    Hi.

    I am trying to work out the easiest way of glassing a number of timber rowing seats. The seats are in reasonable condition. We are refurbishing the entire 17 year old boat but it is not worth replacing the seats.
    I have 185gsm carbon fibre twill.
    I would prefer to glass the top face as well as the edges - perhaps extending the cloth under the edges of the bottom of the seat (but not the entire bottom face) with a single piece of cloth - if possible.
    I do not have access to vacuum bagging. But have access to the usual hand tools for glassing.
    I was wondering if someone may have some suggested way of getting a good finish.

    Thx in anticipation.
    The seats look like this: timber rowing seat - Google Search https://www.google.com.au/search?q=timber+rowing+seat&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiGkOippfbbAhUBC6YKHTdrAC4Q_AUICigB&biw=1707&bih=844&dpr=1.13#imgdii=jmyVBClZ1RrmKM:&imgrc=Mj-9K36Og1JzyM:

    There are instructional videos on youtube for skinning and wrapping using carbon fibre.
