So i ground out all the inner skin and balsa core, and set the West Epoxy to work with like a gallon and a big tube of 403.

The first 1/4 " layer went on fine, and with PK's blessing followed your advice.

Threw a sheet of 6 mil down, and filled the boat with like 500 gallons of water.....ok maybe 300

Seemed to be working well until about midnite when i noticed a little water creeping along the ply from some pinhole.
But by that time the poxy had kicked and so it's all good. You could see the ply conforming

Should be ready for the Nipples /Ribcage run in a week or two
Boat can fit like 5 boards/kits....

Thanks for the weird-reverse vacumn bagging technique

Trying to get JE to CNC me a big Abide stencil for the deck.....he has the program from the tagging days.....he's gone corporate though.

Haven't got to names yet....i think it's a "he"....too ugly for a woman

You can go for a ride if you can swim......Oh wait, yeah i've seen you swim alot

Please do not name it a He. Traditionally, sea going craft are female in Origin.

Ask the Germans from WWII what happens when you name your biggest bad@$$ battle ship after a dude name Otto Van Bismark.... Very Happy
