Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

The boat looks great! 24x30 is a good size for a shop. I had 24x24 in NC and it was enough for the boat plus other projects. If you can make your door slightly higher than the standard 7' you'll be doing yourself a favor.

Re: Epoxy bonding issues with white oak.

Sapelli was the same price as oak at my supplier in Marion, NC. I did not know this until after I had already bought all the oak. I might have gone that way had I known. I just assumed it was quite a bit more.

Will pulling the tape early prevent a ridge from forming?

Re: Rampage Update 2017

I'm sure that stain bleeding onto the ash is frustrating! But man, looking at the big picture on your boat, I love where you are going with this thing! It is really stunning. The striping is very tasteful.

Re: Another Geronimo Coming Soon

No, Dave there wouldn't be much room for a car in the garage if it was empty. Luckily it is fully insulated, including the door. I should be able to make progress all through the winter.

Re: Another Geronimo Coming Soon

I finally got all the lumber and plywood out of the boat and started back at cleaning up glue drips. I think most of the ones that will be hidden by the cockpit sole I will just leave. No one is ever going to see them and they are not blocking any of the limbers. Question: is there a consensus on th...

Re: Transom motor mount holes, before or after fiberglass?

There's really no way to know exactly where to drill the holes until you are ready to actually install the outboard. Go ahead and do your fiberglass first.

Photobucket seems to be holding all your embedded pictures hostage. So I can't see your completed boat :(

Re: modified malahini

I used the 7 inch rollers that Glen-l sells and some 9 inch 1/8" nap foam rollers from somewhere else. Both did a good job evenly distributing epoxy over the hull during the fiberglassing process. I did three coats of epoxy and went through about 10 rollers. When initially wetting out the cloth...

Re: Solar powered Amp Eater

So you actually cruised for 5-6 hours and still have 50%+ in battery capacity? That sounds pretty much ideal to me! I would imagine your boat would be amazing for trolling fishing.

Re: Solar Eclipse

The shadows were the most interesting thing to me. Other than it getting down to about twilight light levels for a few minutes. We were about 90% here. Hopefully we'll still be in the area in seven years for the next one. It's supposed to pass directly over Indiana. It will happen in April so the an...

Re: modified malahini

Looks great. Even if the filled holes don't blend perfectly it will add to the character of the boat.
