Cuben seams
Oh. Tape. I think tape is quite a bit heavier and less reliable than careful Hysol seams. Very thin, strong, almost invisible seams are possible with the low-viscosity Hysol (U-09lv). I don't t...

Weight estimates for bonded seams
Lynn, Like Nia, I am a bit interested in how you estimated the weight of bonded seams. I'm not asking just to be contrary (although it seems to me that well-done cuben seams are not heavier ...

water infiltration
These are the reasons that I had initial concerns about this design. I don't know what the baffle width is, so I don't know how many seams there are, but seam sealing would probably signifi...

This is a clever idea, Zelph. What kind of stainless steel is it (304? 316?) and what is the thickness of the foil (0.002")? I've found that foil can be susceptible to developing pinholes ...
