Well, I am very happy to announce a new addition to the fiberglass hull lineup at ML Boatworks. I acquired the Vision 20 and 40 outboard tunnel molds from Shawn and they arrived today! Been cleaning them up, only to find a mint surface under the paste wax layers. I am working on prepping them for semi permanent mold release now, and should be ready to start tackling the waiting list soon! I am really happy to finally be offering race tunnels again, and the fact they have won numerous races at the international level is even better! More soon!

Well, I cannot say I am not very very happy with the first 20 and 40 bottom layups. Both done with carbon reinforcement. Stain Harness H4 carbon to be exact. This has made for a very very strong, and light bottom. I am also now using Duratec Hi Gloss gel coat additive, and I cannot say enough about the results. A more durable gel coat, that will polish up like a mirror. The pics below are before any kind of Polishing!  I cannot wait to start on the top decks for these two hulls. Here are some pics:

I am really happy with the results thus far. I laid up a complete carbon fiber 20 hull, that I am classifying as a "Mod 20" hull per Shawn's weight recommendations. I also did a white 40 carbon fiber cowling made over the weekend. Next up is a 40 size yellow deck and cowling with carbon fiber. The materials for starting that color arrive today. Lots going on, but I am really pleased with how well these molds were made, and how well the boats lay up in them. So easy to work with. Also, the sponsons laid out very squarely on the Granite table, so I know this thing is going to be very very square, which is very important in the grand scheme of things!
