    Project Updates

    Hey guys,

    Got this ski in November/December of 07' here are a few pics of when i started and all the way to where i am now.

    a week after i got it


    here is the motor and all its carnage


    i decided to tear down the whole ski, including all the decals, bilges and basically everything

    as of last week, fairing/sanding






    and the bilges after some major, major cleaning


    here is post Bilgekote his afternoon im interested to hear what you guys think of this mostly.....








    tell me what you guys think so far, still a long ways to go, and i dont have any current pics of the ski w/o the decals i only have the hull being sanded.

    interested to hear everyones opinions

    Looks fantastic! I think I'll be getting some Bilge Kote as well. Looks really nice!
    Is that epoxy resin you used on the bottom of the hull?

    Can the bilge kote be sprayed?

    it says on the can you can spray it, you will have to thin it down a lot i would bet, brushing it wasnt that bad, and i used West Systems Resin and slow hardener with their lightest filler made for fairing, its amazingly light, and its tough enough to withstand a beating from what i have heard at my marina, its what we use, i hope it works out haha.

    I'm using West Systems 105 epoxy resin and 206 slow hardener. Its kind of decieving stuff. It doesn't have an odor, but it will mess you up! Need lots of ventilation! I was seeing weird color swirls in my peripheral vision.

    haha, i have never heard that, i lay it on and leave the garage. The only thing i have against West sytems is it blushes, and it makes that a major pain to paint over without sanding, but i rarely do that.

    glad to hear that someone else is using the bilgekote, if i could offer some advice if i were you i would hit the exposed fiberglass weave a lot with simple green or some heavy degreaser, i had a problems with a lot of residual oil hanging out in the weave of the fiberglass.
