Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Ok, I think I'm resigned to more sanding....but I hope I only have to add resin to the spots where the weave was sanded through not the whole side..right?

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

annnnnnnnnd a question: I have just sanded through my resin into a 2 x 4 inch size of weave. When I put water on it, the weave showing through completely disappears....do I need to add more resin? I know you are going to say yes just so that I can sand some more!

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

I have another question regarding use of poxy seal. I have about a half gallon left and believe I can use it to seal the mahogany planks that have been stained. I believe that it is a good use of the poxy seal (vs CPES).

Thanks in advance,

Steve

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Thanks Bill, I'm being quoted the 1:23:1 for an additional $525. I may go that option as it really makes a much easier fit without modifications to the frames and the motor is almost level with a 9 deg down.

I sure appreciate the feedback.
