dynel cloth

Post by stewkim » Sun Jul 18, 2010 7:12 pm

Hi there everyone,



We are just about to start the glassing of our first hull and in the instructions it mentions "Dynel Cloth" for the keel and the rudder. When do we put this on? And how long do we have after the glassing to put it on?



Any help is much appreciated.



Thanks

:) Kim and Stewart

Hi Kim & Stewart, my method. Firstly I had 300mm wide strips of 200g glass cut and rolled up and 200mm wide strips of dynel cut and rolled up, these go from the sheer at the bow to the mini keel then onto the bow. You would have overlapped the glass at the keelson by 200mm now layup the 300mm wide glass then follow with the 200mm dynel, this material is an abrasion resistant fabric. When this is completed I sanded back the ridges with a 7 inch disc sander. Now it is time to bog and sand again, there easy :x

PS if you have already glassed then just sand the keelson to get a good key for the glass and dynel

cheers
