Looking for advice for the best method to go about relaminating this deck.
What would be the best material to use for a backup molder?
Should I do the lamination from the outside or the inside? Laminating from the inside ,I think, would mean flipping the hull upside down?
The hull thickness is only 1/8". What would be the best laminate schedule to use? I was thinking of doing it from the out side and attaching the molder to the underside and using a schedule of mat, roving cloth,finnishing with two layers of matt, because I know there will be a fair amount of sanding to get the deck straight and the plan is to regell the boat instead of paint. Once the molder was removed, I was thinking of laying up another layer of mat and cloth on the entire underside of the deck for a little extra stiffining support.
Should I include a core material ,such as a thin plywood for deck strength? Did eliminator use wood in the 19 Daytonas deck at all? How would coremat work for stenghening the deck?
I am just looking for advice, on the best approach to this ,from the fiberglass experts out there.
Here is a pic of what I am working with. Thanks.... Hal
