fiberglass & epoxy finishing

Postby atchi » Tue Dec 09, 2008 3:07 am

Hi all; I just finished shaping my board using a600 corecell foam and i'm debating how many layers of cloth to add to the board. I'm using 6oz fiberglass cloth & epoxy.

The board is a 129 X 39 with a fairly flat rocker and im looking to make it strong.

any suggestions will help. cheers!!!!

3 layers on each side would be suffeciant, put 4 on the bottom if you want to stiffen it up a bit.
