I think I happen to have enough surplus materials to make a cradle for the main hull so thought I'd just give it a go.
First I covered the hull with 3 layers of plastic and one layer of vacuum film. I don't want to damage the paint.
Then 2 layers of a fairly heavy triaxial glass. I was given a couple rolls of this stuff a few years back along with some really out of date epoxy.
But it is only a cradle- wouldn't use the ood epoxy in the boat itself.
I also happen to have several sheets of 3.5mm pacific maple marine ply. So here s a couple of pics of the work to date.
The ribs will be trimmed back by up to 6 inched each side and there is more timber to be glued in place length ways along the keel and sides to make more of a frame.
The timber will be acting as a high density core and it will all have at least 2 layers of the triaxial glass over it.
Frames will also go under the ribs and be bolted to gal angle that is then bolted to the trailer.
