    F2E41E16-CE49-49C3-BBE7-7F33020684A6.jpeg this seam has a single piece of 6" 1708 tape

    The decks are glued down with epoxy n cabosil.

    Decks are Gurit Corecell M with 22 ounce triax each side.

    Lots of gluing locations.

    Do I need more tape? Inside? Outside, too?

    I can get to the insides a bit. It seems really strong as is. I am 220# and can jump up and down on it. The deck is supported by 12 pound core on the inwhale and 5 pound core at the gangway and lots of cleats and other stuff all glued.

    I have an email into Richard, but sort of asking urgently as I forgot to ask him.

    Not really a classic hull/deck seam. It is 15" wide at the gangway and 75" wide @ inwhale.
