    ...Both pieces are bonded in with that pink bedding compound also, if that's what you are also asking. the bedding compound, as it comes out of the five gallon bucket is white, but Gio used red M.E.K., so it ends up being pinkish after mixing. Generally speaking red catalyst is used for resin you use in glass lamination, clear catalyst is used when used in gelcoats, so it doesn't affect the color.

    It was measured for a 25", I remeasured after the bracket was out of the way, it does need to come up a little. From the top of the bracket to the bottom of the hull its 25+ inches. And with the adjustment on the motor it should sit good.

    The layers of coosa were screwed together while curing. The Pink stuff is Arjay bedding compound. It is white with red MEK. And Yes Gio does very neat work, so at every step of the way people can see how neat its done.

Gio's work shows no glossiness at all, which is excellent. One of my pet peaves, when my guys were glassing in stringers and/or floor panels, was to first make sure that the empty hull was not twisted on its carts/cradle/floor. Easy to forget this & fudge-up. In Port St. Lucie, who are you sourcing your Coosa board from & what density Coosa did you go with, for the transom? Composites One, Merritt Marine Supply, or?
    We get supplies from Merrits in pompano. I hear Fiberglass Florida has good prices too. The transom and knees are 2 layers of 1" 26lb coosa, the decks are 3/4 14lb coosa.

    As far as the extra resin, we rib roll it out really good, squeegee when we can, use putty to help hold air bubbles at bay and put 1.5 oz mat over most things to absorb any excess and blend it all together. By the time you put the mat down and roll over it once, it's pretty much wet out. It also makes grinding and cleaning it all up easier.

    ...Can tell all this from the photo's and it all looks so nice this way. This is the way its supposed to be done, that so many laminators don't do. Gio knows his s h I t. Excellent job.

    ...As a "general" rule on a new hull outboard rig job, I have always used this input, with proven success. Water rises 1'' off the trailing edge of the boat at 60 m.p.h., for every foot of setback. This has always worked on every one of the "hundreds" of single, twin, triple, and quad outboard boats that I have overseen rigging on. Admittedly, I have never rigged a V-6 outboard boat that went as slow as 60 m.p.h., but this gives you a proven starting point for installing a bracketed boat, or an engine bolted directly to the transom. Hope this helps.

    That's exactly what I heard. I'll measure it again with more specifics. The bracket is 18" plus the 6" or so below the bracket. Then the approx 4" of adjustment on the motor bracket, I would have a jack plate for more adjustment. So I think itll fall into a good height.
