I have a pretty good idea of how the front will look the back end is a diffrent story. I'm thinking mostly flat deck with small sidewalls and two footholes below the deck at the stern.

Got a pretty good pile of extra fiberglass pieces below!

Anybody ever lighten the hood? This thing weighs a ton!

Tonight I prepped and glassed a bunch of little parts as well as the bow to nose transition. I ended up having to use a little foam, but it was necessary for as short as I am making this thing. I just laid one layer over the foam and I will vaccum bag a few layers over that once it is dry. I also bagged the inside of the bow and the chines(?). I also worked on setting up the pump/stern/deck. It's wild to put the ride plate on and see how much I took off. I will have to remount the rear pump bolt. I chased out the cracks and filled/glassed them on the upper hull. I also put my final layer of glass on the pole. I think 3 should be enough. This is ALOT of work, but I work in small 1.3oz increments of epoxy to avoid waste, and that helps keep me from burning out.

As a side note I found and epoxy accelerator that I use for floor systems and I add about 2 drops per oz and it has about the same pot life and but sets up in about 2hr. (so I can pull tape or turn off the vac and pull plastic) makes it easier to move stuff before I go to bed.

Got the front pretty well figured out. I think it turned out pretty good I just need to fill and glass the inside and I'll be ready to move to the back.

I need help tuning this thing. I think it had a keihin 40mm carb. Drilled stock waterbox. 5 inch extension in stock pipe. 1 degree timing advance.a valve in the water line to dry out the pipe.

When I ran it before it was fast on the top end but low to mid was lacking. Any easy ways to get more grunt?
