Re: Klondike Build

Steve, Glad you got the winter damage and mess cleaned up. Hopefully there will be no more of that. 😎 It looks like there is quite a bit of work to be done for a March launch. But you seem to be able to get a lot of stuff done in a short time. 😳 Impressive how many skills you need to build a boat of...

Re: Squirt Finish Line

Hi Jim,

I filled the seams with epoxy and microbaloons, also. But I added some white pigment to the mix.
The seams are holding up great and I have hit some hard waves with my Squirt.
How about a picture Jim? ?☺

Re: Squirt in Minnesota

Hi All, It has been a while since I posted but I need to stress the importance of the skeg design. When I made my skeg, I made it to look nice.(first picture) I ended it 18 inches from the transom and at its highest it is 1 ¾ inches. My original design created to many bubbles for the prop and the ca...

Mixing hardener

I was consolidating stuff in my garage and I poured two of my Silver Tip Epoxy hardeners into one bottle. Then I noticed one was slow hardener and one was fast hardener. :oops: They both have the same mix radio with the resin. Will this cause me any trouble the next time I use it? Thanks for the hel...

Re: Prayer Request for vupilot

Get well soon, Chris. Our prayers are with you.

I don't know what what my Squirt would look like if not for you. The world needs you vupilot. :D

Re: Squirt build, in northern Norway

Great setup you have, Fred. Out of the boat house and into the water. :)
It sounds like your 15hp has plenty of power and the right prop.
Your tilting explination was right on. :D Sounds like you and your son have it dialed in.

Re: Where to find deck planking for squirt

I did the same except I used a bandsaw and then planed them all the same thickness. They ended up about 5/16" thick. I think Bill's 3/16" is I better thickness.

Re: Squirt in Minnesota

Matt, your boat flies! Great pictures.

Thanks for the info on the props. I might switch to a 4-stroke also. I'm debating on a 15hp or a 20hp. The old 2-stroke isn't running the best and a 4-stroke is so much quieter. And no mixing oil and cleaner. etc.....

Re: Squirt in Minnesota

Haven't checked the top speed yet. It seems fast though sitting down so far. I had a 5hp Suzuki years ago and it was a good motor. I'm interested in how your motor works with the larger prop. 30% larger is quite a bit. You might be passing every boat on the lake. 8)
