Re: New from the Finger Lakes

You don't have to have a wife. But if you do, she needs to be on board or it's not happening.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

There's always a new and different task to work on with boatbuilding when you get frustrated. You can go back to the cabinet later with a fresh perspective.

Re: Bob's Geronimo, scuffed hull help

Bob, next time try one of these sponges if you need to scrub a little. A lot safer than that scotch brite!

Re: Geronimo Boat Ride

Bob, I don't know if you have a trim gauge. On mine I trim it up to about level after I get on plane and the RPMs jump up a few hundred. I have to trim back down for tight turns though or I get prop cavitation.

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Fairing compound: I used regular epoxy and added phenolic micro balloons with a little wood flour. With mostly micro balloons it's much easier to sand.

Re: I will be turning wood into a Cabin Skiff soon...

I like the idea of having the whole build from start to finish in one thread. Convenient if someone wants to read about it.

Re: Geronimo Boat Ride

Looks great, Bob! Is that with the engine trimmed all the way down?

Re: New Member from Central NY

Zip is a little small for four. It will definitely hold four but not much else. Something the size of the Malahini or similar could totally replace that bowrider.

That's right. Forward of the transition point (where the plywood goes from a lap joint to a butt joint). I don't know if chine line is the right terminology.

Re: FF in Kathleen GA

Looks right for a FF. Remember the actual chine line is in the center of the chine log (at least up forward).
