Default Steve1 or Sharkey or any boat builders

Hey guys I glassed on my fairing today. I had a question as to if one layer of DB is enough to hold it in place. I used one piece up and over the top and back down the sides. Only a couple of small air bubbles at a few of the corners (not sure if I should just leave them or go back and grind them off and fill them in???).

I want to make sure that this thing does not break apart. It is made of NIDA Core with a Marine Mahogony cap so that I can screw things in if needed. This is the link to what it looked like as of a day ago http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/s...702#post625702

Thanks for any input.
Jon

Audio sounds fine to me just on the bond area and up a couple inches I would of used a second Piece the DB was the correct choice just when corners are involved;

IE deck-Fairing there is a load condition at the transition we call a stress riser..

I usually just double the Laminate in that area.

Jon, have you gone ahead and scrapped 2003? Not ribbing ya, just wondering if you're going to go ahead and take this year to do everything.

Steve thanks for the info. I will use some DB tape and double up those areas. All of the outside transitions for the deck to the side are straite it is only the inside front of the fairing that has a 90 degree bend there. I am going to run down to the shop now and take a few shots and post them up in a few for some added advice. The insides of the corners I did double up with the DB. I also used Cavasyle (sp) to radius my inside turns.

Jon

Cuda I hope to be in the water this year still. Lucky for me my bro is a body guy and he said he will be able to fair this thing out quickly. I hope so. Then prime with the durratech and paint with the gell.

Sorry for the late reply Jon. I have been getting my boat ready for the Special Olympic kids tomorrow at the NJPPC event called Shore Dreams For Kids.
I seem to agree with Steve. But I would also like to know what type of resin you are using being that will also play a big part in any decision. Vinyl or Epoxy the lay up you have right now should be just fine. Anything less than that, double up on the material everywhere.....or else -->
