Re: Bilge Paint ?

I painted the bilge, white Interlux Bilgekote over primer and 3 coats epoxy. No regrets, some extra time but I like the clean look and any leaks or other mischief are easy to spot. I think it's ok not to paint where UV is not an issue as pointed out by Matt and Ken.

Regards,

Steve

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

Roberta,

Looks like the right way to deal with that kind of weather...

P.S. Is that B-17 airworthy?

Re: Klondike Build

Thanks Carl. I've been in touch with the transport guys and have pushed the date back to mid-May which is totally doable now that weather is more favorable for getting finish work and other loose ends tied up. The punch list is now broken down by weeks so we can track progress better. Trying to bala...

Re: Klondike Build

Billy, I appreciate your encouragement... always good to hear from you! Steve, thanks for your kind words! We're pedaling pretty hard to get on the water sometime this spring... March is probably not going to happen but we'll see. The transport guys are just waiting for a green light and about 3 wee...

Re: Klondike Build

A quick update... Had some damage to the awning and tarps from winter storms but have mostly cleaned up the mess and back to making progress on the interior. The salon and helm seat frames have been finished with latches for storage under; cushions are ready to be fitted but are stored in plastic fo...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Can't add much to the prop discussion... I would definitely go with Bill's recommendations.

I really like the stack of white oak. So cool to have a family timber farm as a resource!

Re: modified malahini

Everything's looking great Bryan! The homemade stand looks very functional... getting (and keeping) the hull level and plumb is a huge help in building out interior details.

Re: Building a La Paz 24

Check your local supplier but in our area vertical grain fir is at least 50% more expensive per bf than sapele or african mahogany. Sapele in particular is a good choice for structural applications (straight grain, not ribbon grain)... dense and very strong with tight grain, machines easily and epox...
