Re: Rustoleum Boat Paint

Over the years Rustoleum has been a pretty dependable company and their paints have lived up to their claims. I recently used some water based primer of theirs, the claim that it will work anywhere. It went on fast and dried quick. Think you are right in trying it first. Do they sell quarts? They w...

Rustoleum Boat Paint

Was in Lowes this evening to pick up some rattle cans for a project for the LOML and saw these on the shelf. Don't know anything about them, but will start doing some research, maybe try a test piece just to see how it looks/applies. Has anyone else seen/used them?

Bryan - I think that's who I saw comment on how happy they were with it. If I recall, it was on a Zip.

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

Kelly It's been nasty down here lately, but much nicer than the crap in the NE. I've read somewhere that someone had great success with their Ironsides paint. Is that what you used? What kind of problems are you having with it? I'm leaning towards the Interlux Brightsides as a lot of folks have repo...

Does the cold weather keep you out of the shop and this is what you're doing to stay busy? Neat idea Bill.

And I thought I was close between the bow and air conditioner, but at least I have inches, unlike Carl. Looks like he barely has an inch.

Re: Graduation from the University

Congratulations! I was a non-traditional student as well, starting my engineering degree program at 31 and finishing at 40. Can't believe that was over a decade ago, but it was worth every headache I got from late night studying and complaints from my wife due to lack of together time. We're now rea...

Re: Varnish Instead of Fiberglass?

I did my transom first, then built up the bottom edge to get a sharp corner. After that, I placed the bottom glass. This is what most people on this site recommend.

Re: I guess it's time to come out of the closet!Bartender 24

I see where you're planning to go with the Yamaha 115, good choice IMO. I have an FX115 on my Hurricane and love it. Very dependable and fuel efficient. I usually run about 6 hours each weekend up and down the intercoastal and only have to fill the 40 gallon tank about every 5 weeks.

Slow day at work and I read your build blog start to finish. What a journey! I know you're looking forward to splashing her and what a great thread. Looking forward to seeing the final product.

Re: knee surgery

Hope you have a speedy recovery. My mother had both her's done a couple years ago and her only complaint was not having it done sooner.

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

OK, so I'm nearing the point where I need to prime & paint the bottom of the Flyer. I still need to sand and apply a couple more coats of epoxy plus add additional fiberglass at the corners of the chine & keel. I'm leaning heavily towards Interlux Brightside over their PrimeKote primer, but ...

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

Finished fiberglassing the bottom this weekend. Only got 2 coats of epoxy on her before stopping for the day. It's going to get cold tonight, down into the low 40's tonight, so I didn't want to have wet/tacky epoxy before sunset. I'm using West Systems fast hardener, which is good down to 40 per the...

Re: Metal Marine Tanks (mainly welded aluminum)

Just a note to let you know we're all following your thread. I have enough going on just building the Flyer and all my extra time and money are going into it, so I don't think I'll tackle building my own tank, this time. Thanks for all the effort you're putting into this thread, I know many are lear...
