Will do. Not sure when though. Thinking maybe Derby week? My wife is going down in March to check on our house.

Thanks Matt.

Anyone have the cutoff from a 1-1/8" rudder shaft they would sell? I need at least 4" to extend my rudder shaft up to the upper brace and bearing.
Thanks

Reached a milestone today, for me anyway. Finished coating (encapsulating) the interior. I hate mixing epoxy. It sure looks protected though.

That looks good. I am at the same point - I just flipped the boat and am now going to coat the interior before it gets loaded with crud. I am trying to decide if using Poxy Shield is fine (which I still have a lot), or I should order some SIlvertip epoxy - or some other that you suggest.

Poxy shield should work out fine.

Hi Dave. I used Poxy Shield with fast hardener. The fast hardener is thicker then the slow. It runs less and goes on thicker before it starts setting up. It still runs though! I have not used any other epoxys.
Your boat looks great. Do you have a running string of photo's etc? I cannot find it on the forum.

The big difference between poxy shield and Silvertip is that Silvertip is not blushing which is less trouble when applying several coats. Silvertip also has a bit longer pot life. I found plenty of uses for the Poxy Shield in construction (using silica to thicken it) so I wouldn't worry too much about how much you have left (unless its a lot)

Dave. It took a little over a gallon to put one heavy coat on the interior of my 20' BB.
2 coats are recommended , but mine went on very heavy.

A question for Jim Neely - I noticed in a couple of your photos you built a jig for your router to cut the notches in the frames. Do you happen to have plans for that jig?

No plans. I made it myself. If I still have it, it is yours.

Engine installed and aligned. Had to change out my casters, I couldn't roll it around with the extra weight in it.

That stage of the build is always a happy day.
Congrats
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:
