  1. Sticky: Final Pictures

    Well, I found the tank matt from heaven. 1/4" thick rubber just like the one that was in there except one piece. The negative, weight. I think it weighed close to 7 pounds. Not that much...

    In the beginning - I was dreading this job. In the end - I am glad I did it. Thanks to VERN for all the advice and coming up with the original repair concept. I did already have stress cracks on this...
  4. Sticky: A little paint for the Anal ones

    I finished up by sanding the surface with 80 grit and then grabbing a can of grey primer and hitting the new surface with a coat of paint. Doesn't match, but I hate that epoxy yellow. Next an new...

    Almost done. BTW - I lightly sanded between steps and then cleaned the surface with acetone prior to laying the fiberglass. You should do this for every step other than the first fill over the...

  9. Sticky: Next fill the Void with Syrofoam

    I wonder if my wife will miss the cooler :)??? You have to fill the void from the cut feet with something. I rough cut the syrofoam and then hot glued them into the hull just to hold them in place....
  10. Sticky: Cutting out the feet

    What VERN didn't say is that the feet are glued into the hull. One came out easy and the other was a Bit*&. Get the prybar ready, but only pry on the inner hull - not the outer. I used a dremel and a...
  11. Sticky: I really think this should be a sticky in How to!...

    I really think this should be a sticky in How to! So, while I am buffing the butt :shock: of my ski I see these stress cracks that run longitudinally with the ski, but there is one spot right by the...
