Was there significant repair required?
Not really. About 2 hours if I recall. Buly stayed and helped me with the repair. The plane was flying the next day with a much improved aluminum skid pad.

That said, I did have a second incident where the gear was lowered normally on final, but then collapsed with heavy braking.The repairs for this were considerably more extensive involving replace / repair of bulkheads and floor in the nose including larger (taller) vertical bulkheads (NG30's) as recommended by Nat to beef up the nose gear support. I'm not sure if this recommendation made it into a plans revision.

The NG-30s (the big vertical bits you are referring to?) were made a bit taller in the middle in one of the later plans updates, as per the Cozy Newsletters.
I have Aerocanard plans (which don't incorporate the later Cozy revisions), which I updated according to the cozy revisions, including this. Haven't even finished the tub, yet, however.
