:twisted: too funny

Matt, I've used FGI 'surfset' epoxy with polyester filler - personally I wouldn't do it again. Yellows badly for one, but the main issue I had was areas of de-lamination usually when drilling with the forstner bit to do FCS plugs and legrope plug.

Just that little bit of pressure would flex the laminate and de-lam a halo of resin. I imagine if you had an impact the same thing would happen.

Only used it twice and each time was the same result and the second time I had even sanded those areas to make sure they were well keyed for the polyester.

To my (limited) knowledge, epoxy bond over polyester is all about the preparation. Given you can't sand what you have done you will have to base the bond on how much of the foam cell is going to be a useful key for the resin. My thought, is like with like, stick to one or the other and don't try to mix.

go with the bonzer look and put a big centre fin in as well to see how it goes.
you probably could of cut the thickness down to 2.5 with that width.
would probably be good to teach the kids on tho

matticus, I love that your still shaping mate, I hope you get to shape again. I love the idea of a single all the way through, great stuff, but the suspense, what happened, don't make us wait much longer

matticus I feel the same mate. I havent picked up a planner for a long time and would have to start all over again. Not sure if I will ever shape again but im always thinking about it, it never leaves you. Thought about mucking around on aku but it doesnt allow you to put in channels so I just cant see the point. :(
