Modern Art? or...
Experiments with Corebond? Got a five gallon bucket of Corebond this weekend. This is a special two part adhesive with a putty consistency. It is specially formulated for use with foam. For the Westsail project, it's primary use will be bonding/bedding foam to the hull. Once the adhesive is smoothed and cured, you can glass right over it. Of course one uses foam to save weight (lighter than wood and easier to cut). In that spirit, corebond is light as well. A piece of cured corebond will float in water.
