Re: Beach Cats in Rehab!

Thanks fellas!

Look, at the end of the day this stuff is really not that hard...at least if you don't expect absolutely pro-perfect results. It seems a lot more daunting than it really is.

I'd never laid up fiberglass, I'd never repaired gelcoat cracks, I'd never painted a boat, I'd never done any of this stuff. And if I can do it, believe me, you can.

The other question is how my work will hold up. We'll see. But it ain't too bad for a newb.

I'll finish up the rudders/tiller this weekend and will then be ready to launch her. I'll put the pics of that (along with the inevitable BFS that will occcur) and the final tally of hours and dollars spent in the next week or so.
