Looking for idea's to toughen the bottom of the plane.I do alot of flying in the winter and in the past I have found with other amphib's the covering usually rips open on the bottom due to ice and snow.
I'm about to cover the Seamaster in Ultracote and have tried a few test samples using fiberglass cloth and Z-Poxy.I allowed for a 1/4" overlap of Ultracote then laid the cloth and Z-poxy over top.It actualy bonded to the wood and the covering very well which led me to believe I could paint the bottom of the plane and cover the rest of the plane in covering.
Using Ultracote primer and paint is where I ran into trouble.The primer bubbled and "orange peeled" even after sanding the surface first.The paint did the same.
Any idea's ?
