How to Attach Shelves to a Fiberglass Hull?
So I've got a capacious lazarette. It's big enough for a few guys to sit down and play poker. What I'd like to do is put in a bunch of shelves to better use the space. What's stopping me is I don't know how best to build shelves into a fiberglass hull. I'm used to wood, which is pretty straightforward. Should I glass in a 2x4 and use that to anchor the shelves to? Should I bolt, screw or othewise put holes in my hull ? Should I build free-standing shelves and then only attach them at one or two points?
I think glassing in must be the solution. Can one just slap epoxy and glass tape on a 2x4 and expect it to have strength bonded to the hull?
I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
