    gpr repair

    hi oldman i am repairing the hull using a resin that is made over here in the uk called sp106 that is well matched to smc repairs.it is usable with carbon ,kevlar and all forms of fibreglass. i have ground into the cracks from the back and stepped the grinding a half inch at a time so that each layer is an inch wider than the previous until i have only a very thin layer left.Thin enough to see light through.I then applied thin layers of glass and kevlar making sure to check weave orientation, layed 45 degrees to previous layer etc.i continue until i reach just above the original surface level then finish with a brushed layer of resin.\i then wait for a total cure then flip the piece over and grind the thin layer that was left previously and apply two or three layers to finish. will follow with pictures as soon as poss.
