Yea, we tried one. While it may technically have a 3" cutting path, in practice it seemed more like 1" to me. The video you posted looks just like the experience I had-painfully slow and not very fair. On a peeler the guides are outside the cutterheads so you can use the full width of cut on each pass, with almost no overlap. It's much faster, just look at the vid I posted and compare it to the one you posted. But, if you're happy with it that's great. Different strokes for different folks and all that. You couldn't use a proper peeler on that job anyway, since you had already ground a bunch of blisters on it.
Can you talk some more about your plan for building the sugar scoop? I like to see other people's approaches to an extension. Always a fun project!

We're still working out the process for that one.

Just curious why the ground blisters would be a problem... the guides?

Re: Old Warhorse in the Shop for a Makeover...

Ok, we've progressed across the board with the boat. The bottom is pretty much ready for barrier coat, once the scioop is tied in. Here are some shots of the scoop work:







and






We did change the curvature on the scoop today so it doesn't look so fat. More to come.



Oh, another shot of the hull at present.

Kudos. Very. Nice. Work. You took a beautiful design and made it more so with that sugar scoop.

My Son Chris did a nice job on the shaping of that from the rough stage, especially considering it was his first real glass work. That rolling bevel is within one degree at any point along the slope on both sides and from both planes.

Re: Old Warhorse in the Shop for a Makeover...

I guess we did something right. Touch Of Gray took the boat out racing this past weekend and won overall.

Re: Old Warhorse in the Shop for a Makeover...

Great work!

I have a question - did you gelcoat the bottom after repairs or simply applied epoxy barrier/primer and painted?
