I made an end pour in the bow of a Chesapeake 16 last night. its up on end in my shop, leaning about 70 degrees (angle not temp). I poured in the 8 oz. thickened. I can see where it will tie the two sides and really strengthen the tip, but it only got up to the hull panel seam. The book only calls for 5 inches down the bow to be filled, and I will say that I surpassed that. should I have leaned the boat further back? should I make another pour to fill in the knee? I don't want to add weight, but I would assume that this is the point that will absorb a lot of abuse. any advice would be much appreciated, thanks for all the help so far too!
