    Default seam sealing

    Hi,



    wooden hull. Looks like the seams are covered/sealed with some kind of woven fabric about 2 inches wide and possibly covered in resin.



    Would this be a correct assessment and what fabric should I use please?



    If it is resin, is it special or would normal car repair stuff be ok?



    Regards

    Peter

    you could put a layer of chopped strand (CSM) matting 300g for example, UNDER the tape to make a stronger seam!

    Hi,



    thanks for the links!



    I wasn't plannig on using too much resin, etc, just enough to re-seal the top deck when I replace it (if it ever stops raining at the weekends!).



    Regards

    Peter
