Back corner left to grind then side wall and under front deck. I feel like i removed alot of material getting it all ground out even, debating if i should lay 1 or 2 layers of glass threw out the hull before i start rebuilding

Looking really good so far!

I did a full layer of 1708 on the bottom of mine once I completed all the repairs before starting the core work.

Okay, i may go that route. I thought i read somewhere that it was better to lay csm for a mechanical bond to the hull but them again ive read so much that i may be getting something mixed up!
