thank you sir... it really is bad but ive managed to get some more stuck plastic out of it but its taking some gel with it. plan of atack is find a new hull or fix the mold pull a part out of it then fix the part a little better and pull a mold off of it.

the worst part is i paid 150 for a new in box hull and killed it. on top of that you cant always find a t-plus hull

thanks again...mike

Have you made any progress? Looking for a strong light hull for LSH competition.

hey guys....sorry its been so long since ive posted. ive been slowly working on the lower hull mold to be ready to pull a part from. my gelcoat supply company was a little short on tooling gel for 3 weeks so that has also slowed things down. i will need to make a new lower mold because the one i maid has way to much damage to fix properly. so when i pull the part out i will be fixing it to make a new mold from. for me its much easyer to do it that way.

im also making a mold for a tunnel hull to run 3.5 outboards. and for some of you gas guys or sick electrics im makeing a 48 inch apache offshore hull.

so i have plenty of work to do in the next couple of weeks.

thanks again guys for your intrest in this project.

mike
