Hey J,

That edge repair on the mould at the fin came out superbly! How did you do that? Looks like you gel-coated the entire area, did you then "just" sand back the excess gel-coat?

Impressive how you maintained the edges and the rest of the surface

If you don't prepare well, things will go wrong!

What can I say...
I must have got fish eye in the clear coat as it only showed up once I got the finishing coat on.
I let it dry and sprayed again. It should be OK.

The lay-up went no better......
I need to re look the templates too. They stretched out all over the place.
There are to few clamps, and I think I lost a Mylar spacer during the resin evacuation because the one edge can't close down tight!

That, between fetching my daughter, the gardner wanting to go home and my wife muffed because I never went with her......
Having said all that,
It just could be OK!

It always takes a coupe of tries before you get it right.
There is always a market for the seconds.
At least the bladder did not burst - that will make a right mess

Looks like I better get onto those wings pretty soon
