Looks like a strong layup; maybe even strong enough for my landings

Tom, you know he's talking about the mold, not the parts, right?

I should have said: "that needs to be the layup that I need for my style of landings".

Chapter one is in the books!


Surface coat was brushed on while i heated it .
This stuff is really thick and that is warmed up. It hardly pours from the container but with some heat you can maneuver it around with a brush.

Nice work Joe. So, does this first half of the mold go into the hot box for a day or two?

It is 95 degrees in Ramona for the next couple of days so I just put it up in my second floor work space where it gets 110 when it’s 95 from the sky lights! Solar powered warm box. 72 hrs then I will get rid of the parting board and slick it up for the second side.

Isn’t summer over now? It’s the middle of October.

Halloween is when the switch gets flipped for cooler weather on On Shore Lift! looking forward to it! I’m done with summer and off shore breezes and 100 degrees.
