"new" trailer... best paint for refinishing?

Ok, it's new to me... :D https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-KOdfp2O100A/U-jOMwMCW5I/AAAAAAAAC3c/-yOTysnioYM/s800/trailer_1.JPG Got it off CL for $180. Has some surface rust in spots, and some rust inside the frame, but is otherwise solid. Not really ready for the trailer quite yet, but I just couldn...

Re: Another Geronimo Coming Soon

So there are a few frame parts that are about an inch wider than any of the widest boards that I have. Any suggestions? I had a similar issue with one of my frames. I used a biscuit joiner and epoxy to edge glue two boards together to make a wider board. I also reinforced the frame pieces after cut...

Re: Encapsulation

I agree with Bob. CPES is great for encapsulating. Mainly because of it's thin consistency. Goes on easy, and a little goes a long way. But as far as laminating pieces, I don't see why cpes would be necessary. Whenever laminating pieces, I gave each piece a coat of unthickened epoxy followed up by t...

Re: Multiple laminates over fillets

Not sure I understand the question. What do you mean by "each layer should not coincide with the other" ?
I'm not sure why you wouldn't be able to just put the second layer right on top of the first.

Re: Driftboat double ender

Do you mean 16' long? 16' wide would be a really huge boat. Anyway, Bill Edmundson is currently building a bartender style boat, which is double ended. Maybe he'll chime in here. I'm not aware of any glen-l designs like this, but here's the bartender plans: http://www.bartenderboats.com/design.html ...

Re: World Trade Center buried wooden ship in the news

I like this quote at the end...
I don't know much about the life expectancy for boats, but that doesn't seem like too long for something that would take so long to build
I have a firm understanding of the second part of that statement! :wink:

Re: modified malahini

I removed too much material near the stem and added a patch. I thought this was the standard procedure for fairing. I got so "good" at fairing that I needed multiple patches. Thank goodness for thickened epoxy. ;) But your build is looking good. Glad you got back to it. I've been away from mine for...

Re: Need help please?

While reading/researching ahead of time is a good idea, don't try to understand all of it at once. Because it will make your head explode. :shock: Once the wood is purchased, your first step would likely be tracing frame parts onto the wood, and then cutting them out. After you've done that then ref...

Re: Ocean/Waterway boats

So how rough is "rough" on these waterways? How big do the swells normally get? and how busy does it get with other boats around?

Re: GERONIMO - bending forward batten question

I went with a little simpler approach. I just wrapped bailing wire around the battens and down to a hook on the base of the form, then used a spanish windlass type attachment to tighten it down. And yes, I did have to kerf them to get them to bend easier. After the ply was attached, I just had to cr...

Re: Ocean/Waterway boats

In general, if it's going to be in rough water, you want a deeper V hull. A flat bottom boat would beat the heck out of you in rough waters.
Not sure what size or style you're looking for, but there's a bunch of deep-vee designs in the glen-l catalog.

Re: How "Easy" is easy for the Power Skiff 14'?

Here's a good video of a stitch and glue boat build: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wuoy1dGOxFI It will give you a good idea of what's required. Although you won't have to do the lofting part shown in the video, since Glen-L provides full size patterns. All you have to do is trace them out and cut.
