Spent Saturday morning throwing a thick coat of new bog down on it. Then last night did an hour or so sanding it back with a 40 grit on the orbital sander to get a good rough shape in. Am happy with how it's working so far. Will need a few layers before its perfect.

Plan is to have the bog and fibre glass done by end of November... then December to re assemble

FFS long story short spoke to a fellow in know in my small town about how I was rebuilding a jet boat. He then mentioned he had one for sale lol went and looked at it and it's the style of hull I'd prefer and it's on a good trailer with a jet unit lol. 

So this might end up for sale after fibre glass stage cheap cheap cheap.

So got one side done this morning but unfortunately ran shy on resin for the other side this was 1.15pm today. Called the fibre glass place in mt Wellington to see if open yes they were till 3pm. It's now 430pm and I'm back at home with more resin and about to crack back into it. I live about 1 hour 15 from fiberglass shop. 

I also bought some white marine paint whilst I was there.
