don't overfill in enclosed spaces.will pop your boards loose.Might have to up heat.They say you save money by building your own boat.I Fibreglassed my boat in January so went thru 3 semi loads of wood for heating in boiler.At 1400.bucks a pop-wheres the savings?Sure is fun tho.
Don't plan on reusing the mix container as that stuff gets really sticky and hard to get out of containers when cured.Not sure what happens in colder temps but foam in a can won't set up too much.Don't glue yourself together if you get it on your clothing

How come I didn't see this before? Looks like an interesting read to make spray rails or anything else curved on the Bo-Jest.Thanks Ray
After 1 year of use,zippers are coming a little loose from the sailrite fabric so HH-66 glue is not permanent .Had sewed with ordinary thread also and treated with HH-66 glued but still only held one year.Can't afford sailrite sewing machine so will have to hand sew zippers.
:D Last summer,I went out to large open area on Lake of the Woods ,With 4 and 5 ft rollers.Tried to heel "Chug" over by steering in all directions.Had full load of 20 gals of water and 20gals of fuel.Like riding in a bobber.Don't need ballast-maybe in rougher water.Need spray rails tho.Plus ,going w...
