I like how you raised up the sheer line a few inches. Is that part of the plans, or did you do that yourself? Also, how does it look from the outside?

Re: Australian Zip

I am looking at the Honda 4 stroke 50hp for my skiff at 214 lbs it seemed light for a 4 stroke to me what would a two stroke weigh? FYI the 40hp Honda weighs in at 214 lbs as well and the 30hp is 155 lbs

Re: Console Skiff build

Thanks Jeff!!

pfam your CS looks great thanks for sharing!! What plywood did you use?

Gwoloshyn bandsaw and spindle sander. All the profiles were cut on a router table and the top pieces are 1/8" bendable plywood with canvas backing attached with contact cement to keep the plywood from cracking

Re: Console Skiff build

Re: Encapsulating confusion.

Clear Penetrating Epoxy produced by Smith's It is essentially a modified epoxy that soaks deeply into the pores of the wood. It costs about $60 per quart and will do you whole boat inside and out. If you plan on painting or glassing over then get yourself some CPES from Jamestown Distributors. Get ...

Re: Fiberglassing Minimaxed

Not to hijack this thread but it appears by this and other posts that using more epoxy than is provided in the kits is the rule not the exception. My question is how much more is common? 25%, 50%, 100% just trying to adjust my console skiff budget accordingly.

Re: Console Skiff build

Well after the responses here and some additional research I have decided to go the Jobert Okoume plywood. In the end the cost will be about $400 more than my second choice and almost 140 lbs lighter I decided it was worth the extra money. I will be ordering it from marine-plywood.us they had what I...

Re: Epoxy won't set up.

I used 13 gallons of epoxy up to this point and if I mixed them wrong I would be in BIG trouble. Thanks everyone for the tips, this is what makes this sight priceless. 13 gallon...
