Re: Frearson vs. Square Drive Poll

I have not used square drive SB screws, only the frearson SB while building the Flats Flyer. I have used the square drive screws (stainless) and liked how they drive better. I stripped a lot of frearson screws while driving into pine/fir, but I never stripped a square drive, even in red oak. I would...

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

At least the sanding of the primer/paint seems to go much quicker and easier. Hang in there yourself Carl, we'll both be moving to the fun stuff soon. I can say that the bottom is done! WOO WHOO I want to let the paint harden a couple of three weeks before the flip. Gives me time to build a cradle u...

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

Thanks Kelly.

Going to look at removing a paint run this weekend and may need to put on another coat of paint. We'll see how it goes. I want to let the paint cure for at least 2 weeks before flipping to make sure it's hard. Probably looking at a flip in mid-May.

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

Finally got the bottom primed and painted. Put second coat on today and pretty pleased with the results with rolling and tipping. Some brush marks but I may not worry about the ones that won't been seen after the flip. Will need to do some sanding/polishing around the bow though. FullSizeRender.jpg ...

Re: New Member Florida Keys

Steve, It's hard to believe I've been working on it about a year and half. I try to get 4-6 hours a week on it, which is about average, so around 400 hours so far. I really only get the weekends, weather permitting and task at hand, I can get 16-18 hours on it. But there are times when I haven't bee...

Re: New Member Florida Keys

Steve, I'm currently building a Flats Flyer, but just started priming the bottom today. It'll be a while before I'm finished with the hull, but currently I'm in for around $2,500. I don't see too much in lumber cost to finish, maybe around another $1,000 to $1,500 at the most, and that includes foam...

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

Has anyone used Interlux's PrimeKote, followed by Brightsides, below the waterline on boats that are in the water for only a couple days max? I see their website states not to use PrimeKote below the waterline, but I will trailer the boat most of the time, with maybe once or twice a year leaving it ...

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

OK, weather hasn't cooperated with me, but I did get the final sanding done yesterday and ready for primer, I think. Was going to try the Rustoleum paint but after exchanging emails with the tech department, I've decided against it. They do not recommend their primer/paint products for below the wat...

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

Did I ever say that I hate sanding? Oh yeah, I did :cry: :cry: :cry: About halfway through the final sanding of the bottom before primer and paint. Hopefully, with the time change, I can get a little done each night before it gets to dark to work. Maybe the first coat of primer next weekend!!! :D :D...

Re: Flats Flyer Build in S.C.

Kelly, Correct me if I'm wrong, but I cant remember any board over 4 foot, except for the sheer, chine, keel, and the top of frame #1. Of course I'm just finishing up the hull this weekend, weather permitting, and don't know what I'll have for the deck yet. Should have the final sanding completed th...
