Re: Aussie Belle

Thanks for the comments gents,

Here are a couple more photos out in the sunlight showing the cloudy areas (more than I thought)

Not sure I want to strip the top deck back and go again, what you all think 🤔

Re: Restoring Glory Days a 23' Belle Isle

Thanks for the mention Billy!

Your boat was one of the reasons that I went with the Belle.

Can’t wait to see her back in tip top condition!

Re: Aussie Belle

Hi, Had a little bit of a set back, after I sanded I realised that the epoxy filled strips were a touch low on most and showed up when I wet down the hull, looked like shit! So I masked all the lines and coated them twice to build them up. But I left the tape on for the day and the wife and I had a ...

Re: Tahoe 23

Looking good Tony. Get a move on and you may be ready for a gathering! That gantry will also be great to assist with lifting onto a trailer. I ended up getting my motor sitting very low so don’t have the issue of the room against hatch, although I did put extra camber in the deck frames to assist wi...

Re: What is this?

Thanks gents,

Have had a look this morning and I think it is only on the very surface as there are areas that you can see through and looks clear beneath.

That will be my final coat and will now be sanding anyway getting ready for the poly clear coats which will be sprayed.

What is this?

I put on two coats of epoxy today one coat at 10:30am the other starting at 07:30

As I was getting to the end of the last coat i noticed this in the top of the coat, is this blush??

When in the shed it rained very heavy so there was a bit of moisture in the air

Re: Aussie Belle

Tony, Have had to teach the next generation, the older kids moved out last year, so the younger ones are now helping out. 7 year old daughter helped install the fin this morning and done a better job than most adults that I know. Explained it all once and away she went, she put the washers on, nylon...
