Taz's Phantom.

Taz,

Last chance to see your Phantom in her former glory. Nav lights off today, emptied most rubbish out including interior trimmings. Tommorrow Trim tabs, seats, fuel tank and bow tank out. De stickering Sunday!!!

Regards Matt.

Brian,

Taking a gamble, going to race OCR A Class with a 140HP. Trying to make boat as light as poss!! Should be great in the rough, but will be disadvantaged in the smooth. Hoping for a really rough season!!!

There is damage to the rear driver's side, but only cosmetic. Believe Taz used to run a XR2 on this one, could be wrong though.

Only gelcoat damage, easily fixed. No apparent damage to fibreglass inner skin.

Quite normal for a P20, we were forever patching up the back corner on ours. Rendall Brothers did theirs first time out and had to return it to Steve for repair. Later ones built for OCR racing had additional strengthening built in by Steve.

As I remember it, it certainly 'looked' like more than just a gel failure.

The failure went well into the laminate, and was I think, both below, and above the rubrail.

I have enclosed pics of damage. I am not an expert on fibrelass work, but am convinced that this is on minor damage. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Any advise greatly appreciated.

Thats a scratch compared to what ours looked like after hitting a cruiser wash in Majorca at 70mph.

[QUOTE=Taz;99623]Can be repaired gav qouted for it at one point. QUOTE]

should repair up ok, just make sure that you check the inside laminate by removing any flocoat and by removing all the cracked gel from outer hull. In any case i would certainly reinforce the inside rear quarter. be sure to check around the join from chine box to topside as this is where if anywhere there will be glassfibre stress fractures.......

good luck
