Re: Tuffy Build

Some progress. Motor well sides are on, next is the cowl. I might prime and paint before I fasten it down, see how I feel about it when the time comes.

Decided to just get a tiller extension for now. The motor needs to be switched back and forth between boats.

Re: Fisherman

I used both methods on my boat. The method described above by Bill is much better. I joined the sides using fiberglass tape before mounting them. You have to keep them flat and from moving a PIA by itself. It also takes a long time, I did both sides so I had to wait for the epoxy to cure before I co...

Re: Tuffy Build

It does have a different look to it. In pictures of it on the water the edge of the top edge of the transom seems to be almost in the water.

Re: Tuffy Build

First coat of primer is on, there are a couple little spots that I need to touch up before I add the second coat. I think the deck is ready to go on. I need another sheet of plywood for the front and need it to be a dry day to go and get one. Going to have to decide on the hull colour, I am leaning ...

Re: Michael's ZIP

That is a nice look.

Are you doing a storage area in place of the second seating row or does it just open up?

Re: Tuffy Build

Almost ready to put the deck down, sanded the sides for primer.

I was always planning to paint the sides, not sure about the deck yet.

Re: Tuffy Build

The deck battens and the carlings are on, time for more fairing! :D

I drilled the hole for the bow hook before I put on the battens, not sure why I was so concerned about that.

Re: Tuffy Build

Great, i will set something like that up, thanks. I guess I already drilled the transom and the stem to attach them, I survived that. It would have been great if I had drilled the stem when I could hold it in my hands. This will have to be one of my next jobs, once I get those deck battens on I woul...

Re: Tuffy Build

I just realized I need to put a bow hook for trailering. Seems it would be difficult to drill a hole through the stem or at least one that was straight.. Any suggestions on this or a product recommendation?

Re: Tuffy Build

OK thanks. I have a bit more time to mess with it as I am supposed to do the carlings first.

I was happy to see his post as I was just looking at it before I saw the post.
