More grinding

With the hull flipped over it was time to look for spots where the core wasn't fully bonded to the hull. As I suspected the very back where the previous repair job was done didn't bond well. 

I'll be grinding out a 2'x3' section and reglassing.

Flip it

Boat is flipped over. My back is broken. 
Back to sanding and glassing.

Boat Cart

Built from stuff laying around the garage rather than going out and buying a could floor jacks.

Long time no post

Kitchen and living room have consumed all my time. I'll be back at it soon. 

My plan to use Awlgrip isn't going to happen. Instead I'm using Imaron. 

More in that later. 

In the mean time...

Kitchen / first floor remodel has boat progress dead in the water. 

I did check out a couple jet boats while my friend was looking at a motor for his car.

I'm working on some transome knees to hold the fuel tank in place and add some structural support. 

Also my son dropped his stuffed animal in the toilet:
