From what I understand, Aquatek and Hydrotek are just a particular brand of Meranti (Lauan) plywood. Supposedly, you would be better off to buy these 2 brands versus other brands of Meranti plywood. The reason being that Meranti/Lauan which is also sometimes referred to as “Philippine Mahogany”, can...

Aw man! Looks fun and the beer looks great too. I have no excuse for not sneaking out to the lake myself since we have had some 79 degree days around here lately. You have made me think about it though. Colder now but in East Texas that can change in a few hours.

Boat is looking great too.

This is just emphasizing what the others said but, I thought I would chime in. I have used Interlux Brightsides as well as Interlux Toplac. I used the roll and tip method. I have never tried spraying it. I found I prefer the Broghtsides because it seemed a little easier to apply and I actually liked...

Re: Flotation

What kind of flotation is recommended for under deck, sponsons for Tiny Titan? (Spray foam, etc) One thing I have found about foam is that prices vary widely from vendor to vendor. I don't know why this is. The prices Jimmy mentioned seem high, but like I said, it varies. You might also check out U...

The question of polyester vs. epoxy has been debated much on this site. Look over some of the older posts for more info. Here is a recent discussion http://glen-l.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=4128 No reason to say it all again. In short I do not recommend polyester. The best way to go is to cover your...

If you only want or expect the boat to last a few years then you should probably just go with regular exterior grade plywood AC or AB. You can get this at any lumber yard and it won’t cost a lot. It will be kind of heavy though, depending on where you live and the species of wood used to make the pl...

Most epoxy products to be used in a marine situation will act the same way with respect to temperature. Most come with a basic resin and a choice of activators/hardeners that will react differently to the outside temperature. In your case, since it sounds like it will be below 50 degrees, I would ge...

I have given my thoughts on this before so you know where I stand. I too have had guys tell me that poly is great and that is all they use. But I have never understood that based on my personal experience with the stuff as I described in an earlier post. There may be ways to use it where you get bet...

That philosophy will get you a long way. I'm trying to teach that to my kids but kids these days are a bunch of smart-asses and you're not allowed to whoop 'em anymore.

1 gallon, 2 gallons, 3 gallons or?
1 to 2 I would think.
