Lifting strakes on V-bottom boat hulls increase their stability and allow a boat to achieve higher operating speeds.
A structural fillet will be stronger if it fills the space between the wood being glued.
As epoxy cures it gives off energy in the form of heat.
The transom is:
The structure that forms the stern of the hull
The part of the boat where the center console is mounted
Made of thinner and lighter core material than the rest of the hull
The only part of the hull that does not require fiberglassing
"Roll and tip" is a technique used for:
Flipping a boat after construction on a jig
Painting a boat
Fairing difficult surfaces
Foaming between stringers
Which epoxy additive prevents sagging the best?
Wood flour is the best choice for mixing with epoxy to make fairing compound.
Tabbing is the iterative process of filling in low spots and sanding.
Linear polyurethane paints do not require thinning.
Vacuum bagging is a technique used for:
using air pressure to help fiberglassing
quickly cleaning fairing compound dust
making waterproof compartments
spreading microballons with epoxy over large surfaces
What type of deck hardware is depicted below?
A bulkhead is:
A wall within the hull of a ship
A large storage container
The front of a vessel
Used to convert saltwater into freshwater
The acronym LOA stands for:
Listing on aft
Light on air
Legally oxygenated air
Used to thicken epoxy
Easy to sand hollow spheres used in fairing compound
A vital additive used in structural joints
Incredibly dense and almost impossible to sand
It is not necessary to overlap layers of fiberglass because it serves to add extra weight without any gain in strength.
BS 1088 is a standard for what?
Marine grade lumber
Weather resistent top coats
Continuity in fiberglass
Stitch and glue construction was first used to build canoes.
When filleting the transom and the hull it is best to have as much wood-to-wood contact as possible.
The most common side-effect to frequent and repeated exposure to epoxy is:
Cramping of the calf muscles
Blurred vision and vomiting
The acronym LWL stands for:
Length on the waterline
Life worth living
