Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Bryan, the issue with this hull is that the lowest point is in the cabin. It would be a pain to run the pump hose all the way to the motorwell.

Re: Michigan Mahahini. Paint

Wow nice job on the planking! Really clean seams!

I think you will want some kind of ablative bottom paint. There are a bunch to choose from. It will have to be refreshed every few years.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

One half of the front deck is now glued on finally. Too many weekends with stuff going on lately have taken their toll on my progress lately. It went on really easily with ring shank nails. I had a couple of locating screws but otherwise all nails. I applied the glue, screwed in the locating screws,...

I don't know about you but I'd rather have a bum trailer fender than bum pee in my boat.

Re: Michigan Mahahini. Paint

On the System Three WR-LPU can it says something about how months of constant immersion can lead to paint failure (I'm paraphrasing). It's what I used on the bottom of my hull and It hasn't seen water yet. However, my understanding of that wording is don't use WR-LPU and expect to leave it in the wa...

Re: Utility build

What I meant was just tilt the motor down while you have it parked. Then raise it back up whenever you move it. A side effect will be that all the water will for sure drain out of the motor.
