Re: Flats Flyer Build in S.C.

Question, instead of two 1/4" bottom hull pieces, can't you use a 1/2 sheet or is the bonding of the two 1/4" stronger etc.?
Thanks,

Re: 16' Scooter Question(s)?

Question on the Tunnel Hull and drainage.
In your opinion, would it be best to put a drain plug (screw-in type) on each side of the hull just in case?

Make your own JPlate $10.00. Plans are cheap and you can add a ram for T/Tilt.

What did you paint the hull with on the inside and when you glassed the deck, did you use one 6oz layer or ?

Thanks again,

Re: Flats Flyer Build in S.C.

I guess it's a little late for this method, now that you've already glassed. But I glassed the transom first, then built up the roundover with some thickened epoxy, filed it flush, then glassed over the bottom. taransom glass.png http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e306/jbsgroup1/taransom%20glass_zps...
