Why vinylester resin and not polyester resin? Poly is better with CSM. Its easier to absorb i to the CSM. Plus poly is a laminating resin. It stays tacky and you dont have to sand in between layers.

Re: Cappy's f32 rehab

Engine hatches installed. All is good. Need to start up engines and get ready to get wet. Going to use FRP for the toe kicks around the outside under the gunnel wall.

Re: Cappy's f32 rehab

Uncovered the boat yesterday. Not happy with the bow at all. Softer then i remember. That i will have to keep an eye on. Will definitely have to cut it all out and recore this winter. Im hoping it doesnt effect my season.
