Can anyone tell me where to get wider pieces of boat cloth than 1m? 

 

Everywhere I google has rolls 1m wide, I need a bit wider, and dont want a join.

Thanks, but they have 1020mm only, some places seem to have 1270mm widths, hunting around at the moment (Will take longer to find then to just overlap and fair I suspect)

Hi, not sure what it is you're doing but you can overlap the 2 sheets of glass, epoxy then cut carefully down the middle - see link below. So you end up with a near perfect edge joint between the 2 sheets - and no hassle with all the fairing and filling the seams.

apologies if I'm teaching you to suck eggs (as the old saying goes).

When I click on that link they were all 1270mm wide and I have purchased it off them at 1270mm wide.

If it's mission critical to have a 50" wide roll and you don't mind waiting a little while you could order from soller composites in the US and get it shipped

Yes, but not the 200gm cloth.

Thanks, that's a good idea, I've not tried that technique. Probably what I'll end up doing.

 

I am just sheathing the outside of a very small dinghy, and a 1270mm wide bit would mean no overlaps.

These people have 200g cloth at 1300mm (50") wide. Isn't this what you're looking for?
