    Here is a layer of 4oz carbon/kevlar cloth for the bottom and first chine. I got it from local boat wizard Gordie Nash who mentioned this stuff was from the U2 spy plane program.

    I screwed up my materials and wound up without enough slow hardener so we didn't get the peel ply on as planned.
    But here is a couple of fill coats.

    First coat of primer always looks ugly.
