update on the hull #11, So the mold is all square and level, now the gelcoat is sprayed . this is a Epoxy High build primer that we use (this gets us that much closer to finish paint down the road).

Talk about space-age technology. Now Hendo is using alien fibers. :shock:

Nice work. Getting the uni fibers straight is both very important and (at least for me) difficult.

Hendo, are the new boats being cored with Nomex now? Which hull did you switch over to from the foam core?
