PU Blank with too much rocker. Stringer cut out, added 3" center 2lb foam stringer. Super floppy blank now
Desired rocker fixed with vac bagging balsa planks on bottom.
PEEL PLY Measuring out and cutting with 2 inch hangover of rails. This will be used for an exposed cork top lamination.
I use peel ply for vac bagging most everything except wood planks such as balsa. I use PEEL PLY for carbon fiber, kevlar, texalliumin, nylon, cork and probably would use it with veneers if I used that stuff.
Once cut roll up keeping in mind if you start tail or nose to unroll it when needed.
Cut cork to overlap rails and an 1/8-1/4 inch to the bottom. It will be sanded off eventually.
Preparing for fiberglass cloth to cork foam side
Four ounce fiber glass cloth cut to cork outline
six ounce cloth cut 1(one) inch beyond the cork outline
Vac bag supplies nose to tail in order of placement.
