Re: New Bulkhead & Interior Framing

If it's only light interior, unstressed items attached to the new parts, the PVC would be great but if you're attaching any stressed exterior hardware like grab rails or bases for blocks, solid glass...

Re: New Bulkhead & Interior Framing

I wouldn't pre drill. You can use anything that wont get melted by the resin. I've seen cardboard mailing tube used as a former. The advantage to using 1/2 a plastic tube is that screws can get a...

Re: New Bulkhead & Interior Framing

If there are any pieces of hardware screwed into it, I'd glass those spots solid. That would be much stronger and keep water from eventually getting in. Neither foam nor PVC will hold screws with...

Re: New Bulkhead & Interior Framing

If you cut the PVC in 1/2 lengthwise it gets very limber - hot melt glue will tack it in place

Re: New Bulkhead & Interior Framing

Crazy idea - not even particularly cheap. Use epoxy coated ply and do a good job of tabbing it in.

For ribs, just use foam or PVC tube or even cardboard tube as formers and laminate glass over...

Re: New Bulkhead & Interior Framing

I agree, however not on things like bulkheads and chainplates...I would never say go undersize unless you are using materials that are known to be stronger

Re: New Bulkhead & Interior Framing

3/4" bulkheads would be excessive on a boat that size. 1/2" is plenty. Triple tabbing of 1708 biaxial would be super strong - double tabbing would be plenty good.

Don't fall into the amateurs trap...

Re: New Bulkhead & Interior Framing

Some pix would help. There's no way to venture any advice on structural elements without some kind of picture or specs. Those temps are great for epoxy work. I wouldn't use fast or slow hardener...

Re: Gelcoat Hull Interior?

After years of painting I am going back to gelcoat for bilges and inside hull. Every paint I have used eventually flakes causing issue with bilge pumps. I like a heavy coat of white gel. Use gel with...

Re: Flush Mount Ventilators

I just replaced my dorades with Nicro Day Night Plus solar vents. They run all the time and move a lot of air. They can be shut off, and switched from intake to exhaust easily. Ideally you have two,...

I will be adding some Dorades to my sprite.. and a couple of mushroom vents on the aft deck.

I think properly built and oriented, they should fit right up against the front of the cabin and not...

Re: Flush Mount Ventilators

Since you precluded the use of solar, these will have the benefit of being closeable.. do your current cowls have proper boxes? or do you have to remove them and install a deck plate to close things...

Re: Flush Mount Ventilators

I'd start by going with the solar fan. They work, even when there's no breeze, so that going below can be tolerable on even the hottest days. We've had ours for 12 years, and have had to replace the...

Re: That's a pretty cheap boat heater!

There are on demand units small enough for boats but they all need electric to operate. Then also there's the marine "code" that most if any don't qualify for.

Re: That's a pretty cheap boat heater!
