Rib Repair

Postby JALL » Thu Dec 15, 2016 7:24 am

I'm not sure what it is called but can you cut off the bad part of the rib square and replace with good wood and then use another piece of rib over the top of the repair and long enough to over-lap the joint? Thanks for any help

That's not the best approach but I have seen it done on boats. The best way is to use a sloped scarf cut in the end of the ribs. Glue and screw or bolt the scarf together.

The fellow that I was talking to said it was just as strong. Do you agree?

No, i am with Andreas. I used angled scarf with screws and west system; tested it and has held so far.
