        Yea I know what you mean about having your boat torn a part. I'm in deep right now up to my elbows in epoxy. I'm glassing in my transom cap today and some of the fillets have to go upside down [] Lets see if i can post a pic on this site. Here is were I'm at right now.

          Strick,

          Project looks great man, I have been following along on the CSC site. Would you happen to have any pics of the back side of the transom cap that would show the lip you built for the hatches to sit on?

              Shep are you talking about this?



              I just took a router to the transom cap which is 1" thick and routered out an area slightly larger then the hatch. The foam you see in the pic is the core cell which is sandwiched between layers if fiberglass in the transom cap. I then put a layer of fine cloth over the exposed core cell using cabosil as the adhesive. If I was smart I would have took the time to build in the recessed hatch areas into the original mold. This would have saved me tones of time trying to make it look nice. If that is not what you are talking about let me know. Strick
