Re: 99 Explorer 19tv restoration question

Thanks Fallguy,

That is a very clear explanation and makes perfect sense. Hoping to get it glassed in this week and go for the flip. Still trying to figure out the best way to do the flip.

Re: 99 Explorer 19tv restoration question

Thanks fuzz,

Re: 99 Explorer 19tv restoration question

Got a question,

Should I go ahead and glass the deck in before flipping?

When I glass the deck to hull should I tape the sides before or after the main laminate?

And the deck is solid as a rock!!

Re: 99 Explorer 19tv restoration question

Well I dipped it in the lake today. Just wanted to take pics for comparison, looks like I’ll have plenty of freeboard. Will test with weights after setting up the deck.

Re: 99 Explorer 19tv restoration question

Any tips on getting them darned air pockets from the corners, this 12 oz moves way easier than 1708. Seems like I get it flat and come back and it’s popped back up. I’ve tried bubble busters and it seems to just move the weave. I’m doing wet on wet and most of my problems are coming from the outside...
