On the transom we put 2x 600 chop, 1x 800/300 combi then another 600, same amount for tagging
On the floor we did 600 on both sides before we fitted them, tagged again the same and over all the floor joints then a layer of 600 over the whole deck

Thanks Biff.

I'm doing transom in epoxy and 450 biaxial next week. Been debating with myself for quite a while about tabbing. Outside is 15 mm thick. INSIDE skin was minimal. Transom knees 10 mm thick over foam. Going to replicate that but more inner skin.

Fantastic work and has anyone used a composite material for a deck/floor replacement as opposed to ply?

Thanks

Very nice - I know where to come when I want the Ribtec redecked, although I think (hope!) it is purely the (non sealed) deck that has a few soft spots, and the ribs/stringers/bulkheads seem to be encapsulated and solid.
