I purchased 43 yards of Xynole from Raka for my Bluejacket 25.5 . I never measured how much was left over but the amount was some number of yards. Forum posters say to make sure the Xynole is shipped on a tube as folded creases can be a pain to work or iron out. Raka shipped mine rolled on a tube.
I didn't document the epoxy quanity used for Xynole lamination thus speculate about six gallons. Ed put Xynole in the anchor well for abrasion resistance and I shall follow his lead. On the deck and pilot house roof, 6oz fiberglass will be used.
Last Thursday with Ed was quite the day as I enjoyed my first ride on a Bluejacket. Underway this vessel had no bad manners. Entering and departing plane was spooky as the bow raised only slightly in comparison to other planning boats I have ridden. In fact running around 10 knots the helmsmen played with the throttle and the crew would independantly assess whether the bow was raising thus indicating planning was starting.
Ed's boat is a work in progress with accent colors, rub rails, finalizing the waterline, etc. yet to come. In fact, the fuel tank has some odds and ends to complete so a six gallon tank was used and fit nicely in the engine well. Using about 1 1/2 gallons an hour this six gallon tank served Ed well Thursday and Friday. His boat was professionally painted with Awlgrip thus has a spectacular finish. Shortly after tying up at a fuel dock/restaurant, two individuals arrived on the scene with many questions about the boat and voiced their admiration of her lines.
Yup, Ed's photo documentation has been invaluable to the Bluejacket community. I have avoided much protracted pondering by referencing his photos. Ed has been a trailblazer for us all.
Some good and bad news. My wife Ann had her first Bluejacket ride on Friday and really, really liked Ed's boat. The bad news. "Dave, can't you speed up the build so we can enjoy the boat"?
