Where to lap the cloth

Post by Thompson » Thu May 04, 2017 10:15 am

Getting close to fiberglassing my Malahini. I was planning to lap at the keel and let it hang to the sheer. I know no sharp edges. I have about 1/4" radius. Thanks

That sounds good if your cloth is wide enough to go all the way to the sheer. I ended up lapping at the keel and the chines.
