God bless your ambition, just looking at the work in the pics overwhelms me. I will be interested in seeing the finished product. Keep us posted.
Best of luck

Cool project. If you need any info on Gel Coat call up Mini Craft in Florida www.minicraft.com. They are the most knowledgeable gel guys that are out there. They also make a thinner that will spray out VERY smooth and leave you with little wet sanding.

Magnum 27,I know what you started with,my team towed it in Lauderdal in 2001 were george destoyed it running in 6 to 8s.He run so hard he had 1 lap on P4 and 5.I think him and the 38 cat that beat us in P4 were the only ones to finish before the C.G.shut it down.Anyway great job,and you can race us and the Gambler in P4 in 2005.

Don't let them scare you about the black. This black is 18 years old, you can see the reflections of the boat cover in it.
