Re: Tape and tack 16 gauge steel RowMe?

Thank you Kevin. MIG is not an option because I will not weld in my garage due to fire danger and I have no fume extraction in there MIG is not safe for me. As a matter of fact I will not flux core weld in my backyard right now as we are going into a red flag fire warning this weekend in Northern Ca...

Re: Tape and tack 16 gauge steel RowMe?

$77, 80#, 4x8, 16 gauge, mill rolled, got home from Moose Metal and unloaded by myself safely, that is heavy, I don't know that vessel Magneto will float. When I get RC X1 40" long skiff plans from Gayle I need to build a FreeShip model and let it calculate weight and displacement. 😳 Pulled out my L...

Re: Tape and tack 16 gauge steel RowMe?

Thank you Kevin that is really good advice. I was thinking 1/2 of a 4x8 sheet 16 gauge was to much to buy but I like your suggestions not to use to small of pieces for practice and to use run on and run off blocks. Thanks for telling me 50-100 hours of hood time too. I just got the email from Gayle ...

Re: Tape and tack 16 gauge steel RowMe?

Re: Console Skiff build

Hi @watkibe, I read your thread and looked at your pictures, nice build, I hope you are feeling well again. I am finished with my RowMe build, bought Power Skiff 14 plans thinking I wanted to build a V hull but don't like all the 1/4" plywood planking so I am noodling around the Console Skiff again....

Re: RowMe

Vessel Astera is ready to splash but waiting for a little warmer weather because doggies and me will get all wet. This high pressure will break soon, the frosty mornings will go away for a while, we'll get some rain, the migrating fish will come into the rivers and we can get out on the river and wo...

Re: RowMe

3 coats of Pettite EZPoxy Hatteras White on side planking now, 1st coat on inner hull, sand, roll and tip 2nd coat on inner hull today. It takes 3 coats, from what I read it is a disaster if the coats are to heavy so I am rolling and tipping with a brush. It takes 2 days for coats to dry to sand and...

Sport fishing for Dungeness crab opens in 2 weeks stamped new ID plates for traps and added 3x5 trailer buoys to identify as sport trap in case of whale or turtle entanglement. I cast that anvil in college 44 years ago :D

Re: RowMe

Sanded 220 grit, dry wipe dust, wet wipe real mineral spirits, rolled and tipped 2nd coat. It almost looks like a spray job. I think I like Pettit EZ Poxy better than Interlux Brightside or 2 part epoxy paint.

Re: RowMe

I was walking my dogs to the park and Davey Tree guys were having a hell of a time putting this American Elm through the chipper it was squealing and smoking. In California elms pick up silica from the soil and it will dull any steel edge very fast. I brought them back a hand turned Chinese Elm mall...
