My 30 year old Flashfire worked so well for hunting that my son and a buddy of my wanted one soooo......
Popped the first one last Thurs. night and started the second one Friday noon. Should be done in a couple of days.

So help me understand what I’m looking at.
Just a plain stripper? Nothin fancy?

No sanding just the glass over the wood both sides? Thanks.

I see a Sabot.

You are hammering them out !
It would take me that long to cut the strips, and set the forms.

How much rocker ?

I'll admit, I was baiting Jim. :) Dang close tumblehome. I "cheated" and used as much mohogany plywood as I could, so the chines are planed and fared, but the plywood areas are somewhat faceted. Less work on the inside; scraped the glue and buzzed with 40grit, fill coat and glassed. Aint gonna win no beauty contests, but hey, the 3" waterline down is all that matters right?
Some of the ply strips are 3" and some 1.5"

Jim, did you say you've been using MAS epoxy?

Hi Kent

I purchased some MAS about a year ago, haven't had a chance to try it out.

How about you ?

I really was unhappy with Adtech on my last couple of builds so I tried it. I used medium hardener due to heat of summer. The stuff is awesome!! It's a 2:1 and has NO blush, dead clear, and good wet-out. I am now a fan.
I tried it when it came out 30ish years ago and it sucked, but I guess it's been re-formulated.

I picked up some from a Dealer that was moving, and clearing out his supply. He was also a rebuilder of old Chris-Crafts. If it wasn't good ? He wouldn't have handled it !
Glad to hear you like it !
