A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts
I am building the beam troughs on my Tiki 38 and the plan book advises that you "glass all ply surfaces before assembly". Is that all I need to do? I would have thought that the inner surfaces would be subject to enormous chafe, and that the friction between beam and trough would mean that I would be down to bare wood in no time at all. Am I worrying too much? What have other builders done, and what would they have done differently if they had had to do it all again? I believe that you can add graphite powder to epoxy for high friction surfaces. Has any builder gone down this route? Your advice would be appreciated.
