We'll be up the last 2 weeks of July. Let's plan on meeting again...that rainstorm broke up last years' party a bit too soon! I want to see your boat in action...
Looks like we will be there the third week of July. Stop in anytime.

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Looks good from here :D

With the 3m pps disposable cup/liner system you can use a gravity gun more like a suction gun. Even upside down for a bit... If you hold the gun upside down and and pull the trigger you can collapse the liner and put it under a slight vacuum.

Pic of gap
Hard to say from looking at pics. But I think a shim added to fill that gap is a good idea...if it isn’t it’s easy to to plane it back off.


...Looking good.

Fell marine MOB+

Everyone on the boat has a wrist band. If anyone falls off an alarm is sounded and the engine is killed. The engine can be restarted after Something like 10 or 15 seconds.

Why do you need over 1000 HP on the boat that is pulled by a truck with maybe 200 HP?

You haven't been truck shopping lately. :wink:

Laminated is often stronger and straighter than solid lumber.

When I make templates like that (for countertops) I use a hot glue gun. Quick and strong.

Re: attaching ply subdeck

I also skipped the nails and screws on my build. I did use some temporary screws to hold things in place when clamps or weights wouldn’t work. My hull, frames and top deck have no fasteners in them. Though I did use the carriage bolts called for on the keel and transom. But I was building the little...

Re: attaching ply subdeck

If using epoxy as an adhesive does one really need to screw off the sub deck (or hull) every three inches? Or are they needed for structural reasons. And if so wouldn’t there be a difference between the schedule for nails vs screws?

stop whining about fuel cost I have a 100 litre tank @ $1.80 au per litre :roll:
I see your 1.80/liter and raise you a twin engine two stroke jet boat ;)

FWIW every gallon of gas I buy for the boat and small engines gets the marine version of Stabil and Yamaha ring free.

Re: Fisherman

IDK, but can stretching the length from the stem back change the angle of the keel/stem/frame intersection enough to change the measurements? Anyways what’s an inch here or there :P ? Line things up straight and plumb and go with it :wink: Welcome. Looking forward to watching what you do with the de...
