+1 on the water and hot (clothes) iron method. I've used this with good results in the past.

Re: bending and attaching chines

I installed the sheers first, and used clamps braced against the sheers to help with the twisting.

Re: Building the PeeWee in Germany

Hi Tijan, It is the same on the Squirt, the skeg is kind of left to the builder. I search around here to see what others had done. On thing I learned was to cut the end of the skeg about 12" (~30cm) in front of the transom to avoid turbulence into the propeller. I'm not sure how critical this is on ...

Re: Changes

Hi Andy,

Rather than routing through your deck, others have just used vinyl striping tape and then added a few coats of epoxy to level out the surface before clearing it.

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Hi Jim, Sorry to hear you are have such troubles. You are not alone and I was in the same situation with my boat. believe me. Bottom line is that you are not going to get a mirror finish rolling and tipping. No amount of thinner, reducer, brush type, etc... will get the paint to flow out perfectly l...

Re: Building the PeeWee in Germany

Hi Tijan, Section B-B is a typical cross section along the full length of the stem. The note says that this is to aid in the fairing process, so you can cut this now while you can work on the stem as a single piece, or later when you are fairing the frames prior to sheeting it. If you have a bandsaw...

Re: New member. Squirt jet build intended

There are some well documented builds of Jet Squirts out there (search jet squirt and you will find them), so I don't think you will be treading on new ground. There are two approaches, 1. graft the drive portion of the jetski to the Squirt hull, and 2. build the jet tunnel into the hull and mount t...

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

@ Footer, By screwing to the frames, you have basically perforated the plywood. The plywood has a significant bending and stress across the frames, so there is now a weak spot there and you risk cracking the plywood across the frame. Of course it is ok to screw to the side edges of the transom, but ...

Re: Anybody ever set up solar power on their boat? Any ideas what would be needed?

I just have a small panel setup to trickle charge my small 12V starting battery while the boat is on the lift. The panel is approximately 6" x 12" and has a regulator to prevent draining the battery when the sun isn't shinning. This works great and I don't have to worry about charging the battery ou...
