and Roc, is your hanging locker wood, inside?  are they shelves directly connected to the locker or are they on wood strips then the locker? thanks

Zoom in!!

You can see the wooden cleats on the sides. And the flat bars on the basket assembly ( typically screwed through when installing in the base o r onto shelves of kitchen cabinets.)

Ken,
I think Becki's question is related to the wood sidewalls rather than the cleats.  It looks like newer boats like Roc's are lined with wood (cedar?) compared to the picture I posted where one can see that the wall is bare fibreglass.  Or maybe Roc lined the locker himself.

B

I didnít say yours was anything.
I answered your 2 (clearly and well stated) questions - photo answers both:

1) What R rocís sides made of? and
2) how his baskets were attached (to wood strips or directly to the sides)? Pretty clear questions.

If youíre asking a different question like, how can I attach to mine, well, thatís a different, uh, question, Ďeh?

First, is there any backing you can screw into?
Epoxy cleats to the fiberglass (use microfibers, which is the best adhesive property and mixes easiest). Iíd block the cleats in place while the epoxy cures. An option would be to 5200 them in place but I donít see any benefit.


Thatís ass/u/ming what I envision the access/construction to be on yours, but above suggestions might be modified if I had hands on a 34.

i do have 4200 laying around, now that i'm using almost solely butyl tape, so i could use that for the cleats.  it's just raw fiberglass in my hanging locker, nothing else.  thanks

No benefit. Possible to use, but read between the lines.   I wouldnít, but YBYC.

If itís been hanging around previously opened, 5200 may be toast by now.
Never never ever ever use 5200 or 4200 as a SEALANT (butyl). Itís an ADHESIVE.

Jesus H Christ.  Where did I ever say that 5200 has microfibers? Go back and read the posts!!!!
You must be at work and distracted from the boat tweets. LOL.

Time to back out of this one. s-l-o-w-l-y.

what should i use to adhere wood to fiberglass?

Becki,

In addition to building the drawers in the nav station hanging locker, as shown in the link in one of my earlier posts, I added shelving in the starboard V berth locker.  I used open weave shelves that were wider than the door opening up there, 'cuz those shelves don't slide out.

I do not recommend using glue to install the cleats.  Why?  Because you need to fasten the cleats to the walls of the locker anyway to support them in the interim time while the glue sets up and hardens, which requires some kind of mechanical fasteners.  So, why not just screw or bolt them in to begin with?  :D

There's easy access from both the head side and the saloon side to drill through with bolts.  If you feel the need for waterproofing from the head side, just treat the bolt heads with butyl tape as you tighten them.  You can use finish washers or fender washers.

Your boat, your choice.  :D
