Re: Outrage Build

My apologies for not getting back to you guys until now. The bilge framework was of my own design, I wanted to run additional pieces in between the frames to support my floor in case the frames didn't do a good enough job. Glad I did, because my floor turned out very solid. The gas tank is a Moeller...

Re: flip

I pulled my mattress out of the bedroom and put my boat onto that.

Re: Outrage Build

Here's a few I pulled from my camera that I took a few days ago. I'll be starting to rig the motor soon and get things in place for controls, and running electrical for my lights and instruments. http://i46.tinypic.com/1z2dpw1.jpg http://i46.tinypic.com/svggw8.jpg http://i49.tinypic.com/53pti0.jpg

Re: Outrage Build

Thanks, they did a nice job on it and are a good bunch of guys to do business with. Here are some pictures of the almost completed bilge framework. The epoxy went on a little sloppy in spots but I knew it was being covered for good so didn't spend a lot of time on it. Next I have to encapsulate the ...

Re: Outrage Build

I've started work on the floor a few weeks ago and it's almost about done. I used the existing floor timbers built into the frames for this purpose, but had to add additional framing to span the bilge area so the floor didn't sag. I'm using 3/8" plywood for the floor and the reason being is it has t...

Re: Outrage Build

:lol: I have only one thing to say carpet on frame to protect the boat :wink: I know this! I actually couldn't come across any scrap carpeting so I cut up an old sleeping bag and stapled it to the bunks. Turned out pretty nice and provides plenty of padding for all the moving around in and out I'll...

Re: Outrage Build

Successfully righted the hull today with only three people. We lifted it out of the garage and set it on a mattress on it's side, then tipped it over onto my dolly. It was a little scary with only three people but we managed. Next to do is begin encapsulating, filleting, and pricing out material to ...

Re: Wet sanding enamel?

I agree it's very time consuming but that's alright with me as long as my finish turns out nice in the end. This also gives me more time to plan my next steps and save some more money for materials. I like your process but unfortunately I cannot paint any more because my spray booth has been torn do...

Re: Wet sanding enamel?

Thanks. I actually started wet sanding today after waiting a week after painting and got good results starting with 600 grit paper knocking down the orange peel. Problem I have is there are many low shiny spots that need to be removed, but I don't want to go any further sanding risking bleeding thro...

Re: Scotts TNT build.

When you bend that sheer clamp around to your breasthook it will help the sheer clamp form a natural curve.

Wet sanding enamel?

I've painted my boat using SM-1000 and need to wet sand to get the orange peel out. I don't know too much about painting so looking for some advice and if this is alright to do. I tested it on a small spot with 400 grit and got a smooth dull finish which I plan to polish after it's done.

Re: Outrage Build

I get very impatient about paint drying. Good thing is, it was pretty hardened up when I began work and I went at it pretty easy. Plus, it's the bottom of the boat it's going to get dinged up.

Re: Outrage Build

Looks like I'm almost ready to flip. I built a cradle with casters, thanks to Jprice for the idea, instead of putting it on the trailer which would make it hard to move around.

Re: Building the Celerity

Too late. Check out my thread, we painted it last weekend. I'm going to wait a few weeks for the paint to cure solid, then be real careful laying things out.
