    cuttin foam??

    hello again gettin going again on foamie "1" trying to figure out how to attach engine stand to foam seen alot of people recess a piece of wood into the foam how do you cut this so clean and level?? and once you do this i guess you just epoxy it into place is the epoxy strong enough to hold my wooden stand to the piece of wood that i just recessed or do i also screw it in place ??

    thanks guys

    RE: cuttin foam??

    Use a router to get a nice clean recess. Then epoxy that in. You are going to want to use some fasteners to attach your motor stand to the recessed wood. Don't rely on epoxy to hold your motor stand to the hull.

    you can also glue it with polyurethane glue-(gorilla glue?) it foams up slightly when it cures- so make sure you cramp it in place-good for gap filling if your recess isn't to hot!
    if you dont have a router just surface glue it!
