Small Boat Design

Discussions around designing small boats including kayaks and canoes.



I'm looking for any additional info on gluing the deck of an Endeavour. I would like to use the tape method but realize that with nearly a 90 degree angle, it won't be easy. My plan at this point is to glue half of the tape to the underside of the deck and allowing it to set up and then laying the deck on the hull and strapping them together to line up the seam. The epoxy will then be applied with a roller on a poll through the cockpit and hatches. My question question involves the foot braces, foam bulkheads getting in the way not to mention the overall challenge in dealing with the angle of approach.

I do have a respirator but not fitted with a full face mask. Should I consider getting one because of the fumes when I'm working in the cockpit.

Any suggestions would be apprecitated...
