Re: Glassing deck - or no

Posted by Craig Robinson on Mar 22, 2005

I didn't glass the deck on my CH17. If I was to build another one I probably would though. I haven't had my boat finished for long enough to comment on durability. The reason that I would next time is because it is not that difficult and and would safe guard against the problems mentioned in the last post. I agree that itr would be a lot more difficult to do it later after the combing is on. I did add an extra stiffener to the rear of the aft hatch to reduce movement in that area. Cheers.
