So when you saturate soak the boat do you let it cure before glassing, or do you put the fiberglass on while the saturated boat is still "wet"?
Some builders plan to not glass the inside of their boats. This can be a bad mistake. When, not if, a boat - especially a flat bottomed boat - gets hung up on an underwater object (rock, stone, stump, etc.) the wood will bend inwards.
THIS IS A CRITICAL TIME in the life of the boat. If the inside is glassed, the wood is MUCH less likely to break wood fibers into splits and splinters. An unprotected boat floor is easier to break than a protected one. Do your boat, and yourself, a favor. glass at least from the waterline down on the inside of your boats.
Has anyone thought about glassing the inside of the boat after you rough cut the panels, and then assemble perinstructions?
Always glass the inside to a little above the waterline when loaded heavily. When the boat runs up on a snag and gets hung up, the wood can get bent inwards badly. Without glass on the inside, it can split badly.
