Picked up my transom coring, 5 gallons of resin, a roll of 1708, and a bunch of miscellaneous stuff. Should keep me pretty busy over my 4 day weekend

Welcome, Stuart huh! I have been working in Palm city for the last 24 years. Fiberglass Florida for supplies? Thats who I have been using. I know where all those builders are you referenced. Great hull, love to see it sometime. Good luck.

Sounds like a convenient place for resto work HarvestTime. I have never floated my boat but there is bottom paint on it. The paint comes up just shy of 5" in the rear chine corner. I remember hearing that the rear deck on these boats was actually below the water line. Hope this helps.

Yea , fiberglass florida lol

Clam, yea it's my understanding they weren't self bailing decks.
5 inches up the chine seems like alot. I've seen formula 233's at rest and they were about 2 inches above the chine. (No one in it), with a bracket and single 3.3l yamaha f250

Worked on the boat all day today. Spent a couple hours making a really nice template to trace my transom core on. I perferred using the post sheet fiberwood boards over paper or cardboard because it's only $8 , you can grind on it for a very close fit and it's rigid, I will use it later to spec out my cuts on my sheets of glass for the layup as well.

Got the pieces of coring cut as well, and just like the template, they are very snug fitting, close to perfect

HarvestTime what are you using for coring? It looks like two pieces of 3/4"? Looking good, keep at it. The paint on the water line of my boat looks high, but like I said I have never floated mine.

I'm using marine grade pvc board (26 pd density)
For the cost I really like it, bonds well and holds a screw well. Coosa and Penske are not in the budget haha.

I got the transom core bonded into the hull skin, and then radiused the corners for the glass layup. I was really happy with the squeeze put I got bonding the core in. 9 clamps and 35 screws sucked it up niceName:  20151128_150740.jpg

Fiberglass/composites suppliers should all have it. The biggest difference is its pre sanded and the pound per square inch density is different than say the pvc board that sign companies use.
