Develop and make the shape of a boat. To do this, first you need to make the drawings on paper, and then, according to them, assemble the desired size. Then you need to make a shape for boats made of fiberglass. To create it you will need to cut all the needed parts from wood. You should make every effort to wooden form was literally perfect. If you do not belong to the finishing mold in an extremely responsible manner, then it is possible that the boat will have various flaws and defects.
Cover the form with a special paint for outdoor use, which has high strength and is aged for about eight years in operation. Do a fiberglass boat. For this you need to add a certain amount of fibreglass in a plastic resin. Fiberglass is an ideal shipbuilding material since it is glass, which is represented in the form of very thin, flexible fibers that do not burn, do not stretch, and does not give in to rot over time.
Place the fiberglass into every crevice, every nook and cranny of your form. This should be done very gently and carefully, because otherwise you can not have anything to do with the structural defects of the boat. After the fiberglass has accumulated sufficient heat, it will harden.
Roll top fiberglass roving material. It enhances all the properties of the fiberglass and makes it more resistant. In those places where then you are planning to attach the equipment, you need to place the wooden parts. To protect them from the damaging effects of moisture coat the parts with fiberglass.
Pull the casting from the wooden form when one hour passes. With the aim of raising the hull of boat use leverage. Cut out the holes for the mechanics. Insert the motor, wiring, and piping system. Swipe a series of tests that will allow you to make sure that the boat is waterproof.
Advice 2 : How to build a boat fiberglass
Today, the Russian market has no shortage of floating funds. Offering buyers everything from simple rubber boats to luxury yachts worth several million dollars. However, the desire to own a cherished boat should not be limited only to financial resources. For example, it is possible to make the most of the usual fiberglass.
You will need
- the glass flake material, polyester resin, brushes, rollers, sandpaper, sander, drill, scissors, a vacuum cleaner and a syringe for the hardener.
We must start with the project. If yourself such a task can not afford, do not worry because there is the Internet and old magazine "Boats and yachts". So there you will find everything your heart desires. So, the project at hand, you can start. Because in the future will have to deal with toxic chemicals, it is better construction to produce on the street. So your child will not get wet from unexpected rain, it is recommended to build a shelter over your home yard small shed.
Perhaps the most difficult and time-consuming step in the manufacture of fiberglass boats – the creation of the matrix. Start with the manufacture of the frame and attached to its frames. The frames - plywood Board. With special attention to the bow of the matrix and the edges of the boards, the production of which is better to use 12mm plywood.
Extended side carefully apply sandpaper, since this will depend on the surface the future of the boat. For the putty matrix can use polyester putty. Spare no expense on careful levelling of the surface of the matrix.
Don't forget a very important detail of the boat – keel. Do it first with wood and then cover with polyester resin. The surface bring to the ideal state with the help of grinding machines.
Now you can proceed to the application of glass flake material on the side. In the course of the work are inserted in the nipples required to separate the boat from the matrix and produce seat. After that apply the matrix 4 of the separating layer of wax, wait to dry, and apply the gelcoat.
The hull will consist of five layers of glass flake material that gives it stiffness and strength. Extra pieces cut with scissors and glued in place on the seat. You have quite a bit to tie the oarlocks, sanded the Board, and if you wish to paint. Happy sailing!
