    Hull Question on FX SHO (Nano Excel)

    Was curious to know if theses hulls are made of a synthetic fiberglass or not. I was told by a fiberglass boat repair shop that he couldn't repair the hull because fiberglass will not stick. He said only one guy around where i live can repair it but this guy charges triple of what everyone else would. Is this true about the fiberglass?

    I just had my pump tunnel repaired by a boat builder, we used west systems 105 epoxy resin with a 205 hardener
    he was also sceptical about this, but after being in contact with a few composite manufacturers they assured us the west systems epoxy would do the job.

    the guy that done my tunnel actually done a test patch, he ground the hull with a course disc, and layed up two 2x2" glass patches, I went round the next day and he couldn't pull it away, In fact the only way he got it off was with a hammer and chisel even then you could see the nano hull fibres tearing away. This was enough to please him.

    its all about the preparation, making sure the surface is ground rough enough for the epoxy to bond, and also make sure the epoxy to hardener ratio is perfect.

    I've since had my FZR out running full noise! and not yet had an ounce of de-lamination or splitting.
    i know some may disagree that a nano can be repaired using traditional epoxy methods but, I've got mine fixed and running up the hours with no problems.

    I have here in Belgium had an accident with my jet a drunken man is our trailer driven where there was extensive damage to my jet that was 3 months old, and 32 hours on the counter now he is almost recovered with epoxy resin I attach tests show perform the smc hull and epoxy had very good adhesion, I even get a warranty on the work at the back was a gap of 20cmx20cm the incompetent side was completely worn to slip from the highway, but now everything is repaired with epoxy with a glass fleece with polyester, there is no adhesion to smc

    Thanks I actually dropped it off earlier today with a guy who said hey could fix it. He did say he uses a Epoxy Resin to fix it. Hopefully all goes good.

    Is there anything special I should look for when I pick my ski up to make sure it was done right?
