    Not really because the person who own's the boat put the project on hold for now and i see that you are moving right along and looking good

    Really nice work!!!! I was informed the only reason Peter lays up with epoxy is cure time ( more time with epoxy )

    Bingo....With epoxy you can have cure times of hours versus minutes with the ester resins. This allows the time to do the lamination schedule correctly with less margin for error/rework. Also the shrink rate of epoxy is more than 50% less than the typical ester resin. Less shrink means less warp. That makes for a more accurately reproduced part from the mold. That's the benefit to Skater.

    The additional benefits of epoxy over the esters are:

    Better Adhesive Properties, Superior Mechanical Properties, Better Water Permeation Resistance.

    Those are the benefits to the Boat Owner.

    You are doing some very nice work! Keep it up and keep us informed of your progress.

    When I bought my 32 classic I knew the boat was V-E resin which as you know has zero Ethanol issues but played along saying it needed tanks repaired . Bought it cheap

    I get just about everything i need from Douglas Marine / Skater including the Epoxy they use which is Shell and has a very longggggggggg pot life and takes 48 hours to cure and tensile strength is rated very high and using all the latest and greatest composites such as Kevlar ,Carbon Fiber , S-and E-Glass along with Vacum bagging , there is no subsitute other then Epoxy because some fabrics are only designed to be used with Epoxy , as long as they do not have a chop back or (binder) like 1708 .

    Most people think because a boat is Epoxy it is light , not true all resins weigh the same the key is how you use them and as you said the long cure time with epoxy / vacuum bagging I would think give you more time to get things right . With regular Ester resins I'm always in a mad ruch before kick off

    Hi BTR, Hey just wondering about the center ramp, can that be added to a Skater 24 or Motion 25 in order to rigged with one motor? Thinking in a 300xs, I think should be able to reach 80 mph. Your thoughts?.
    Thanks
