Matt, a 14* strut is perfect for a Tahoe. Tom

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Hey Matt, I was all smiles...then I noticed all the sags and bumps. The glossy finish highlights everything. I shaved the high spots and sags with a cabinet scrapers, worked well. Sanding not so much, the Perfection Plus cures slowly (24 hours and not hard enough to sand). Staying off it until it is...

Re: Newbie from Winder, Ga

The Outrage will be an interesting build. 18" on the side will be tight. Maybe you can use casters on your build form so the boat can be moved around a little to give you all the space available wherever you're working. Tom

Re: How to finish deck surface

I'm using the Interlux version of the same products...basically nasty solvents with a little finish mixed in. Roberta mentioned using these hot dog rollers a while back www.jamestowndistributors.com/userportal/show_product.do?pid=336322&familyName=Epifanes+Moltopren+Fine+Foam+Roller+Cover . They are...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Thanks guys. Barry, I ordered African Mahogany. Several of the boards came from the same tree and I was able to get enough for most of the side planking. I like the color and I'm almost sure it's mahogany and African maybe. I'll need more for the decking and really should go to the yard and have the...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

After all the sanding fuss and worry... the first coat of finish gives me goose bumps.

Re: set up line

Have a look at sheet 4, the cross section through the frame. You are correct, the top of the stringer is the setup line. Make the frames per the full size template drawing. The bottom of the stringers are notched 1/2" to accept and locate the edge of the frames as they contact the bottom of the stri...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

I decided to go ahead with another coat of paint. Thinning 10%, roll and tip over a 320 grit gave me the closest so far to laying down a paint surface without brush marks... The paint job described above on the left side, the right side is sanded to 1000 grit. IMG_0290.jpg Both sides sanded to 1000....

Re: Pulling hooks question

The eyes on the stern of my factory boat are located at a level a few inches above the bottom of the motor well and a few inches inboard of the side planking, comfortably above the waterline and clear enough of the side to get a wrench on the inside.

Re: Fisherman

Rely on the instructions. The book is excellent but the instructions are specific to your boat. Your instructions might be different, but my instructions have a heading "Glues & Fastenings" where all that is discussed in general. Then there is a Fastening Schedule where specific junctions and the fa...

Re: Fisherman

Questions: My chines are hitting stem to far forward and therefore do not plain into center of stem. I could have easily adjusted chine block to address this, I just trusted my cut and installed the chines to chine blocks accordingly. I have seen other posts where people add material to stem prior ...

Re: Enjoying our Malahini

Welcome to the posting side of the forum. The boat looks great! Get ready for lots of questions. "Who restored it?" "My dad had one just like it, what make is it?" "What year is it?" "Would you be interested in selling it or making me one?"

Re: Tunnel mite chine to bow piece

Have a look at www.boatbuilders.glen-l.com/tunnel-mite ... eve-powers

A block attached to the bow "ear" and the chine attached to the block. Lots of fairing at that end I bet.
