Re: New Bulkhead & Interior Framing

It sounds like wood stiffeners, ribs, & stringers laminated to 3/4" thickness are the tried & true method. I'll do the initial placement with contact cement, then 2/3 layers of glass.

Re: New Bulkhead & Interior Framing

So you're saying that tabbed wood is the only way to go for ribs?

There are no deck/hull fasteners, it appears the deck and hull were glassed together at the factory.

Re: New Bulkhead & Interior Framing

Would you predrill for the fasteners?

ABS is easier to get in our region, do you see a problem using that?

I'm assuming I should use 1" Schedule 40 cut in half?

Thanks

Re: New Bulkhead & Interior Framing

The 4 stringers (2 each side) do look rectangular, but up close when ground-out, they are about 2.5" wide x 3/4" thick, and either edge was chamfered at 45 degrees before glassing.

Re: New Bulkhead & Interior Framing

For the ribs and stringers, I been wondering about using Trex/Composite Decking, ripped, thinned, and cut to size.

Crazy Idea?

Would the epoxy even stick on the ribs for the tabbing?

New Bulkheads & Interior Framing

The interior is gutted, bulkheads are out, and on the home stretch with the grinder.

Re: BoatUS membership worth it?

Nope, they won't do squat - we've already consulted them on boat and tow insurance a year or so ago - we're on our own up here.

Re: Would a sailboat be a good place to be

Newbie here with a few quick questions.

Would a solo non-stop unassisted circumnavigation on a sailboat be a good way to avoid the zombies?

If so, I'm pretty sure I want to use this approach.

Re: training for solo non-stop circumnav

Hey, OP, the bottom line, if you attempt your dream, you might DIE.

I identify with the OP, and with what I know of Matt, by my own life.

I moved to the Alaska Bush 10 years ago, 39 years old,...

Re: training for solo non-stop circumnav

You need to talk a look at the site of Matt Rutherford, who did a solo non-stop circumnavigation of North & South America (~26K Miles, I believe), about a year or so ago.

Here's the website with...

I'm real friendly with 2 of the 3 already; throw-in a Tyvec suit and I'm already there from past days spent floor finishing.

Obviously I need to learn more about what I'm asking.

It sounds like I simply want to fair with thickened epoxy first, then paint - gelcoat is unnecessary.

Re: Anchoring for long term or in unprotected waters

A little off topic, sorry.

What's the rule of thumb for anchor rode length? I have a 26' that I'm redoing, with a 5'10" draft. I know the former owners did some offshore stuff and a passage or...
