sheer strips & fiberglass tape?

Submitted by frankp on Wed, 05/30/2018 - 23:12

So I put the new stripped deck on my Northbay this week.  I used thickened epoxy but couldn't do tape at the same time and I have now glassed the deck outside with about a 2 inch overlap of the rail.  I narrowed the sheer strips from the original stitch and glue build down to about a 1/4 inch and was intending to tape the inside seam.  At this point, I'd like to put her in the water for a couple test runs before finalizing everything.  

Thoughts on whether or not my mods to the sheer seam will present any issues if I don't put the inside tape on first?

If the outside seam is taped, then there should be no problem as long as you are reasonably careful - no rock gardening!
