Plastic Covering Materials
« on: June 07, 2008, 03:04:32 pm »

Hi all, before I do this, I was wondering if any of you have tried covering materials such as Monokote as a hull finish, particularly on balsa and plywood. I've seen it done once so far, but I'm wondering about long term maintenance and water intrusion. I'm considering pre-finishing the hull with Balsarite so the film sticks better to the wood and offers some measure of fuel proofing. I figure if float plane pontoons are done this way, why not a whole hull? Your thoughts on this matter are appreciated. When it comes to using fiberglass for a finish, I'm rather lazy.
