Re: Problems with a dark paint color on hull?

Yes you will have problems with dark stains or colors. Epoxy will soften enough to allow the cloth to show the weave. Not immediately but a few seasons in. I have a few natural light finished kayaks in cedar and never a problem.

Re: I guess it's time to come out of the closet!Bartender 24

yes, that caulk is not rated for deck seams. that 4200 is. strange that the Sika would turn to goo though. I had similar looking edges of the deck boards where the LPU topcoat had let go of the epoxy surface below. Not much fun, still cleaning mine up too.

Re: Wake board tower questions

One motor would not be enough. Would hang at least two on there. Think GlenL could do an artists rendering of that?

Re: Ridgid 14" bandsaw

Unfortunately That is pretty much on par for this level of saw. Resawing takes even tension and blade speed along with the table being able to handle the weight of the lumber without blade guides flexing. Sounds like you had all of this going on to some degree. Not sure about your areas Craigslist b...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

That is clear.
I’m sure he doesn’t want to recut a new prop shaft for you. All the places I’ve dealt with have made sure things were right so if it is that kind of business all will turn out well. Is he doing prop too?

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Tom
your 5/32 thickness is great. Just don't want to get a skimpy 1/8. :lol:
That is a pretty good challenge you have for the transom. Mocking it up in some foam insulation board first might help visualize the pieces?

Re: Varnishing Tips

Biggest help in my shop against dust is dampening the floors about an hour before the roll and tip. Also if you are using the Perfection 2 part Varnishes, temps at about 70 degrees work out the best for application time and leveling. The closer to the actual final finish appearance you can get on th...

Nice to see the deck coated showing its true beauty!
IMO you might be better off using a microfiber type filler in those seams for it's adhesive qualities over the silica

Re: Restoring Glory Days a 23' Belle Isle

Glad that worked out. I was reluctant to suggest heat knowing of the epoxy behind the LPU bit couldn't think of an alternative. Interesting but good the LPU did scrape off so willingly. Can't wait to see how this turns out! And your boat on the cover is great statement of your craftsmanship, looks ...
