Re: Getting the boat to the water

That looks amazing! How far does it need to go? Glen-l 25 right? If so then it's legally trailerable without a wide load permit right?

Re: Potential Audeen build

Navy blue seats in the sun? I suggest re-thinking that.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

I don't know, Billj, just doing it my way. I have heard some others having a hard time with it which I assumed was because they were filleting the inside corners and overlapping. Just want to protect the motorwell from the cables chafing.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Jim - Should be splashing very soon!

Billj - I'm doing okay. Glassing in the motorwell continues. Should have that wrapped up tomorrow and maybe get the fill coats done as well if I have time. Planning on some small fillets in the corners. I am not overlapping the cloth in the corners.

Re: The Zip is on the NILE, Egypt

I have used about 7 gallons total for everything on my boat. I can't remember how much I used just for the bottom fiberglass.

Re: new guy from orange county, ca

That's a nice design. It doesn't look like it should be especially difficult to build compared to other designs in the catalog. The only thing that would potentially scare me off is the lift strakes but I'm sure that's a surmountable challenge and probably not as difficult as they look. Looks like i...

Re: The Zip is on the NILE, Egypt

Fiberglassing is not hard. It's just stressful the first few times since it will be a new skill for you. You're using a quality epoxy so you should have no problems.

Re: Desperado 18" 19"

3/8" is stiff enough and hard enough to bend as-is. 1/2" would be really difficult. I don't know what your options are in Nevada. Some folks have had to resort to ordering plywood and having it delivered freight. The downside is you'll probably end up ordering for the whole boat at once. T...
