    Hi Guys !
    I am studying about lamination schedule for a motor boat of 19 ft . Have you got some example as reference ? What is the right value of light mat sheet after the gel coat of 0.8 mm ? I am thinking about 100 gr/m2 but i have seen that someone uses directly 300 gr/m2 is it correct ? What could be the issue to use or not use a light mat after the gelcoat .
    Also why use 2 mat of 300 gr/m2 rather then 1 of 600 gr/m2 to avoid waste ,resin accumulation and best adherence to hull surface ?
    Thank you so much in advance for your support :). Have a good day !

    Hi TANSL thank you so much for reply and for your precious tips have you got some reference plan? What do you think about the use of 225 g/m2 for the first layer on hull due lifting strakes geometry ? Have a good day !!!

    I think the radio that can be achieved by bending a MAT 300 may be sufficient. You do not need sharp edges such as knives, if that's what you mean.
