Re: What fasteners for bow light?

I think if you crack the chrome when putting in the screw, the chrome won't help. Looking at some galvanic reaction charts chrome and stainless steel are close to each other, so the galvanic reaction should be small. So, I'm with Bill and say SS would be fine.

Re: Minnesota Squirt Build

Looking good.

I know you are using solid chines and sheers, but if they are over sized enough, consider ripping them down and laminating them when you install them. It will be a lot easier to bend them into place. Otherwise, look at how others have steam bent their chines.

Re: Another pee wee build

+1 on the System 3 WR-LPU paints. There is a little learning curve, but it very nice to be able to build up multiple coats in a short time with no odor.

The black(?) looks sharp!

Check out the AOMCI (Antique Outboard Motor Club) website. There is a whole other group of people that are into old outboards and someone will be interested in it.

Re: Okoume vs Meranti for clear finishing

Hi Brock, My Squirt is 10' 10" and I bought 5 sheets of 1/4" Okoume and 1 sheet of 3/4" Okoume and I have significant scraps left over. I used 4x8 sheets and did a 3" scarf joint on the sides and bottom. This was also enough to do the deck with Okoume. If I recall, use 1 sheet for half of the bottom...

Re: Outrage progress

It is two part filler, then warmer = faster cure, cooler = slower cure. You can always add a small space heater under the hull if it is cool at night. Even a few 100W light bulbs can help.
