Re: SEA KNIGHT

LOVE those colors! I think it looks great! Personally I will not be putting non-skid on the decking on mine. I like to live dangerously. I have non-skid on the sole in my jon boat and it looks really rough, plus it gets dirty and hard to clean. I'm currently planning on carpet in my cockpit.

Re: Structural role of gussets

Personally I don't think it's worth the trouble or "risk". I like the way the gussets look IMO.

Re: Leme rephrase my question. by Newbe-CS-20

If you call the glen-l office you will probably be able to talk to Gayle and possibly Glen. I know he comes into the office from time to time but he is on the other other side of 90 so you never know.

Re: Leme rephrase my question. by Newbe-CS-20

The description on the website leads one to believe that it is just a larger version. I'm glad Gayle cleared that up for you. Looks like a sturdy boat with the double thickness hull. And with outboard power up to 175 should have the option of going fairly quick.

Re: Bungs / Plugs

Save some of your mahogany sawdust if you can. If you ever need to fill in a crack or anything else you can just mix it in with some epoxy.

Re: Lowe's Lumber Question

If you use an outboard in salt water you will want to get those "muffs" that you can hok up to a hose and run fresh water through to flush out the cooling system. Not just rinse the exterior.

Re: Bungs / Plugs

Epoxy is supposed to be "flexible". Also I don't see varnish preventing the problem. If you used epoxy to glue your planks down what's the difference. I'm sure cracks can happen no matter what you do.

Re: Flats Flyer Build in S.C.

Yeah I linked to cabin skiff pics on the Glen l site. I don't think that's what the guy wanted. But I think the 20 is just a stretched version.

I believe it is just a larger version. What comparisons are you looking for?

Re: Another Geronimo Coming Soon

Thanks! Fairing is coming along. I got some 40 grit belts yesterday and tried one out this morning. Definitely an improvement for removing material on the sheer.

Re: Another Geronimo Coming Soon

In case anyone is curious and remembers about my port side sheer breaking. Here is the end result of the fix. I filled the hole a couple of weeks ago. I had some thickened epoxy leftover from somewhere else and mixed in some oak shavings off of the floor. Made a nice filler for the hole. I didn't ta...

Re: Hello from Virginia

I think Ray Mackie built a cabin skiff before his current build.
