Default RE: Re - rebuild

Ya the ol turn 180 and gas it - theres your brakes - I have a couple lakes right by my house and a fresh untracked snow makes for a FAST flat surface. Now we just need some snow. I have tried going on ice - but that is REALLY tricky - and it ripped the hell out of my bottom - not my bottom -the boats bottom.
I believe the gasser I have is a 26CC and I also have a cuple ryobi 30 cc's to work with. Ya know the gassers don't interest me as much either for some reason. Awesome on my mt bike ! but I really preffer the scream of the little nitro motors.

I glued the veneer down last night for the topside - tried doing it without slitting it but the 2 direction compound curves kept leaving a buckle in the front and I ended up slitting it in two spots - I used about 1/2 a roll of masking tape 50 lbs of weights a steamer and about 20 clamps and just could NOT Get er flat. Anyways I think I can hide the slits with a stripe or something but would have preffered the nice clean one piece top.
