The problem with not doing the sides with the roof is the need to grind the cloth edges on the two layers of roof glass. I single handedly glassed the entire vaka both sides in one session with a yellow squeegee (my favorite weapon) of CLCs’s Madness proa. Its doable, but ya gotta set aside some time and keep that mixing stick going
I have extensive experience glassing boat hulls (from kayaks to 40 foot hulls. I suggest smoothing the centerline front to back first. Use push pins to hold cloth in position in the centerline. Then smooth the cloth down to the edges about midway back on the roof (fore and aft centerline). Then smooth in each of the four quadrants at gradually increasing angles towards the front and back using the palm of your hand gradually working the wrinkles aheadnof your hand towards the corners. This does the same thing as tuggingnon the corners but if done gently and patiently and gradually – is easier on the cloth. The push pins are your second,third,fourth set of hands.
I have my own cnc machine so I plan to design my own galley unit; its basically furniture, which I’ve cnc cut a lot of. Also I plan to do my own cooler box, more triangular in shape than the CLC cut one. I have a Harbor Freight trailer but went ahead and got the Trailex with 12″ wheels. I did get the vent fan (labor day deal). headliner. and roof rack. By tomorrow, I should have panels 1 through 4 together.
Does anyone have suggestions for the mattress? Air mattress?
