The FS supplied seat webbing kit is for a fore and aft securing of the foam blocks. I need to secure the foam the way it was done originally - fiberglass straps that run starb to port ( or vice versa ).
Put a strip of wax paper between the foam and the glass strip to keep it from dissolving the foam.
Wax paper good advice. I was going to use plastic but wax paper just as easy.
There is a lot of prep before I actually glass foam in. The way I see it:
- cut foam to fit.
- cut pcs of scrap wood to hold all the pcs of foam in place ( I'll be working with boat right side up not upside down )
- pre-glass several pcs of long narrow glass on a veneer table - leaving the ends un glassed
- sand areas to be glassed - tape wax paper in place.
- let resin get more tacky than usual for the upside downwet out - and glass fiberglass strips in.
Sound about right ?
I think Flying Scot determined that the port to starboard fiberglass straps were not sufficiently sturdy in rough conditions---the foam came loose. So they advised adding longitudinal straps to the port to starboard ones.
