    Default Stringer replacement

    I've spent a considerable amount of time reading through the threads about stringer replacement and have found a ton of info, so thank you to those who posted about your experience. I am going to start my own stringer replacement project and need some help. After reading, I will be ordering 17 oz biaxial glass with no backing and using epoxy resin. My question is how far do I overlap each layer? I'm going to layer usin the opposite of the west system, smallest layer first and so on. How many layers are recommended? How much resin would a novice glasser need to do a full stringer boat with 16' stringer? (Assuming I'm gonna screw up and waste some.) Do I need a different type of fabric in between layers or a different type for a finish layer? Is it best to do 1 stringer at a time or cut them both out? I should include they are being pulled for delamination not rot. I apologize for the format of the post and any typos, I'm fat fingering this from my phone. Thanks in advance Steve

    So before i go into this you are you going to be going with mutable layers of fabric using 17 oz- 1700 Bi Ax staggering each layer of fabric Small , Large , Larger , and not to mention that i am somewhat ole school believing that the more beef the better ( fabric ) which to some just might be overkill considering three layers of fabric for stringers was of the norm at a few Co's ( Skater ) that i worked for in the past with two layers most likely being sufficient for your project but that is your call .
