Strakes: Flox between the ribs and bottom skin


Recommended Posts

Hello All,


Okay, I admit I may be overthinking this, but I have to ask.


When installing the bottom skins I have noticed on several websites, and in the plans, to place flox between the ribs and the bottom skin.

This is followed with adding 2" BID tapes to join the ribs to the bottom skin.


I am curious as to why we need to put the flox between the ribs and the bottom skin. Aren't we just bonding the rib foam to the skin?


It seems the real bond or strength comes from the tapes and not the rib-foam to bottom skin glass juncture.


Am I missing something.
