Fiberglass RC Boat

One of you great customers sent us a series of photos showing his process in making his new RC boat.  I am really impressed with the final product.

From Dave:

Hi, just wanted to say thank you again for your support and awesome products.  This rc yacht was created using 2 layers of 4 oz and 1 outside layer of .75oz,  along with your resins,  fumed silica and glass bubbles.  Great results,  I couldn’t be happier 🙂
