Congrats on the launch! The boat looks great. Maybe I'll see you out on Raccoon some day this summer.

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

It's a lot of fun when you roll that first coat of epoxy on and see what the wood is really going to look like.

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

I have two routers. One is 100 years old. The other one plugs in and makes me really nervous. I always feel like it's in control and not me. Hope your thumb heals well. Your boat is looking awesome!

Re: Squirt with a long shaft 9.9

I'm sure you could add to the height of the transom in the area where the motor bolts on. Maybe a block on top of the transom and laminated on the inside and outside with additional layers of 1/4" or 3/8" plywood?

Re: Aussie Gentry

Glue as in epoxy? Did you mix up a bad batch?

I had one bad batch due to measuring wrong I guess. It was really frustrating at the time.

Re: Fisherman

Once you get it screwed and epoxied down it's not going anywhere. The screws will hold it tight until the epoxy cures.

You made your job harder with the dark color. I think it's looking pretty darn good.

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

I could be wrong, but I would think thin veneers epoxied to plywood and totally encapsulated aren't going to move that much. That's a great looking joint.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

The modified winch mount works perfectly. Finally hit the lake both days this weekend. Just need to cut off the excess length and hit it with some cold galvanizing paint.

Next up, finish windshield, upholstery, rub rails, etc. Cup holders are also needed asap.
