    Thanks. The more I look the more I am seeing what looks like shattered glass. And a discomforting amount of bondo.lol

    I had a surfboard I restored about 20 yrs. ago, I needed a perfect match from left side, so I used striped of window tint film and layer the glass over the Mylar and then trimmed what I needed. It actually came out better than I hoped. I know there is an alcohol based mold release film your can spray over the deck of a good mold, say like Roger's 'Tona, and pull a section and the lay up a repair patch. Not sure if this will help or not? (Sorry Roger for volunteering your hull), but there has to be a Daytona near by to get a copy from? If not I know of a few salvage yards here in Florida, worst case section in a nose deck? Let me know if I can help. Maybe Bill at Southwind might have some ideas?

    I will try and get some pics edited in....the bulk of it is about 14" wide and about 6 or so deep.
    Some of the glass where the bottom transitions to the sponson looks shattered.
    I am gonna try and put some glass on the inside of that first....and then grind out enough that I can add a few layers of cloth over it. There is another smaller shattered spot by the bow eye.
    I hope today to get some heave woven cloth formed to the bow....then I am going to attempt to glass that inside the hole to give me something to build glass off of thats the right shape.Click image for larger version.

    just a quick note, with Mylar, use a heat gun for decal removal, (definitely not the wife, daughters, neighbors hair dryer!!
    You'll need high heat that you can move close towards the shape to get the wrinkles out and quickly away. As it cools, it'll shrink up and conform. Just take your time and go slow with the heat, or you'll blow through the film. If its too chilly, wait for another day. Or start a fire next to the pail of resin, its sure to heat things up, then, and when you collect the insurance money, you'll have cash for a new boat! See, forward thinking.... uh, i think??
