    Re: Triple in a 550

    Thanks guys.

    Updates!
    Reg has been renewed. I also picked up some pretty cool silver carbon look CF #s. I think I'm going to go with an all white paint job with all silver accents. It's funny, I think I posted some 17 reg stickers way back in this thread too...



    Tray Glass!...

    Spent a while sanding and got all the glass cut out. Over different 70 pieces of glass by the time it was all finished. Used the template method + a few extra cuts to get adequate coverage. The bottom and sides of the tray are cut out of 5 layers of 1708 & all of the other pieces are 8.5 oz. Also had some cabosil on hand to help smooth harsh transitions and angles.






    My new epoxy showed up! Always good to grab some extra supplies while ordering from USComposites. That place really has been 1-stop shopping for all of my glassing supplies. Set up a clean place to work & to wet out glass:




    And.....the tray is glassed! So many pieces...I stood up in the tray today and jumped on it a little, feels solid! Having this complete means all of the major glasswork is done. I have 2 or 3 small items left to glass (part of the hood seal lip & battery tray) along with some bodywork, but otherwise I think this is a pretty big milestone. After all that, it's paint, e-box build & then assembly.



    ^^Also in this pic, you can just see the 1/8 npt insert that I added in the left end cap as a hull drain. I also welded two stainless nuts to a stainless plate and epoxied it in the right end cap as a mount for the exhaust flapper. Checking things off the list!


    On another note, I ordered a 660lb capacity hanging scale from Amazon. I'm excited to see what this hull weighs compared to a bare 550sx hull and also see the final weight of the ski when it is finished. Another thing I would like to find is the balance point compared to a 550 & regular 650/750 conversion ski.




    Started the sanding for bodywork tonight...

    What is this? It looks like a stand up jet ski. Do they still make these? I'm gonna go eat a fur burger. Thank you for the opportunity to get naked in public. That was weird. Weird, but amazing.

    Think it'll be to big for the bathtub?

    Hah! On another note - I was getting a little concerned that this ski wasn't going to have enough power...but I think these will help:
