Question

Is the $8.65 /yard for a running piece 50" wide and 36"(1 yard) long or is it for a square yard? A 3' piece of 50" fabric is actually 1.31 square yards would then cost $11.33 per square yard. Could someone please clarify? Thanks

I'm not sure. I bought this small piece to do some small fiberglass patching. I suggest that you ask the Jamestown staff who would have a clerar answer for you. Dave.

Answer

This is sold by the linear yard at 50" wide at $8.63 per yard, so three yards would be $25.89.

Question

I'm rebuilding the transom on my 1975 SeaCraft SF20 center console. I removed the old transom from the outside and the old skin is unusable. Approximately how many layers and how much resin will I need to rebuild the outer skin? The original was approx 1/4" thick. The transom is 80" wide. Thanks

Top Answer

Biaxial Fabric with mat backing. Fabric Weight = 24 oz. (per square yard). Single layer thickness = .042" (average of multiple layers applied using hand layup method). To build up 1/4" of biaxial cloth with mat backing, you would need approximately 6 layers. (.042" x 6 = .252 or approximately 1/4"). One square yard of 17 oz. biaxial cloth needs 51 oz. (17 oz. x 3) of mixed epoxy for wet out.

Question

I am replacing the transom on a 17' Aquasport, I plan to bond ply to the inside of the transom which remains, then do lay ups of 17 oz followed by i2 oz and some lighter cloth to finish. the total would be 1/4 inch, and it will wrap around the top, which I'm thinking I would need to grind a taper into the new lay up and use a light cloth to cap the transom.,Any suggestions for lay up schedule, cloth weight & quantity, epoxy resin quantity?

Asked on 08/30/2017 by Pelagic from Chester, Ct

Top Answer

That sounds fine, you will need a gallon kit of resin. You can do all your layups at once. I would cover it after all the layers with peel-ply release fabric that will leave a smooth finish. Taper the existing edge areas so you can overlap the cloth to tab it in so when you fill and sand it will be even with the existing fiberglass.

Question

I was considering using three layers of 6 oz biaxial to wrap a new plywood core rudder for a 24' sailboat since I believed the 6 oz would be easier to work around the rounded edges of the 1 1/2" thick rudder. Will I have trouble if go with 17 oz biaxial instead?

Asked on 04/19/2017 by Danny from FL

Top Answer

The woven cloth will be much easier to wrap around a 1 1/2" radius than the biaxial cloth. If you wet the biaxial out first it will make the bend easier.
