A3 - modifying the nose

Nothing new here as I prefer the stainless pin method for front cowl mount. The tip of the cowl gets cut off & 'glassed to the hull while also extending the tip of the nose past the canards like the real boat did. Hardwood ply is added to the cowl front & reinforced with carbon fiber from behind. Then it is drilled from the front for the pin & the area under the part cut from cowl is resin filled to make it solid & lock in the pin. Also 12 oz. of lead chips were added in with the resin filler for help balancing the hull later.
