CD Noble wrote:Finally getting around to skinning my old Super. Have re-enforced the framework as I found a few bad area's. the previous owner was around 350lbs and cracked a few spars. A friend works with airplanes, restoring old canvas. He suggested we use carbon fiber which is stronger than fiber glass and much lighter. Will be ordering material in a few days and hope to have the boat in the water in a month. I saved the old rotten skin for a pattern so it should not be to hard to make things work. I hope to impregnate the color in the resin and make it somewhat of a camo pattern as I do wildlife photography and intend to use the boat in the marsh and rivers and along the coast. Will take photos and post the process once we get started. Hopefully all will work out.
