Got the main running surface bonded in and bent today. Letting it cure over the weekend before ill release it. Let the epoxy full cure In the full shape.

tabbed in the point so itíll hold it together.

surprisingly bend incredibly easy for 5 layers of 1700 and triple stacked 2Ē core.

hull sides up next. Getting as much done before the honey moon next week so I can let it cure up while
im gone 😁

Stupid question, Iíve never done much in the way of fiberglass repair, itís an art for sure.

Would it have been possible to have skater use their mold for that part of the sponson and then just attach that? It could be something that would throw them off for a month or however long and wouldnít be worth it. I have no idea just curious.

not a stupid question at all. my plan was to use a customers 40SS to pull a mold off. which , would have been the easiest. stagger the joint and Core. though, timing by the time I got the 46 out, with other projects lined up, having that 40 in the shop in the winter or even.a couple weeks with NY weather wasn't really an option. Second plan was to re shape and pull a tool off my own boat. build a part, graft it on. That, also was going to take too long. 3rd option was to have skater build me a sponson like you say and I would just graft it on. they are way too busy and weren't really interested in it. though, in a hour long phone call with Peter, he explained the panel build process and explained how it was so much easier, less time consuming, and actually stronger splitting the joints across multiple areas. So thats the option I took. route #4 LOL

Panel #4 bagged down. This one is 4 layers 1700 with some light cloth ontop for print through matching. This will be the inner tunnel panel. Should be bonded on tomorrow or Thursday


Main large tunnel face is where this is going. Old pic but shows location.

Starting to take shape. All the critical panels are locked in and full cured. Waiting on more core for the Hullsides. Getting there ! Should be done with the sponson by end of next week
