These are the same products we use in the Devlin Boat shop, and I added the glassing schedule (shown below) I would use if I were to build one. I hope this makes this part of your supplies purchase easier. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions 360-790-0577


Suggested Glassing Schedule

Click Thumbnail to See Larger Pic

All interior joints get a glass schedule of one layer 4” Biax (12oz.) two layers 6” Biax (12oz) and two layers 8” cloth (6oz) The entire hull, decks and cockpit sole get a layer of 6oz cloth with a 4” strip also added to all exterior joints.

I prefer to cut the 4” and 8” glass strips off of the 50” roll instead of using the pre-cut rolls. To cut the strips use a piece of Ό” scrap plywood the desired width (4” and 8”), lay it at the edge off the roll and cut with a razor blade. Use some clean plywood as your cutting surface. The easiest way to sheathe the hull is to glass from sheer to shear or centerline to sheer 50” at a time.

-OR-(2) 4’ x 20’ ½” plywood for two hull bottom each with leftover plywood used for side decks,
