    i was mocking up my skin and form over the weekend, had the skin pinned in place and was trimming the belly for the lower fin, when the knife slipped and i received a squirter cut that needed a trip to the E.R., 7 hrs later things were really dried and some twisting along the belly line. is this a total loss? or something i can fix?

    Sure , it’s fresh and can be hydrated even older mounts can but they get a little stiff and can be harder to work with.
