We've got a product designed for 2:1 by volume cartridges that is 100:45 by weight. (though formulated with a much smaller tolerance than your marine stuff)


Always worth remembering that: the "retail" resins like SP106 aren't as good as the commercial ones like say Ampreg in many ways, but they are more tolerant of the hamfisted (like me!). And as alstorer says the density of resin and hardener varies so weight!= volume and you need to do the mixes correctly. In my messy cramped and untidy workshop I'm not sure scales would survice so I use SP106 rather than something theoretically superior because it won't be superior with me using it and I don't think scales would survive!

Not much to say there really.  Its really slow going. But after weeks its starting to look a little better.  Going to be a slog but Im keen to preserve as much original boat as possible.

Centreboard case is on the home straight now.  real labour of love to save this old wood,  would have been much much easier to knock a new one up on the table saw.



and the boom is now plugged and corners remade.

Nice project, but would it not have been easier to replace the decks while you were at it?
