    Filled a couple sections with foam. Man this stuff sucks grinding. Little smoothing I.T out left to do. Hole saw cut out of the stringers.

    Looks good! Just curious, what was the reasoning behind the foam filling? Was it a structural decision?

    Nice clean work. That foam will add some support to floor, deaden sound and flotation always helps. 2# foam? ;)

    thanks guys. Yes it is a 2 lb foam from Mertons. I am hoping the foam will make the hull sound better in a chop, that's the maIn reason I went with it. This was a suggestion from GM.

    Nice work! Is the Airex transom core overlapping the original core to build it up for the bracket? In post #32 it looks like Divinycell has already been bonded to the transom. You might want to consider giving the top surface of that new foam a coat of resin before the floor goes down just to seal it up. You're doing a great job and that pilot house is going to look perfect when it's installed.

    Ah, I just re-read post #1 regarding the transom. I get it now.

    Thanks Keel! I thought an inch divinicell core on the transom seemed a little light. Saw a lot of boats with inch and a half coosa cores for the transom so wanted to beef it up. Was debating if I should cap off the foam sections, was going to ask. Think I will do that.

    Will the Bruno go in this spring?

    can you give me any info on the bracket? I just picked up a project 20' dynamic composites which I believe to be the Mitchell cove/ CB hull. It was an I/ o but I'm planning either a bracket or transom notch. I'll start a new thread with some pics so I don't hijack your thread. If you have any info on the bracket builder and price I would appreciate the help! Your boat looks beautiful stretched 2'!

    Yup you can cap off the foam sections. I think epoxy {glass optional} is what you want to use. If I recall poly will melt the foam.

    Ya man I’ll send you some info. Got a couple quotes from some other bracket guys too. I also have a template of transom angle, curve etc. will get you this info mid week.

    Cassels, I believe the 2 lb isn’t affected by poly. Thought I.T was other foams that were affected by uncured poly. I gotta look that up. I don’t have any experience with I.T though.

    Here ya go...wasn't sure. Us Composites who sekks it says;
    • Once fully cured this foam can be laminated over with any type of polyester, epoxy or vinyl ester resin without melting.
