Yip looking and seeing is one thing but looking and seeing beyond whats actually Partly hidden ,, glass when it starved of resin takes a little recognizing also the glass that was used and the core how its sheared and broken and the lack of the Home made core bond in places ! I suspect the core bond was made on sight using mostly Q cells and little else which accounts for its very poor stickablity to the core and also to the glass !! dry with little resin to hold onto anything !! Plus couldn't see any resin penetration so core may not have been wet when it was laid on to the core bond . All this takes time to search not only what's in plain sight but what's still on some things and not on others !! the core shearing off core bond is really bad and why I also suspect it was loose before the cyclone finished it ! true core bond rips and tears the core to bits because it never lets go !! same with glass directly into the top pf foam core its never peels off it also tears and wrecks foam core because the resin penetrates into the very fine foam bubbles and strips a layer of foam !!and the density of the foam core is highly questionable also specially for the hull sides and bottom !
How do I know all about all of this ??< because ive laid many many square meters of most of the different foams on the market and all kinds of Balsa as well over the years hulls decks etc on 150 foot boats and small boats and everything in between , power boats and yachts !

I saw her down when I brought my boat back home from Irma. She sat in the water a long time. This is 1500’ from my house.

The story is true. Her lift folded over And she just got beat up into it. It’s not In the pic as they had to move it to the other side of the house to be able to tie it to the sea wall.

"engines were pickled" How much is a pickled engine worth? Also, are we talking Kosher Dill or Bread and Butter? Might effect the value.
