Seen a pile of shrimp boats here in south LA built ot of this stuff.

Believe. Bill Seemans developed it.

He has done some amazing stuff over at his shop in Gulfport.

He has done some huge resin infused structures there.

Looks like a cool project can't wait to see more.

Was able to put on a good layer of resin on the Cflex ended up going through 8 gallons of resin.

Checked boat this evening after work it has set up it still has some give in the c-flex but the strength and stiffness will come when we lay many layers of glass on it. I will be doing a layer of chop glass matt and woven matt followed by another layer of chop glass and woven followed by one last layer of chop glass matt. lots of grinding in my future but I think it will be worth it in the end

I don't know how much you can get wet out at one time but I would put down as much as you can. If you have a helper use a roller for air bubbles behind you you guys may be able to get all of it layer out in one shot. I'm just thinking that it will minimize some of the sanding between layers.What do you use to prep the fiberglass with after sanding it?

I have been making sure that the last layer I put on is csm because it seems to make it a smoother surface than the heavy woven roven I have. Also if I sand off high spots before laying out more glass I'm not sanding through the woven glass I'm sanding through the csm. I think it would be stronger by leaving the woven intact.

Looks great, keep up the good work

It looks awesome but quite hard for me to understand how you can end up with a smooth and non
wavy bottom.

Started grinding the hull today got the rough spots smoothed out and high spots were taken care of. Filled all the low spots with milled fiber and resin mix. Going to be smoothing this out and filling any more low spots i see. The more we take care of now the less headache ill have finishing the hull for paint.

How will the inside of the c flex be finished?
Curious if you will add more mat and resin.

The inside of the boat will be wet out with resin and lay up some mat. We have been just filling the low spots making sure everything is as uniform as possible before we start laying glass.

Finally Finished filling all the low spots and pulling the highspots back getting the hull looking as good as we can before we start laying the glass. Im getting ready to cut all my glass to the right sizes per dave sintes instructions.

Wow. This is really cool and looks a lot more "doable" for the average Joe than some of the more traditional methods seen on here. What do you think the end thickness of the hull will be after all is said and done?

We have finished getting the low spots filled and high spots pulled in so hopefully we will be glassing the hull this weekend. We have cut all the chopped mat and woven roving to the sizes called for in the drawings and numbered the pieces in order . The boat i do belive is 14 degree deadrise I have talked to Carlton Layton about sintes boats and he has assured me that this will be one of the best riding 25' boats around if I followed dave sintes's instructions. I have alwayse been partial to the E-tecs and i think the new G2 would look good on the back of this boat. Stay tuned there will be more pictures soon with us glassing the hull.
