Re: Acrylic 2k problems

Guys, Thanks for your advice. I was really hoping not to have any more sanding for the bottom and sides but I think there will be. With the boat being big 21' I had to cover up half of the bottom whilst I sprayed one side to stop the overspray, and, unfortunately I live in a low humidity climate whi...

Acrylic 2k problems

Probably northern NSW would be a good spot only because it seems to be central ...

Re: Renegade Builder advice needed

Guys, The specs call for a 12 deg shaft angle with a 7 1/2" drop strut. I think I will order a strut from the states. We have a boat show coming up in Sydney at the end of July I think I will poke my head under all the boats and just see what is going on under there. Why is it that when you are buil...

Re: New Member

Sorry for not giving more information, my first time forum. The engine will be a 5.7litre PCM Classsic engine (rated 315hp). I am still not sure as to where the engine placement will be, and I know I am running out of time to decide, I quiet like Robert Jameson's mid mount option (Cheaper) but I wo...
