Just watching paint dry now!!!

changes have been made to both structure and the actual running surface design.

tomorrow we will finally have the boat level so the exhausts can come out of it and i can do the hot end inspections...even after the very short run we did in st.clair!... just like arruda was charging jeff for! lol

we are cutting it close for MI city....but we shall see

=....how do ya like my thread!....

we would have never finished one race if we needed to stop first sign of "cosmetic" damage! good thing we have brian on our team that is the head painter of a massive body and paint facility, or we would never have even started a race! brian also spent months at mystic.


Who was on the Radio Saying it was only cosmetic? as I recall an old thread it was the JBS support Team, Was John C on the Radio saying to keep going? Pretty Big Factor!!!!

jeff and i were having a laugh in the boat while running this weekend...i was telling him (while LOL) he had the mystic side and he was worse off! then he answered with it would snap roll and crush me on my side.

"Nice big ole piece of balsa and some vinylester will fix her up!
"....funny how strong it is!

Obviously Skater knows much better than I, but I am surprised at how small the bonding surface for the repair scarf joint is. 3 inches of glue is all that is keeping a 3 foot section of bottom from blowing off.

Is that really enough at 200mph? I don't know so if anyone can explain it I would appreciate it.

it's both a chemical and mechanical bond.

the boat is now back at skater with the prop cut out no doubt. surprisingly in great shape considering.

i have some work to do with the engines in the boat. then take them out and do the appropriate inspections.

the tubes gotta come off.

the starboard side of the hull will then be cut off/out as the port was. then there is a ton of work to make them both to JBS Racing spec's. While the engines are out; we will be working on both sides internal structures on top of what is touching the water.

It will be interesting to see the results of those changes, especially to the hull of a boat designed to run 200mph and has done so.

As to the "hot end inspections", are you saying that Turbine Marine charged JBS Racing for work it did not do?
