Re: GERONIMO - Finally painted - ready to flip

Beautiful finish. I'll be happy if mine is anywhere near as good as that.

Re: Tahoe 23

Finished epoxying and sanding and finally ready to start painting the bottom. You don't know (or probably quite a few of you do) how good it feels to be moving on to a new phase. It really felt like I was bogging down and would never get to a flip. Using a high build 2 pac undercoat and will finish ...

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Donn It's looking good. Even with my building frame height it was still low work on shaping the sheer notches, but any higher and I would not have been able to reach the keel. One thing I would have done if I was doing it again would be to drill the shaft hole and rudder holes before planking. (See ...

Spray rails

Screw spray rais from the outside and plug or screw from the inside?
If you screwed from the inside through the chine it would be easier to replace if damaged. Yes or no?
What type of sealant would you use to attach the spray rail?

Re: Tahoe 23

Almost finished the epoxying of the hull. Finished the fibreglassing and just a few more coats of epoxy on the sides and transom. Will post some pictures shortly. Have researched paint for the bottom below the waterline, but have a couple of questions about fittings. 1. Spray rails: Most seem to fit...

I used sapelle at 4 mm for the final layer and had no difficulty with it bending to the contours of my Tahoe.

Re: Tahoe 23

Thanks for the good wishes.
It has been raining on and off for the last few days so I have feathered the overlaps and sanded the glassed area and washed her down for the next layers of epoxy. But will hold off till it clears.

Re: Tahoe 23

Well finally back into the build. Treatment seems to have gone well and the oncologist is happy with the results but they will never give you a definitive answer. By the time I finished treatment the weather had warmed up to 35 to 40 degrees C. Just too hot in the shed to work. Especially with epoxy...

Re: New monaco build down under

I got sapele from Britton timbers at half the price quote by anyone else. At the time I think it was $1700 for 1/2 a cube. There is one at Prestons in Sydney. Sorry not sure where Prestons is. They can supply you with a listing of packs for sale and dimensions of boards in each pack

Re: Congratulations Comanche

Yes the race is 630 nautical miles (1170 km) basicly off shore of the Australian coastline. Between the main land and Tasmania is the Bass Strait through which pass the Roaring 40's trade winds around the bottom of the earth (Great Southern Ocean). So it can get very cold and very very rough. The re...
