Boat back were she belongs.it was my first attempt at grp and was a bit of a rush job as i was trying to get some use through the summer.i did enjoy doing it and now know the condition of the boat.job took 2 1/2 weeks to do after i got my sight back (pic 1).moral of the story if you've never worked with grp before,have a go.if i would have had to pay labour im sure it would have been a right off.O and don't use a angle grinder near a vapor filled fuel tank !!!!!!!!

Really sorry re your accident and hopefully face and boat are now recovered.

Was insurance involved? Did the assessor determine the likely cause of the accident?

Do you have a hunch as to what caused this (static?) Whoops, now see the bit about the angle grinder near the tank!!!!

I was thinking about using fuel bladders myself so as to limit air/fuel mixing. Would these be safer?

Regards

Not sure whether to call you lucky or unlucky.
Hope you and boat are now fully recovered.
