Rod demonstrating the lightness of his new F-32 float (with a little help from Photoshop)
Rod is using a quick and easy way to heat the foam strips with heat
lamps, when required for bending the foam around tight corners.
Rod has also developed a unique method for the foam strip edge joins, as shown above.
Each strip is glued to the other when fitting with a slow setting hot glue on the center flat
surfaces, leaving a small slot on each side of the join. This gives an immediate strong bond,
and the slots are later filled with an epoxy putty just prior to fairing. Seems to work well.
