Overniter Launch

After construction for 8 years, I was able to officially launch my boat over the weekend. I had some porpoising issues, which I was expecting due to weight distribution, but it was otherwise a perfect day and a lot of fun to enjoy the fruits of my labor. Still have to add a windshield and some finis...

Window Frame Design

I have decided to try and design a window similar to the Lyman boats and have found a lot of good ideas including on this site. My question for the board is what should be the thickness of my frames? I...

My boat is the 16ft overniter and I have a 2015 Mercury 90HP 4 stroke and a 16 gallon fuel tank in the back as well. My que...

Mahogony Plywood for Deck?

I am finally at the point of planking my top deck on the Overniter build. I have a few questions for the experts on here. I have plenty of access to 4/4 mahogony and maple at a local lumber store, but I am not confident that I have the tools to rip the wood to the 1/4 inch width for my planks. The s...

Roll and Tip Question

All,
After considering spraying I am going with the roll and tip method to paint my boat. I am using Interlux VC Performance Epoxy on the bottom with four coats. My question is do I need to roll and tip all four coats or just the final one? Thanks for the help.

Fiberglass surface preperation

Any suggestions on what to use to clean all the sawdust and puddy dust off the plywood before fiberglassing? I thought I had read on here that denatured alcohol was the way to go, but wanted to check before I went that route. Thanks.

Sanding Epoxy drips

I was very liberal with my epoxy application and have quite a few drips down the side of my boat. Anybody have a preferred tool or method to sand these drips flat. I have been using an orbital and am afraid that I might be creating low spots. FYI, the expoxy is glen-l poxy-grip. Thanks.
