NP. There was a typo in my last post. You need a fluid tip of at least 0.070 for spraying griptex, not 0.70. Missed a digit. I like a PB 79 gelcoating tip for this.

Not off the top of my head but I can find out for you. She looks kinda like a Cape George but she's not. A little bigger I believe. I'll check.

Forgot to mention flattening agent. Your present skid is probably flat, you need flattening agent to match it. Keep stirring it while spraying or it will separate in the pot and you will have an uneven level of gloss. You can do the flattening agent in just the final coats so you don't need to worry about mixing it in with the griptex, it gets too thick if you do and you have to over-reduce. You probably already know this...

Re: Pics from the Boatyard

Some of you have said you are interested in this sort of thing but just don't want to clutter up the thread with pointless posts. So I guess I'll post a few more just for the hell of it.
Here's what happens when you poke a big hole in the side of a balsa cored hull. It looks much worse on the inside than it does on the outside-kinda like a gunshot wound, the exit hole is much larger than the entry. Ouch! Look at the size of that delam...

And here's a little custom cabinetry in Airex before being glassed in and painted.

Re: Pics from the Boatyard

Here I'll do a series of pics of us cranking out a custom fiberglass foredeck box. This one is molded all compound curves. Solid glass, no core, including the hatch lids. It was a PITA to build. The boat itself had severe problems which aren't pictured here, but the end result is. None of these pics are recent, as I don't want to post recent clients jobs online without asking them.
