They do stuff alot differently in EUROPE , don't they. It's a race boat, stuff happens. Is it the builders fault if these guys hit something. I've beat the crap out of a boat built by the same guy for a whole season without any problems. Again Stuff happens. I am sure the boats not going to the scrap yard becuase of alittle delam.

do you see that big crane in the pic? it is being craned onto the myco "cradle" which is on a flatbed of a semi... no different than how they crane race boats out here except for the trucking aspect...

Dam I sure hope you're joking. White, furry, shredded glass strands don't take paint very well in my experience.

Chris288, I take it that you never raced a boat! There is a considerable difference in the pounding that is put on a race boat.

The green is epoxy, the whole boat is an epoxy layup.

Cigdaze, I think you're right about resin permeation/saturation

Possible flex in that area.
