    Well, I bought a cheap 750, but after a short while found the hull had a huge crack going along the front bond line and up the top of the nose....

    .....It was cheaper to buy a better hull than to get it repaired, here is the new one, just needs a couple of Fibre repairs and then painting....

    And here is the shortened pole beside the old pole, new pole courtesy of Wingie :D .....

    ....And here is the engine, pretty much standard, am going to have the head shaved and advance the timing, but first the hull needs to be finished.

    Just finished the glassing on the bottom (thanks Wingie). There were a couple of scrapes and also wanted to make it a bit stronger.
    A layer of glass on the bottom and some cool fibreglass powder that looks like cocaine :lol: over top.

    All ready for sanding on the weekend. I am hoping to get all of the glass sanded down and some of the paint prep sanding done this weekend. Finally feel like I am getting somewhere with this :D
