Deck after above process. Skier's Choice went to a chopper gun first layer this year now that they have a counter so they can have quality control over this layer. The chopper gun layer makes for a smoother finish when the boat is pulled from the mold.
Another barrier coat for beneath the wven mats coming. They also fill the strakes solid with this stuff for more rigidity.
The hand lay-up with the fiberglass cloth has begun. The white pieces are PVC bord that serves as backing plates where extra material is needed for attaching things.
