Happy Friday!
The crew have the day off today, but yesterday was a busy day of diggging out all of the loose gel and then grinding with the dremel.  Then we filled all of the voids on deck to get ready to roll on new non skid around the entire deck and cockpit.  We also discovered that some of the stanchion bases were significantly cracked, and upon further “digging” found that the raised bases that are part of the build process of the deck are actually mostly gel and that there were voids within them.  Soooooooo, the cracked ones got ground off and we did some glass layups on them to build them up nice and strong.  It’s comforting to know that the stanchion isn’t going to rip out from under you while you’re desperately leaning on it!
