Cloth or not?

Post by spencer66 » Fri Apr 30, 2010 12:24 am

The DK is coming together beautifully am very impressed with the ease of the project and how well it all is.I'm not sure if I need to put fiberglass cloth over the deck areas?Or is it ok to just coat with resin,any info greatly appreciated.May have left my run a bit late think boat will be complete in a couple of weeks from now,but the weather is changing quickly here in the south island of NZ.Hope to get in a paddle befor it gets to cold!!

if you're using "non marine" grade wood, consider fiberglass coverage. It will protect the wood grain better.
