I'm rebuilding the 6m Concorde RIB below. The transom and stringers have already gone, and the deck is going to be replaced too (its completely untreated on the underside).
Best way to fit a new deck? enclose the ply in glass externally and then glass it onto the hull? is it reasonable to use polyester resin for this to keep the cost down
for transom replacement most guides seem to suggest adhering the bare core with epoxy filler, then coating with matting. Why not coat the core in epoxy/fabric first and then attach to the hull, with further layers on top?
