Completely out of chronological order, but this is how my extra layer of hypalon went down on the bottom of the tubes, wear patches were applied and rub strakes put on.

I tend to beach a lot here on the West coast to harvest clams, mussels and oysters so any extra protection is useful.

As far as tips go.....

Employ your most trusted but borderline helpful mate that is well into his cups to take on the most important aspects of the project.

After he has finished letting fireworks off on your front lawn.....

Review the plan several times speaking slowly and using a Power Point presentation when necessary to highlight critical aspects of the project. Lacking a computer, a napkin from last nights take out and a borrowed pencil will suffice.

Tape off the area were the hypalon and wear patches will live. Sand down the area within your taped off bits and wipe down with toluene twice.Do the same to your patches. Mix and apply 2 thin coats of your horribly expensive 2 part glue that you bought from Zodiac...

Next focus your mate on the task of applying the patches, make no sudden moves, approach in a friendly manner...

Roll all patches till your arm falls off the pass roller to your mate.

There is a Zodiac Milpro dealer close to me and they supplied me with all the odds and ends. Great service and a fascinating place to tour but the pricing is shocking....

Oh dear.... that does sound like the same breed of glue I was using....

Mixing and applying the glue stresses me out for a number of reasons, applying two cans in a row seems to be pushing my personal limits.

More power to you!

Ummm.... by the way. What are you up to that eats ups that much glue?

Don't want to dis-rail your post so just a couple of pix..
I'm putting FC470 spreedtube kits on a Avon CRRC 4.5., along with large wear panels under the MBT (main buoyancy tubes).

Cheers

Wow....

I had no idea that you could even do that. That is a serious boat you have there, that looks great!!!!

Your project makes my gluing adventures look infantile!!

Is there a thread I could follow on your build? I'd be very interested in knowing how you made it all come together.
