    you’ve got that one right! Everything on a catamaran is at least doubled. I guess it is just to make sure you get really good at the building process.

    Keep up the good work, it is very nice to see you back at it.

    Hi Neil,

    Great to see back underway and making way. Not trying anyone here to suck eggs but have you epoxy and hardener pumps, I am using them with West Systems Epoxy, give an accurate measure of 5 parts resin to one part hardener, it saves a fortune in time, 2 quick squirts of each into a roller tray, mix and you are away. I was working in temps of 40 degrees C at the weekend and you can’t faff around too much with the mix. I don’t have the details to hand at the moment as I am working away from home, new job started today.

    Keep plugging away mate, I finally managed to get some time to get going on “The Black Pig” again.

    Cheers Mate

    Hi Chris
    I did look at these West Pumps early on but opted instead for electronic scales. It’s worked well for me and I can get the right quantities in the mixing pot really quickly. I guess there’s no short cutting adding micro balloons, silica and wood cell though!
    Good luck with the new job mate!
