Re: SEA KNIGHT

I added the additional INterlux coats of paint on the transom and like the way it looks. I also went with FLag BLue color which is a deeper shade of blue which I also like.

Re: SEA KNIGHT

Question? I am ready to hang my motor on the transom at this point. I have never started or heard this motor run. It is very old but otherwise a cool motor. (Bearcat 55) any thoughts on how I should proceed. THanks

Re: SEA KNIGHT

I have been disappointed in the look of the paint I used and regret not using Interlux Brightside to start with. I scuffed up the transom area and put a coat of brightside on and it looks a lot better. I will take a photo after I paint the blue area as well. It will take awhile but I will have to re...

Re: SEA KNIGHT

Thank you Matt, I agree with you on the gasket. On the cabin door I think I am leaning towards the double door and will get in the boat this morning with my two door halfs that I already have made up and think on it.

Re: SEA KNIGHT

I could use some feedback on the Cabin Door. I have been planning to do the door as per plan which is a bi fold design but am not really excited about it. I would prefer a single section door but there is no room to fold out of the way along the bulkhead. the bifold would take up less room folded bu...

Re: SEA KNIGHT

Thank you rleete, I had a similar idea but also had a narrow piece of 1/4 round stock that looked like it would also make a nice solution to the gap. A little more work with attachment and finish but I might go that route, it moulds nicely as well. I am in no hurry on this detail since I have some m...

Re: SEA KNIGHT

Thanks Carl and Bill. Carl I have planned for the wedge at the large aft end gaps ever since I first constructed the frames and that is still what I will likely do. I have a noticeable gap on the starboard side frame only that I may try something else like maybe just a spongy weatherstrip seal or so...

Re: SEA KNIGHT

Finally have all the glass installed on the cabin and flybridge windscreen. still have to trim out the flybridge glass except for the side frames which I just glued in with a clear adhesive and escutcheon pins. I will try to clean up imperfections somehow though and still need to come up with a solu...

Re: GERONIMO's progress and advice

Hi Bob, I just in the last few weeks just went ahead and added glass cloth and resin to my exposed plywood edge in the motor well and am satisfied with that. I can now just paint it and the glass cloth will add some durability to the area. I had thought of added veneer tape or laminating a nice wood...

Re: SEA KNIGHT

Thanks guys for the replys. Peter the legs and metal parts seem excellent and plenty strong. Garelick side mount 75055. The system holds my 245lbs ok so far. Bob my deck ply is just attached with a few screws into the battens, seems to be all that is needed. the three panels are removable but the si...

Re: SEA KNIGHT

Hello Bryan, It does fold down but I think I should be able to stand with it in the position shown. I dont have a steering system yet but I think I have room. I just realized I could install removable pins at the hinge point for quick removal of the entire seat and base.

Re: SEA KNIGHT

Finally finished the helm seat installation on the starboard side. It took me many hours and days to do all the figuring, making up parts, varnish work etc. I did make duplicate parts for the port side so I expect that to go faster but I didn't expect this to take so long. Still lots of details to d...
