Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

I concluded that I want zero hull penetrations below the water line. None. In fact the only hull penetrations I will have are the drains for the splash well and the hole for the bow eye. Both are above the water line and were created using the drill fill drill technique. Bilge pumps will get water o...

Re: pvc drain tubes

I've seen people do it with epoxy but only after roughing up the epoxy with a coarse grit sandpaper paper to ensure a good mechanical bond. Even with a good mechanical bond though, im not certain it would prevent all water intrusion.

Re: 1985 mariner 90hp any good?

If you have the model year correct and the serial is all "numbers" that would make it one of the six cylinder models and I would stay away from it. If it's a "later" 1985 that was actually sold as part of the "brand new and redesigned" 1986 models, identified by an alp...

1985 mariner 90hp any good?

I have a possible lead on a 1985 90hp mariner outboard. Seller is asking $900 but willing to deal.

Assuming this thing looks good and checks out in decent shape would it be a good buy? Don't know anything about the mariners. Anything to be Leary of? And issues to look out for?

Re: Project *OverKill* Tahoe 23

My work bench top is a four inch thick slab of solid southern yellow pine. I gave a couple good coats of linseed oil and let it dry out for about a week. Then gave the top a coat of Johnson's paste wax. The wax allows glue drips to pop off pretty easily. You'll need to freshen up the coat of wax eve...

Re: Overniter in SC: Flipped 5-27-17

My intent was to use a permanent "below deck" tank because the tank will be completely concealed inside the frame work of the rear bench and motor well. It won't be moveable. If I end up putting two tanks in the aft corners on either side of the motor well they would definitely be pretty m...

Re: Overniter in SC: Flipped 5-27-17

Hey All, Work continues after the flip. I've started framing the motor well, pouring flotation foam, fitting the sole, mocking up deck beams and a host of other nick knacks. I'm at a point where I need to make some decisions that will influence weight distribution. In particular where will batteries...

Re: Overniter in SC: Flipped 5-27-17

Looks beautiful and congratulations on the flip. Always a satisfying moment in the build process. I like the lines of your hull. Is it going to be a Carolina style or is that just excess plywood giving the impression of a bow flare? Regardless, it's going to look beautiful on the water. I was also ...

Re: Overniter in SC

Well, after the painting saga was finally completed I set about securing a trailer. Ultimately went with and aluminum I-beam trailer from Venture that I bought through a dealer in Columbia SC. I just couldn't find a used trailer I was satisfied with at a cost that made it worth going used. In the lo...

I've often thought it would make a good bilge paint where UV isn't an issue.

Re: Overniter in SC

Which supermarine paint did you use? I was planning on using ironside, but could change my mind. Just looked, and can't find it online any more. Bryan I used the Ironsides. My whole experience with supermarine was very frustrating. The whole primer issue in particular. The Ironsides was no treat ei...
