came off the molds

How screwed am I I just noticed the I've come off a couple of my molds
I thought the flex was caused by the design in my football from removing to much wood sanding it
Can I place so a couple of shims to firm it up or should I glass the way it is?

Thanks for the help

Re: To Double layer the bottom ?

Jim
I was wondering when you do the double layer, when do you add it?
The same day you glass the first layer or do you wait?
I plan on doing both sides as may have over sanded making the pattern on my Nomad
Thanks for your help Randy
