    Well I felt it was about time I built myself a fully surf dedicated Superjet that can withstand some big crashes with minimal damage. I wanted to leave as much spare cash aside for mods as I can so I purchased this as a starting point. you may have seen it on trademe a couple of weeks back, I picked it up for a resonable price. I only kept it in one piece long enough to take these photos then It was stripped down to a bare hull.

    For a 12 year old ski it is still in good condition.

    So anyway all my Blowsion parts have been ordered and should be arriving shortly. In the mean time i have been doing alot of work reinforcing the hull. I am using woven glass instead of carbon because the end result will be stronger. The only downside is that it will be heavier aswell but i figure the weight difference wont be more then about 1kg anyhow. I coved the whole join smooth between the top and bottom half with resin and glue powder to give it more strenth and to make it easier to glass over and i also coved the little dip beneth the rim where the hood seal goes so i can bring my glass right out to the edge. il try post some pictures soon. (paula lost the charger for the camera)

    Chirs Hale was doing something like that last time i talkd to him.... I dont know how he is going with it though. From what he said i think he was going to make one similar to the wamilton one he has on his ski.

    Knoxie is running the same hood and nose cone as my ski, its an R&D race setup, but I have filled in the air intake holes at the top of the hood and added some more at the front (behind the pole bracket) so it still sucks plenty of air but gets no water in. It is A LOT lighter than the stock hood.
  18. He's built the mold and i think he's making hoods now.

    I got the reinforcing done on the first side last night it swallowed up nearly a litre of resin. the nose took half a litre. the coving took half a litre also. I will weigh the glass tonight to try get some idea of the total added weight, probably should have done before and after. il find out the weight of the resin too probably written on the tin...
