Casey and Rob are great guys! I wish them the best with the repairs. I know they will get the boat back together and be on top of the class in 2021!!

would it be easier to just build a new hull? I heard the new DW32 hull bottoms are wicked fast.

Is the new 32’ DW a new CNC’d mold?

it seems like a lot, but the bondo is not like a car's bondo, this filler material is fiberglass/resin-based

and they use a thin amount where needed

DougWright Marine never uses automobile bondo anywhere on its boats

yes sir, here's a pic of the new mold being built using CNC machines...the hull is wider as well to accommodate comfy 4 passengers in the rear

The orange/tan filler sure looks like bondo. I am no fiberglass expert, but all the glass work I have done, the fairing compounds, fillers, etc. are the color of the epoxy or polyester resin used with maybe a small white tint depending on the thickener. Any comments from the "experts"?
