Hey Guys,

A good quality plastic weld should hold up to about 80-90% of the original strength. Please note this only works with Linear or Super-linear polyethylene plastics. Some manufacturers use different plasics that are not suitible for welding.

Laser craft in Tuam St. could make a nose cone. Paddle hard Barney (you went well last weekend) but I suggest you don't leave school yet.

There is a nose cone for the Zwo - nose size seem similar to an Amp.

I have had some luck (good and bad) with heating such things in the oven (150 degrees for 15-20 mins) and pressing them onto boats they weren't designed for. The nose cone then gets taken off when cool (and hopefully not too munted) and then refitted after sanding the nose (really rough it up) applying a layer of no more nails and tehn holding th ewhole lot in place with four large blind rivets (2 top and 2 bottom).
