Re: New Glen-L 14 Build

I switched to an impact driver and found I striped less screws.

Jenko, Looks great. If you didn't say it was your first attempt, I never would have guessed.

Re: modified malahini

So, I said I was going to do initial sand out of epoxy over fiberglass with 80 grit paper on a longboard. Well, it was taking a long time to do a little section. I switched to 60 grit. Much easier. Did first pass in about an hour on one side. Found some low areas. I think I'm going to get out the fa...

Re: modified malahini

Matt B: I was looking at the photos of your bottom paint and boot stripe. She does seem to ride a little low in the stern. I will be using a 90 hp Evinrude as well on my boat. Where are your fuel tank and battery?

Re: modified malahini

Thanks Bill. Are you saying I don't have to worry about the transom edge either?

Re: modified malahini

I"m back in sanding hell :x :x Feathering edges of cloth with 80 grit on a rubber sanding block. Will start the field with 80 grit on a longboard. My question of the day: I know I have to build up the corner where the transom and bottom meet to a knife edge, but what about where I rounded over ...

Re: modified malahini

I have the fiberglass on and the weave filled. Started sanding with 80 grit. So, here is my dumb question of the day: I glassed to the waterline. When I paint where do I stop? Bottom paint to the waterline or slightly above? What about the boot stripe? Should the top of the boot stripe be 1" ab...

Re: modified malahini

Bob, that is how I did it. Worked out nicely. I used a laser level at the waterline and made sure the plywood transition was above that line.

Re: Primer for wr-lpu paint.

Thanks for your reply Bob. I will be rolling and tipping since I don't know how to spray and I don't have the equipment. Now I just have to make a final decision on color.

Primer for wr-lpu paint.

I want to order my paint and primer. I am going to use wr-lpu. Do I have to use the System three yacht primer or can I use a high build primer that is not waterborne? The yacht primer covers 200 - 250 square feet per gallon. The area I have to paint is about 100 square feet (15 x 7). That gives me t...

Re: modified malahini

Bob:

At the bow, I veneered beyond what I thought was the water line. I guess it is possible to match the stain, but would be a lot of trial and error. If you look at page three, you can see where I used two different thickness plywoods at the bow to accommodate the veneer.
