Re: Trailer info for Little Hunk

I guess it depends on the spring load and tire size and tire pressure as to how smooth a trailer rides. My thoughts were that having two axles that are bearing half as much weight will also diminish the the bouncing by half as well. I had figured that a used trailer may do well but since it is a new...

Trailer info for Little Hunk

So do I stretch the trailer beyond the recommendation or do I build the next size trailer? I am plannin...

Little Hunk - keeping it clean

I am interested in oiling or varnishing the interior of Little Hunk. I have never done this on previous boats before but rather, after spilling glue all over and sanding it up for hours and hours, I gave up and painted all interiors with epoxy. Once epoxy is spilled onto a surface doesnt that ruin i...

Re: Fiberglass on Chines

That is an excellent testimonial, the Tahoe that is. On the Jamestown site they mentioned not to use on stitch and glue hulls. I guess it’s not rigid enough to support joints. My boat will be a framed boat. Raka marine epoxy carries Xynole and Dynel in 4 ounce. I was hoping to get some stiffness out...

Re: Just Ordered Little Hunk

Re: Fiberglass on Chines

Hi Matt,
I will be using this boat allot in beaching scenarios where it is common to have some aggregate rock in the surf and furthermore it will be in contact with larger rocks upon occasion. What is a sturdy layup for abrasion protection for the bottom?
Will the plans spec what I'm to use?

Re: plastic slides for a the bunks

What are the advantages of building your own trailer as it seems there are thousands of used ones out there to choose from. I’m inclined to build my own just for the pride of it. But I’d love to hear the “whys and wherefores “ of others who have face this quandary?
