If you did that, I would add a layer of fiberglass on the outside of the sonotube. But I would first bondo all the seams and sand it smooth.
Hi Pinbout, I hope that you've been well! I'm using Newt for the web to build the 6in f8 and it looks like I'll need a 50in ota.
I've called quite a few places (including white cap) and the only options are either 48in or 12 feet.
I read one of your posts where you said that it was okay to duct tape two sonotubes together. That's what I'm thinking about doing, but I just wanted to ask if there was any other things to keep in mind or watch out for?
Also, it's tricky finding tubes with matching ODs. I'm thinking to wrap heavy duty paper around the smaller tube to match the larger OD, since I'm going to fiberglass the entire OTA anyway. Does that sound like a good idea?
