A bulkhead is:

A wall within the hull of a ship A large storage container The front of a vessel Used to convert saltwater into freshwater

Which epoxy additive prevents sagging the best?

Cabosil Microballoons Wood flour Milled glass

Wood flour is the best choice for mixing with epoxy to make fairing compound.

True False

The acronym LWL stands for:

Length on the waterline Length overall Low water-level Life worth living

"Roll and tip" is a technique used for:

Flipping a boat after construction on a jig Painting a boat Fairing difficult surfaces Foaming between stringers

The transom is:

The structure that forms the stern of the hull The part of the boat where the center console is mounted Made of thinner and lighter core material than the rest of the hull The only part of the hull that does not require fiberglassing

Lifting strakes on V-bottom boat hulls increase their stability and allow a boat to achieve higher operating speeds.

True False

When filleting the transom and the hull it is best to have as much wood-to-wood contact as possible.

True False

BS 1088 is a standard for what?

Marine grade lumber Weather resistent top coats Anti-fouling paint Continuity in fiberglass

As epoxy cures it gives off energy in the form of heat.

True False

Microballoons are:

Used to thicken epoxy Easy to sand hollow spheres used in fairing compound A vital additive used in structural joints Incredibly dense and almost impossible to sand

Tabbing is the iterative process of filling in low spots and sanding.

True False

A structural fillet will be stronger if it fills the space between the wood being glued.

True False

Linear polyurethane paints do not require thinning.

True False

It is not necessary to overlap layers of fiberglass because it serves to add extra weight without any gain in strength.

True False

What type of deck hardware is depicted below?

cleat jam cleat figure-eight tie-off outrigger tie-down

The acronym LOA stands for:

Length overall Listing on aft Light on air Legally oxygenated air

Stitch and glue construction was first used to build canoes.

True False

Vacuum bagging is a technique used for:

using air pressure to help fiberglassing quickly cleaning fairing compound dust making waterproof compartments spreading microballons with epoxy over large surfaces

The most common side-effect to frequent and repeated exposure to epoxy is:

Skin sensitization Cramping of the calf muscles Night sweats Blurred vision and vomiting
