the v birth is ready to upgrade . should i reinforce the bow with stringers and then attach wood slates to them or should i use vinyl and foam from sailright. I am using fiberglass board (cheap home depot stuff) to mount at the top using original teak trim. its the sides i am wondering about
We recently recovered ours using the white vinyl with foam backing from sailright.
We did not reinforce the bow. I didn’t have the time or energy for that project and we don’t plan to sail off shore. We’ve not had issues with oil canning in the Chesapeake Bay.
Looks and feels good.
