Location: north of pompano [quote=FAST FRED] Same as with Tiawan Tubs when the GRP paint is puncured and not resealed. Location: Queensland No denying that wood, as an organic material will rot in cases of neglect.
Location: north of pompano I believe the reference was directed to Taiwanese boats, of which some I have painted were nothing but foam and paint. Location: Gosport Lantor Coremat is better than Sphericore and Upica as it is made using short fibres and therefore breaks down quicker and releases the air better. Location: Preveza I believe that where balsa suffers most in comparison is where a localized impact is severe enough to cause damage to the core and delamination. Thanks to buckknekkid for the chart, one with some equal layers of frp would be a good comparison as well. Spheretex sphere.core SBC has a comparative analysis of 4 composites where they show how they are on par with balsa but have better bonding qualities than balsa as the problem with bonding dissimilar materials is their advantage. Location: Trondheim, NORWAY I just received a free package of samples from spheretex and will compare with divinycell.
When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
Location: Lake of the Ozarks Building 10 foot fiberglass boat with a foam core I am building a 10 foot boat out of 2 inch thick pink foam insulation from home depot.
The grey back half of the first picture is paint because at that point I didn't know that epoxy doesn't melt foam, and I was trying to seal it up. The pink foam from the big box stores isn't a structural foam, so the laminate will have to do all the work. Yep, all epoxied surfaces that will have UV exposure will need to be protected, with paint (the best) or varnish.

Location: Eustis, FL With Hunter's insistence on these shoal contrivances in their shorter fins, you can expect a bit more leeward slip, compared to a clean, deeper and higher aspect fin.
As to sectional shapes, you can drive yourself quite nuts with all the decisions and foil offerings. I know the profile of the boat shows the rudder slightly aerated, but in practice I don't think any part of it comes out of the water often. Location: Eustis, FL The 36 (shoal) is more tapered, but the leading edge radius is what I wanted you to focus on.
PAR, you mentioned that I should use the laminar flow foil at the top because the flow will be turbulent there?
What's the possibility of rigging a fix, such as putting a short, inside sleeve at that most vulnerable point?

Maybe running a hone up and down the inside of the shaft and getting it cleaned up to a uniform ID, then have a stainless pipe insert maybe 12" long of the correct OD. The original 87mm shaft joins to a non stainless smaller shaft and the tabbing was a V shape which is why we could not separate it. But when I put a 0014 section up against the outline, my foil appears to be narrower at the leading edge, so I am not sure if it is a 0014 after all. Location: Coastal Georgia So, except for that small patch of crevice corrosion, the rudder was OK? Anyhow now I need to decide on the design of the shaft and tabbing system since I can not use the old stuff. Location: Eustis, FL At what point of the rudder's span was this obvious 63 series section pulled?
All I noted was the section was 14% all the way down and the foils did not appear to change. Location: Brisbane Here is a good thread on rudder foils where Tom Speer says that there are much better options than the 63 series. If you change to a solid shaft and add weight, make sure the rudder supports can handle the extra weight.
Location: Hampshire UK Don't panic DennisRB, the profile guage method will get you within a few tenths of a millimeter.
I do try different foil sections and have worked through moving the chord around a bit to establish any difference on small dinghies. You will be fine, the only other tip I will pass on is watch for the chord centre moving either aft or forward as it progresses down the foil IF the foil tapers in length front to stern. Of course I should have listened and just made a whole new rudder, would have been much quicker and probably saved me a lot of money in epoxy. I would suggest that as a core material it would take more than just scratching the paint off it to allow water to enter though. The black in the second picture is colored caulk that I used to smooth the surface once the boat was in position for fiberglassing. Of course, painting the foam then applying goo and fabric means, your bond to the foam is entirely dependent on the paint to foam bond, which compared to epoxy is really weak. I did get to test it out after finishing my second layer and I am pretty happy with the design.
The rudder shapes Hunter used in this general era are pretty consistent with the thinking at the time.
Because the top of your rudder is exposed, I'd be inclined to use a laminar section in that area, but the bulk of the foil can be a 00 series, with the tip again (whee the leading edge curve begins) employing a laminar section to control eddie making. Heat up the rudder shaft, cool down the sleeve insert and then drive or press it into place.
Then after the insert is in place you could weld up those holes, which would secure the insert in place. There were some girlfriends that I wouldn't have minded sending out into the Pacific with a rudder like that, but I wouldn't have wanted to go with them. If the shaft weakened, cracked and separated around that area, it would just slip off the insert and leave a useless stub in the water.

Right here a generator tries to a core foam 1 quot two itinerant thick deck coaming Foam Core Boat Building . There are some air bubbles in the first layer because of small gaps between sheets of foam.
Have a look at the Hunter 41 (2006) and the 39 (2009) and you'll see the latest generation of their rudder and what I'm talking about in regard to changes to it's plan form. In fact, H-105 was designed to offer low drag and minimal cavitation characteristics, while still showing better lift then the previously mentioned sections. At the same time you would fill in the crevice corrosion with weld and then smooth it back down to the original diameter. I have learnt quite a bit about foils on a limited range of boats but it has been interesting and instructive. If you use the frame shape woman die so the boat foam construction will take place effortlessly and there would be no desire to attack again and again. I am going to fix the bigger ones, but I'll probably just leave the small ones alone, since it's just between the first layer and foam.
Yes, I assume the top of the blade will be immersed, but it will be in turbulent water, so the laminar sections (there) will reduce drag.
There are other choices and a Reynolds number study would be wise before selecting a section in this area. I have the tools to 3D model and 2D draw but these are used in conjunction with 'hands on' build and experience.
My reason for doing 5 layers was that I intend to put an old jet ski engine in it, so it will be going pretty fast, and will need to have similar strength to a jet ski hull. These are Henderson's versions and I think much better and your plan form would do well if shaped like the 36-2 (2008) rudder. As a foam cored laminate, the core will separate (delaminate) from the inner and outer skins, making it useless, except as built in floatation and moisture containment system.
I'm not sure why you elected to employ 5 layers of 1708, but this is a whole lot more than necessary in a real foam cored build. The advantage of this idea was that could be used by simply turning around them and made them work in a vertical pattern. Rolling was also easy with these foams and building boats produced a relatively simple process. There are many of these publications on the market some created by specialists in the discipline other people consisting. To make a great boat that will be the final is long it is best to make use of the boat the development of foam.
