Well, got the hull ready for glass, mixed up some resin and 1/4 inch chopped strand to make a good radius in the pad area. Gunna start under the deck with some 1808 in the morning. Talk about a tight space to work😬😬

Back working on the vector, started with core on the wings and going to move to the pad next. I have some spots i need to patch that i sanded out because they looked a lil dry but i think once i patch them the core will bond nicely to the hull. Only problem im seeing so far is that theres a hook on the second set of lifting strakes from the pad, i think from sitting on a crappy trailer with short bunks and rotten core for so long. Looks to be around 3/16 or so deep starting from the back of the boat to about 3ft forward. Core gets layed over that set of strakes so im hoping i can put enough wait on it to get the boat to sit flat on the jig in those areas
