Honda Formula 4 Stroke Repairs

Pole position –  X – Pole

The damage shown here occurred in a battle for one of the buoys at the Swansea GP 2004, a matching split of about the same size also ran down the chine.

The same area after the damage was repaired

While we were replacing the floor, seat mounting and repairing damage to the bottom of the hull it was discovered that the main floor supports had rotted and needed to be replaced.

New floor supports fitted and glassed in place; the white you can see is flowcoat, which is put on to protect the new laminate.

This boat also had its main bulkhead smashed and more deck damage in the British GP at Plymouth 2004, which we replaced and repaired in time for the last race of the season at the Southampton Boat Show.

The off white area is delamination of the hull caused by contact with another boat. We had to remove the front floor to get at this damage. We found that the main longitudinals under the floor were rot so we fitted new ones and a new  floor at the same time. Nov/Dec 2004 refit.
