is to take a small propane torch and quickly pass over it and it will pop the bubbles.
Or a heat gun works too.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Hi Carl,

I like the idea of cut outs in the conduit to help get the wires where they need to be. Did you just use your spindle sander?

Re: Squirt Frame 2 - Lost already !

Hi Mark, Herc is correct. The bottom piece of frame two is made from 3 pieces of wood. The floor timber spans across the keel/stem and the two other pieces are glued to it with a gap between them for the stem. This is the best photo I could find of my frame two assembly. The floor timber is on top a...

Re: Deck Striping

I used System 3 silver tip with micro balloons. It is very white. I have had a small crack develop after 2 years, and I'm not sure why. It may be from stepping on the deck or the mix may have been a bit dry. I would recommend a mayonnaise consistency. The fix should be pretty straight forward, I jus...

Re: Brisbane Squirt

Hi fellow Squirt builder, I high recommend double checking the symmetry of the patterns from left to right. When copying "blue prints" they can stretch along the length of the print due to the rollers in the copying machine. This will be most noticeable if one frame is laid out 90 degrees from anoth...

Re: Malahini from MD

Your hull looks pretty good from here. You won't notice the waviness at 30 mph with water splashing up along the sides! 8)

I'm glad you went with the toe rail on the fore deck, it is a nice feature.

Re: Minuet room for porta potty?

Carl (mrintense) is planning something like what Bill wrote above on his Vera Cruise. Take a look at his build log or contact him to see how much room he is planning for.

Re: skin separating from hull below waterline

Hi UpNorth, On the short part of the keel, did this boat hit something? There appears to be some damage to keel itself. On the thicker/taller(?) part of the keel, looking at the drawings of the Titan, this supports the bottom of the rudder and propeller shaft, correct? If this is the case, could the...

What is the standard practice for treating a solid wood keel? The keel wood appears to be sound.
Encapsulate with epoxy, and paint it with the hull.

Re: skin separating from hull below waterline

My opinion based on what I've seen done here... You will need to strip back the fiberglass until you find a solid bond, and then feather the edges for the repair. The wood will need to be re-encapsulated. You may want to look at CPES penetrating epoxy for this. It will soak into the wood and should ...
