Today I laminated the cabin roof and foredeck of the port half of the hull.
I weighed the glass beforehand @ 1775gm and the carbon uni used @ 100gm. So you would expect to use around 1900gm of resin. I managed to wet out the laminate with around 1900gm of resin but by the tine I'd properly wet out the peel ply I had used 2500gms of resin. However the peel ply tends to show any dry areas in the laminate beneath and correction requires more resin. The vacuum and absorption fabric help to correct any areas where there is excess resin.
IT is currently under a vacuum of 25 inches of mercury and with the vacuum pump only coming on for 20 secs every 30mins to maintain the vacuum, leaving the pump on overnight is not a problem.
