit size of the wood flour so I could choose the proper product from this guys. Could you give some directions on this?
Regarding to fiberglass, etc., I finally found 340 g/m2 (10 ounces/sq yard) biaxial cloth, so as I told you before I'm going to get 5 meters of it and cut stripes 5 inches wide so I'll get about 50 meters of it. But regarding the fiberglass for the fiberglassed bottom, the building instruction say:
But the 100 gr/m2 refers to the dynelm isn't it? Because I can't get any dynel stuff, so I'll use fiberglass and in that case, which fiberglass should I use? Also 100 g/m2 ~3 ounces? What If I can get 6 or 9 ounces?- Fiberglassed bottom: cover the bottom (and sides?) with the fiberglass or Dynel cloth, 4 oz.
(100gr), before installing the skeg. The fabric should cover the chine with a 2" (5cm) overlap.
Thank you very much, all the best,
