- Apr 14, 2008Hi Robert,
Hopefully when you got done cutting this weekend, you ended up with
something like the top photo on this page:
http://www.kolbsadventures.com/toto_1.htm , perhaps with the panels
already scarfed in the middle. Once you are at this point, it's
completely up to you which side goes in or out.
I like to put the bad side out, mainly because nowadays I glass every
boat. I didn't glass the outside of my first Toto, but I did on my
second and it's actually easier to do that way, in my view. Since
Toto is so small, it's simple to omit taping the outside seams and
just glass the whole exterior instead. Doing so requires that you
tape the inside seams first, building "right side up" to start.
On the other hand, if you don't want to glass the exterior, but you
are planning to deck both ends of the boat, putting the bad side in
means you can hide more of the rough panel faces under the fore and
aft decks, and not worry about smoothing out those areas.
