    I just noticed that typo and fixed it haha. A roll appears to be 70 yards for csm and 50 for 1708. which judging by what you just said is way overkill and I can cut back.. a lot

      I'm having problems uploading pictures, so they're all in my google drive. I found the original ones from when I inventoried everything originally.

      Today I took all the foam that I ripped up the other day and loaded it into 2 trashcans which must have weighed nearly 100lbs a piece. Then I started ripping into the rest of the starboard side stringer/foam, the next bulkhead, and the box thing on the side. There ended up being a lot of standing water under all the foam which was startling. I am busy this weekend, but next week I should be finished ripping everything apart and start grinding/sanding. Ill likely get the wood the following week and cut everything to fit. After that Ill see how finances work out for the glass and resin. My local marina can get resin, however it was going to be $300. So ill order from us composites unless i find something else somehow

          I called another local marina over the weekend and got a decent price, 1 gallon for $38 which works out to $190 for 5 gallons. They had 2x 1 gallon cans in stock, so in a bind that will work out decent as well. However I will still be ordering from us composites as everyone suggested. I haven't done any more work yet, other things popped up (as they always do) When it comes to sanding my brother said he would help, so that will go quicker. just need to finish stripping the big stuff.
