Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Each layer of biax wraps successively further around the leading edge, so it is double thick.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Old faithful. This meter pump dispenses 105 and fast hardener in the proper ratio as fast as you can crank the handle. This is our 3-4th one, earlier models eventually became too caked with epoxy to function anymore. It has dispensed at least a thousand gallons in its life.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Is the rudder or any other part of the hull getting the same (uni) treatment?
