Small update as were waiting on core to get delivered for the Hullsides panels.

45* angle on tunnel prepped out ready for panel. Bagged a couple seams on the main tunnel panel panel. Locked the pain tunnel panel to the lift strake and running surface. Cleaning up some seams and getting them locked into place.

can see in the last photo , how when you bend green resin, and let it full cure, bent , it will hold the shape.

we are going to individually tab each seams on the inside. Then do a full carbon / Kevlar layup on the inside running all the way to the bulkhead dispersing the load.

Very interesting to learn and see this. Thank you for sharing. With all of the boats you work on what are your thoughts of skater build quality and layup?

Letís just say, skater is the only cat I will, ever... ever own.

the way these boats are built, is damn near an engineering marvel. Anyone who knows me knows Iím not brand loyal what so ever. Trucks. Snowmobiles boats etc. Iíve been in quite a few boats over the years. If I own a cat, I will only ever own a skater. After seeing their build quality , how they build and balance... its incredible

Well I locked in a pair of motors. Should do the trick to push this ride as fast as I need it!

more pics will be coming in the next few days. This whole shut down has my delay of resin taking a hit. Letís hope it gets here soon. In the meantime , cranking on customers projects
