Re: Question

Man, I figured a drill bit would go right through a SB screw. I guess I haven't run into that problem yet.

Re: Mahogany

Dave, I have a 6.5 foot bed. With the tailgate down a little over 8 feet.

According to the book, Mahogany is 2.83lbs per board foot. That makes the math a little easier. Don't think I would be able to put 3000lbs in the bed of my truck!

Re: Mahogany

Dave, I bought 400 board feet back when I was getting started with my build. I can tell you that my half ton pickup would have easily carried 900 board feet. It sounds like a lot but its not as much as you think. The only thing is if the boards are super long how far will they hang out the back? I h...

Re: how to fix this on Malihini

Looks like you just got unlucky. There was probably a small imperfection in the ply in just the right spot. You can minimize the butt blocks flattening an area by clamping from both sides. I made up a clamping jig to help with that. Here it is:

Re: Ratios of Epoxy / Silica / Micro Balloons

I swore that I saw a formula in one of Glens books but I've looked for it recently and can't find it now.

Re: Another Geronimo Coming Soon

A couple of updates on my Geronimo:

Second port side panel permanently attached.

Forward starboard panel has been roughly cut to shape and clamped in place to check fairing.

Here's a cool view from inside, although my phone's wide angle lens makes the frames look hideously out of plumb. They are fine in real life.

Re: Overniter in SC

What I've been doing I wouldn't consider a fillet, but after a hull panel is glued and screwed on I get underneath and just work some epoxy into the corner between the frame and plywood skin. There is usually plenty that has oozed out anyways and I just smooth it out with a mixing stick. I always ta...

Re: Another Geronimo Coming Soon

If anyone remembers a while back when my son had surgery, well yesterday we had some good news from the surgeon. For the last four months since his surgery we have been shoving silicone tubes up his nose every day to maintain the shape of his nostrils. The surgeon now says that we don't need to do t...

Re: Klondike Build

Wow.... The basic outline of your boat is complete! I forgot you had a bow thruster. I'm sure that will make life much easier around the docks. It's a shame that you'll have to cut the top off but I bet by the time you're done no one will ever know but you (and us) that it was ever done. Dave, with ...
