Pieces of Boat Cloth (200gm) wider than 1m?

Recommended Posts

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).

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)

 

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

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.
