  • I did want to watch and help if I could, but looks like shoulder surgery for me next week, and out of action for a while.

    Good luck, I'll be following on here.

      Steve, don't let Chuck get to you, go into his project page and check out the time/date stamps on his posts [] I think the state had drought conditions and he was blaming the rain. []

      You'll have plenty for the structural areas. IF you fall short it will just be high up on the transom sides where you don't really need the structure, except for the D-rings for the tie downs/lifting points.

          Granted they are still getting blamed for every bad thing happening on the Gulf Coast, I also get to blame BP [][][]. Remember...I wasn't in a hurry because I couldn't use as waters were closed.

            • The other day I was in West Marine picking up a gallon of resin and the guy checking me out said he needed some to redo his transom as well. We got to talking and I started talking about using pourable ceramic as a core. He proceeds to tell me that he ruined a boat because he kept pouring it in and the level kept dropping (first clue) and after it set up he THEN looked in the bilge and it was too late. The boat went to the dump. I do expect a leak here and there and will be ready, but anyone reading in the future, be warned......

                • It's amazing, when you open the cover to the pail and see how thick it is, you don't think it will flow well. BUT IT DOES! There's really no sense of urgency to get it all poured. So pour a little at a time and check for leaks. I had many screw holes I didn't know about with material exiting. It's been a while, but I want to say when we did DT's and mine, it didn't start setting up for a good hour. Mine was another story since it was cold out and i used heat to get mine going. So take your time and check often. There's no hurry

                              • I noticed some water still seeping out of my port main stringer so I hooked up the shop vac for about four hours.



                                Good suction and found three more holes in the stringer that need attention.



                                After four hours this is what came out of the hose when I unplugged my $30 harbor freight shop vac. I'll work it more tomorrow.



                                Templates cut and dry fit inner piece



                                Outer skin tabbed in - ran out of resin at 8 pm and called it a night.



                                I also got the inner skin corners glassed and hope to be ready to pour next Saturday if I can finish up tomorrow.
