    Gazza, did you forget to pull your bungs out? Like a reverse sinking?
    I store my tinny outdoors, covered with tarps, but always make sure it's tilted up a the front, water may fill it but surely it should also drain?
    Hope it' ok and drys out ok
    Cheers mate

    Hey Muz new stringers i have been holding off on drilling drainage holes untill the whole stringer is glassed in, i messed up

    Recently purchased a new tarp and bought a 20x12 from oz trail tarps, awesome tarp probably the best quality tarp i have bought so far but 20 foot didnt cut it its all i had enough cash for i really needed a 26 foot long tarp boat is 19 foot, the 20 tarp came up short it stretched right boarder line on the transom and 2 foot short at the bow rail

    Where it went wrong the tarp that was barely hanging over the transom had got wet the wet tarp had pulled back between tie down points and the water ran strait down the inside of the transom and filled the boat just really shit luck

    I drilled the drainage holes and let all the water drain out took over 35mins to drain out thru 12mm holes

    On the good side i know my glassed down stringers didnt snap under the weight of all that water bowing the hull and the cavity is water tight lol i am trying my best to see some positive to my f... up

    Doesn't look like any rain from the cyclone like predicted, but sure got some swell, piles of Kelp on the beach, swell huge, water filthy.

    Im probably going to leave the boat and pod untill cooler weather, i can resume glassing the hull with epoxy but working in direct sun in summer beats the crap right out of ya i mean 1h 30mins glassing at 12-2pm in summer and im boarder line vomitting and end up with a huge migrane... not pulling out of the build no bloody way im enjoying it to much but i rather need to look after my self recently went to see the doc after having left chest pains under my arm and around to my lower brest section for 3 weeks

    I want to work smarter not harder and beat my self up.. glassing in winter the days are shorter but i do it piss easy out there in pants and shirt or jump.. in summer wearing a short and shorts my clothes are litterally soaking dripping with sweat i donno how professionals can stand doing it thru the hotter months

    The pod i cant do anything with last glassing session i dropped back to 10mls per litre i was told not to go below 12mls a litre so i feel i am pushing the boundries a bit trying to extend the resin from kicking off i just need more time to work with the resin

    Sold my ER6N today sad day... moved the pod and had a good look at it all that rolling out i done with the metal roller done jack crap

    One long and big air pocket along the edge kind of pissed as i spent so much time rolling all the air out

    What would be causing it, the hot days possibly?

    I am a bit pissed with my glassing weather its the stringers or pod i always seem to get air pockets as the resin is curing i just dont know why
