I also hit the ply with a planer and split it. Did exactly as DrBryanJ, epoxy and a thin bit of ply and clamped it on. If the thin bit gets stuck on just sand it off.

I found a multi tool and a rasp file did a great job trimming the edges flush. The front is a bit nasty. I'll bog it up. Considering using auto wrap vinyl to waterproof it, it's small enough!

I think most people do the "flip" on the side, but I guess the Pee Wee is short enough!

At least you'll have someone to take out in your new boat. Looks nice so far.

Thanks Jim! I stood it up so I could drill holes through the chine/sheers to the skin so I could figure where to put the screws, otherwise it was guesswork

I used body filler aka bog to fill the gaps at front. Didn't turn out as well I hoped to be honest.

What do I work on next?
