Re: modified malahini

After over 6 yrs, the plan is to flip her on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend. I have the cradle built. I just need to finish the color sanding and buffing. Should have that done this weekend. Anyone in the area is welcome to come. I will have beer and most likely pizza.

Re: best type carpet for boat cradle

I have my cradle built for the flip. I plan on flipping her Thanksgiving weekend. I need to cover the supports with carpet. Does it matter what type I use or just get any remnant I can find? It will stay inside during the remainder of the build. Should I order bunk carpet?

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

I used less than 1/2 gallon of yacht primer. Can't remember how many coats, but at least 3. I have used 2/3 a gallon of wr-lpu, but that is for 8 coats. If can be sprayed. If I remember correctly, that is their recommended application method. They recommend starting with 20% thinning with clean wate...

Re: Tinting VC Performance Epoxy Paint

Tom: I think Bill Edmundson mentioned tinting Interlux at Sherwin Williams. I don't know the details. I have been using WR-LPU from system 3. It goes on nicely and they have a cream color. Only problem is it is not really a bottom paint and can not stay submerged for long periods of time.

Re: Utility skiff build question

I agree with cyclone and hercdrvr. Keep the joints near the transom. As for your plan to steam in a bag and bend into place while still steaming. I did the same thing on my build to bend my lift strakes. It worked out nicely. The pieces are very hot! Be sure to use heavy gloves when bending. Don't a...

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

I tried several different things. Epoxy with wood flour: Didn't have to buy anything extra, but very hard to sand. Takes a long time to cure. Quick Fair: Sands nicely. Not cheap. Total Boat Total Fair: Also sands nicely (maybe a little easier than Quick Fair). Also not cheap. Liked Total Fair better...

Re: Utility skiff build question

Remember, most of these boats curve up (or down when upside down) from where the stem joins the last frame. It makes sense that the keel will have a little bend at that point.

Re: Key Largo Update - Boise, ID

I'm not sure about varnish submerged for any period of time. I would consider wr-lpu in clear. I am using it as bottom paint for a boat that will be mostly trailered. You can reach out to them on their help line to see about compatibility.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl: When Lisa and I were engaged, I had her a hope chest that I veneered in cherry. The material was thin and applied with contact cement. I used a heavy roller to attach pieces. Similar to when applying formica laminate. I have also used the heat activated, but had a few problems with it.
