A friend did that to his trailer fender too. He just cut the bent section off at an angle. Then cut the other side to match, never would have known if he didnt point it out.

Re: Michigan Mahahini. Paint

Yes, you can use topside paint if the boat will not spend more than a few days in the water at a time. If topside paint spends too many days submerged in the water it can start to bubble.

Re: a couple questions about sissy do plans

The carbon paper works fine but you can also use a punch with your plans over the plywood to make little dents in the wood every inch or so then remove the plans and connect the dots with a pencil then cut. Glen-L Poxy "Grip" is pre-thickened and ready to use for structural gluing. The Gle...

Re: New member from oregon

Man, the quality was never over the top on these brackets but I didnt have near the amount of trouble with them you guys are, I guess the quality has fallen off.
There is definitely an opportunity for someone with the right knowledge to offer a better product.

Re: Bob's Geronimo - launch

Great Job! It really looks great there! It will probably be noticeably different with just the two of you so try it with a light load before you change too much. I'm sure some of the folks that run similar boats will give you some ideas on trimming but just try what you have a lot first and get to k...

Re: Bob's Geronimo - launch tomorrow

You definitely need a method that works for you. Also since many of us use trailers converted for our boats you might want to take tools to adjust your trailer if needed.
