Replying to:Centreboard Layups
Anyone some advice on glassing Centreboards.. I've been standing on my current Centreboard a LOT lately, and am impressed by the bend it takes with my 85kg standing on the tip, without snapping. I've shaped a new board but am unsure how much cloth would be needed to preventing snapping it in similar circumstances. Core is laminated WRC only, (no hardwood strips) I've put a base layer of 300gsm UniDirectional Carbon Fibre on and one layer of 85gsm Cloth over that.. Is that enough or would more be required. Would like to hear from someone who has broken one and knows how it was layed up.
