Re: Klondike Build

Thanks guys! Pete and Billy, appreciate your feedback... the o-ring issue was a real disappointment but good to know where the weak spots are. I like the idea of getting a little larger ring on hand for future repairs. Footer and Matt, we'll be launching on SF bay at Richmond (Svendsen's Baymarine) ...

Re: Klondike Build

A brief update, I misjudged the weather back in January and it's only just now getting to be reliably warm and dry, so progress since then has been slow. Also one of the crew moved to Alaska (!) so we've been short handed as well and mid May for transport is not going to happen. :? I built hose adap...

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...
