Re: new the forum and first time boat builder

OK Ed, I will render an opinion... I used enough screws to hold the plywood bonded everything with epoxy. I put packing tape on one side of washers to keep the screws from countersinking. After the epoxy cured I removed the screws, drilled countersinks and reset the screws without washer. I suspect ...

AwlBrite ???????????

I've been using Interlux Perfection Plus. The plan was to finish the hull, topside, dash, arm rests, seat frames, and a small door. The hull, topside, and dash are done (except for some edges where some idiot sanded though the finish!!!). The other interior parts need about three more coats of finis...

Henk,

The inside edge can be used to support the sole.

Re: WithDrew's Ski King

Hey WithDrew, I like the curved transom. Here's an example from the gallery. https://boatbuilders.glen-l.com/ski-king-design/nggallery/ski-king-design/Ski-King-by-Jonathon-Clark,-Lyme-Regis,-UK It is an extra step or two but is easy to do. The process would be similar to the process the barrelbacks ...

Wisconsin assigns the HIN number and the license number, which are different. I don't think there is a vanity option for boats.

Re: Home Depot - Sande Plywood

Just to be clear...Sande is fine for marine plywood, so is Douglas fir. That doesn't mean that ANY plywood made from Sande or Douglas fir is marine grade. The difference between interior plywood, exterior plywood and marine plywood is all about the glue and the voids. If Sande Plywood sold at HD say...

Re: Home Depot - Sande Plywood

I am not familiar with Sand plywood and took a look at HDs description, also at Menards. I see "marine" mentioned, without specification. A comment on the HD sight gives me pause... Response from Sandeply June 4, 2020 Hello. Thanks for your feedback on Sandeply. Our plywood does NOT contain exterior...

Re: Glen-L 15 build

Templating with double stick tape works great. I cut gussets a little oversized, four the same on the three straight inside edges. Then used a templating bit bearing on the finished frames to get the two outside edges. I suspect you have a three piece floor timber, one piece chine to centerline each...

Re: New Member - Cumberland, Maine

Welcome Dan, I look forward to seeing what you do with the Tahoe. The 35* angle sounds about right. The plan measured angle and the skewed angle of the sheer are not the same so I would cut it after. I cut mine while making frames, they needed a lot of "adjusting" (may have been operator error too)....

Re: Virginia Barrel

Corey,

These are the people I talked with.

www.skidim.com My engine came from this one. They don't show engines now, maybe they're out of that now.

www.michiganmotorz.com/turn-engines-c-31_49_79.html Knowledgable but didn't have what I wanted.
