Dabs of hot glue from your hot glue gun to hold in place while the gorilla glue cures.

Very nice.
Thanks Caleb.... in the past we've used clear cedar battens, nice and light and finishes up almost teak colour with the right finish.. but it's become hard to find. In this case I cheaped out and used regular fir/hem and played around with stain to get the colour right. It's not a high visibility area and it's stood up fine, and looks OK I think.

Re: attaching wood furring strips to inside of hull

Faster, I am APPALLED! Don't you know you can't use fir in a marine environment?!?! It has to be teak or mahogany, or maybe white oak. I'm sorry, you're just going to have to rip out that beautiful work and start again, I don't care how long it has been there.

OMG, gorilla glue!!!! really non-marine.

And, better sit down for this one, for the table top, are you ready?

Re: attaching wood furring strips to inside of hull

That's one of the nicest things I've been called online!

I've only owned THIS boat for a month; I did have another one. Had that for a whole year. That makes me an expert, right?

Re: attaching wood furring strips to inside of hull

If I could get a nice chunk of Cypress, say FAS, 3"x10" x 8 foot, it would soon be the boom gallows.

Probably a silly question, but do you have a brand name or is this something off the shelf at West Marine?

Thanks much

boz86,

There are a lot of sources and lots of different vinyl esters. I used to buy Dow 8086 but I have to buy 5 gallons at a time. I keep a gallon or two of 700 Vinyl Ester Resin from US Composites, on my shelf. I need to order some right now. MEKP is the catalyst. I also keep a couple of W.E.S.T. gallon kits and use them both for various things. I keep some polyester for less critical things like laying up a thick backing plate. It is less expensive for stuff like that. U.S. Composites is a convenient source. A selection of resins, foams and fabrics as well as misc. supplies. Good service, too.

Polyester Resins

This is their page that includes vinyl ester.

Except for epoxy I don't buy resins off the shelf. Age is a factor for promoted resins and both polyesters and vinyl esters are promoted. U.S. Composites promotes their resins fresh for delivery.

There are no silly questions. Glad to help.
