Re: [bolger] Re: Northern Lights
- Hi All -
Hey, hey, you guys' got me all excited and last noght I was out checking for those Northern Lights. But all I saw was the bottom of my glass of Southern Comfort.

- It's certainly not true that the purpose of a fillet is solely to
provide a curved surface for the glass. But if your engineering
concept is that the boat you are building would not require the
strength of the fillet (which can be enough by itself without any
glass), then just put the glass in without any fillet, that's
perfectly acceptable. It can be pre-molded over an abs pipe, for a
rounded chine effect, or scrunched hard to the inside corner, or let
hot flash and then tooled into the joint, or you can radius masking
tape and fire it over that. I don't see much harm in any caulk used
in the joint, it just seems like a possible contaminant, and extra
weight and expense.
