I am working on a boat at the moment with several epoxy laminated frames and floors throughout the boat. One of the frames and a couple of floors are through the engine bay area ( which is quite a small area). The epoxy manufacturers data shows a heat distortion temperature of 122 degrees F. I am certain that the engine room temp will be close to this temp when the engine is hot.
Should I be using epoxy to laminate these frames or go back to resorcinol? I realise that the frames/floors will have some fastners through the planking into them which should stop some creep but would it be enough?
Thanks in advance.
