Hey fellow followers LOL
Got some of it glued together,left it over night to fully cure and starting to take shape again,gonna concentrate on centre pod and add another piece to the transom for some extra strength.

You sure you not gonna need a pilots license for this one Daz ?  [ha ha].

Looking good matey, presume you might put some polystyrene blocks on the sponsons? or might you be using expanded foam,  simply for boyancy, plus may help stop them flexing so to speak.

I will add somthing in the sponson just not sure yet what will be best,i'll cross that bridge nearer the time,for now just concentrating on getting the sponsons skinned and the pod floor,i will then reinforce the insides with some epoxy and cloth strips :-))

Hope You & the family are  feeling better now daz, presume the heating crisis is sorted now. [i Hope].

Some of the Chasewater MBC crew are off to the boat show Saturday, so pool should be reasonably quiet if you fancy doing some more testing Daz. I'll be there and maybe a couple of the other lads . I'm working am and sunday am, so cant go to the show :(
