I stand corrected. However you should still go lean against a malibu. Whatever they're doing. It's lacking...

I believe you. I was under the impression all tournament ski boats were chopper gunned? My next door neighbor has a Tige, biggest piece of over priced pile of crap I've ever seen. But it has a tower, and a killer sound system and the bladders and all the necessary stuff you need to go boating and he loves it. Throws a fuking wake that'd swamp most boats.  :-[

As a manufacturer, why would you invest the $$$ into a bulletproof hull when 98% of the time the boat will be used in smoother water and at low speeds?  Malibu doesn't claim to make "Hot Boats" only Wave errr, Wakeboarding boats.

Well, I'm finally back at it.  I have a question though, when "soaking" the wood with resin is one coat enough or does it take more to make it "waterproof"?

i see you made some provisions to allow water to flow.  ;)

only thing is that where the boards notch together...did you make a tolerance for the resin?

I think so...  If it's too tight I haven't coated the center board yet so I can still modify that if needed.

Fixed one slot and put a coat of resin on the center board, but...  What happens if you don't use enough hardener?  Will it "dry" eventually?  I think I may have used 1/2 the needed hardener because it is still sticky after maybe 3 hours   :-\

Put a heat lamp on it for as long as you can, and then let it sit overnight. If it isn't hard in 24hrs, probably have to regrind it back out   :(

WHat if I put a GOOD coat on top of it as in when I install it with the cloth in the boat?  Will the new stuff cause the old to cure correctly?

 I think what you did (the slow cure) is a good thing .  I read somewere (when doing mine) that doing this lets the resin to soak into the wood better and gives you a stronger finished product . ;D   If it cures to fast it wont bond well to the wood and might delaminate later.  Not sure on this, just what I heard.  ???

 btw,  nice job !! ;D

In the future if you do it again it just needs heat to help it along a little faster.

Fully cured this morning.   I'm sure the outside temperature isn't helping either.  Today It goes in the boat O0
Then measure and cut the plywood, coat that, glass it in, meaasure and cut the bow braces, glass them in, m&C the under dash board(??) and install, repair seat bottoms (if needed) and glass them in, install carpet, stereo, speakers, replace intake gasket...  I'm sure there is more...   What am I doing here typing?  I have a lot of SH*t to do before I can put this thing back in the water.

Well I got the frame glassed in.   ;D O0



Do I need more than 1 layer of cloth to hold this in?  It feels very solid.
