Re: Project *OverKill* Tahoe 23

My work bench top is a four inch thick slab of solid southern yellow pine. I gave a couple good coats of linseed oil and let it dry out for about a week. Then gave the top a coat of Johnson's paste wax. The wax allows glue drips to pop off pretty easily. You'll need to freshen up the coat of wax eve...

Re: Overniter in SC: Flipped 5-27-17

My intent was to use a permanent "below deck" tank because the tank will be completely concealed inside the frame work of the rear bench and motor well. It won't be moveable. If I end up putting two tanks in the aft corners on either side of the motor well they would definitely be pretty much perman...

Re: Overniter in SC: Flipped 5-27-17

Hey All, Work continues after the flip. I've started framing the motor well, pouring flotation foam, fitting the sole, mocking up deck beams and a host of other nick knacks. I'm at a point where I need to make some decisions that will influence weight distribution. In particular where will batteries...

Re: Overniter in SC: Flipped 5-27-17

Looks beautiful and congratulations on the flip. Always a satisfying moment in the build process. I like the lines of your hull. Is it going to be a Carolina style or is that just excess plywood giving the impression of a bow flare? Regardless, it's going to look beautiful on the water. I was also ...

Re: Overniter in SC

Well, after the painting saga was finally completed I set about securing a trailer. Ultimately went with and aluminum I-beam trailer from Venture that I bought through a dealer in Columbia SC. I just couldn't find a used trailer I was satisfied with at a cost that made it worth going used. In the lo...

Re: system 3 pigment dispersion

I've often thought it would make a good bilge paint where UV isn't an issue.

Yeah, love that series. Have watched them all. Seeing the other techniques and types of construction is really interesting.

Re: Overniter in SC

Which supermarine paint did you use? I was planning on using ironside, but could change my mind. Just looked, and can't find it online any more. Bryan I used the Ironsides. My whole experience with supermarine was very frustrating. The whole primer issue in particular. The Ironsides was no treat ei...

Re: Overniter in SC

Well the paint job is finally done. Turned into quite a project but the results are satisfactory. I chose supermarine paints for this boat and while the end result turned okay I don't see myself ever using them again. As you'll recall I had major problems getting the primer to cure and had strip it ...

Re: Outboard recommendations?

Andy, I appreciate the offer and if you weren't in Kansas I might be tempted to take that off your hands. I imagine by the time I got it to SC I'd have considerably more than $200 in it. And I doubt I'd have the expertise and access to parts to complete a resto on one of those early 60's inline sixe...

Re: Outboard recommendations?

That's definetly one of the options I'm considering Matt. I need to learn how to check compression myself. Anyone know what's required to do that and how expensive the tools are? Here is an example of what I'm considering as well: http://charlotte.craigslist.org/boa/5983629199.html This is a 1989 90...

Re: Outboard recommendations?

That's a bit more than I'd prefer to spend but not out of the question. One of the things I'm having trouble with is determining which rebuilders/dealers are really reputable and do good work. Random Google searches will yield lots of results but reviews are often hard to find.
