Your waterline may be different since you added the deep vee. On the Geronimo it's the same as the setup level.

Re: HP for Power-Row 13 1/2" SB Skiff

I'm sure this will be a fun project! Regarding your unheated garage and building in the winter: I was able to build through the winter in an un-insulated garage in North Carolina. I did occasionally use a space heater to direct heat towards curing epoxy. If you can save up several things to glue up ...

Re: Which Side Backing?

When I had the jon boat, I could not see the empty trailer if it was lined up straight behind the truck. So I generally preferred to back down the ramps in a slight curve if possible so I could keep my eye on the drivers side wheel.

Re: Double Eagle 23' - SKEG

Rick, great to hear from you. That is an awesome looking boat so far. Looks like you are doing a great job. I hope you will consider continuing to post about it here on the forum. I don't have a definite answer for you on the skeg but it seems to me that it should be as stable as possible since you'...

Re: Fairing the sides on the malahini transom

I think you could run into a good bit of trouble gluing to the chine first and letting that cure. Are you trying to finish the plywood bright (natural)? If so you need to be really careful about getting the butt joints as tight as possible and maybe attempt to match the grain up if you can. I have s...

Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

It's already flared on one side correct? Presumably the outboard side. The pressure of the water from the boat floating pushes it in.

Re: malahini stem question

You may have to do the boiling water/towels trick. It helps a lot.

Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

Do you even have to flare the tube or can you just cut it to be flush?

Re: Another Geronimo Coming Soon

It's good to be back at it! I need to hustle to get on the water next summer, but I think it's doable. And good thought, Jim. However, I think even the worst of it wont trap any water.
