Not sure I’ll use the steering cable drum but I may. Honda does not sell a link arm or tilt tube for the bh5 that I have. So I’ll either have to make my own or go with pulleys.

Now you know that the bottom isn't the source of any performance issue. That gets you to engine trim or weight balance.

That Pee Wee is looking great I have been following this thread for a while and it gave me the courage to attempt my own build. I just bent my sheer and chine logs and am wanting to seal the frame before I put my hull on.

Did you seal yours? If so with what? Not trying to steal your thread. Keep up the posts please you are helping my a ton.

One more question what type of paint did you use on your hull?

Thanks again for all the information.

Looks good Steve... That’s what these forums are for. See one, do one teach one :wink:

I plan on sealing or encapsulating the frames and interior hull with epoxy. Pretty much the SOP around here from what I gather. I didn’t epoxy all the frames yet. Just what I figured would be hard to reach after the flip as I had extra expoxy mixed.

No paint yet. I’ve been using tinted epoxy as I planned on a painted finish. The black is graphite added at 10% by weight. Which will be the finished surface for the bottom after another coat or two.

Looks great! And quite the work platform, puts the work up where you want it. That's going to be a fun boat for sure.

Thanks Peter, it is very nice to have it at just the right work height.

hopefully Santa brings me some bow and stern eyes so I can get them installed so I can strap the boat down to the table. It’s a little wobbly as is.

After the flip I realized I forgot to cut limbers in the bottom of the battens :|

So I cut through th battens to provide a drainage path.

And I figured I should reinforce them. So I made stringers out 6mm ply and glued them in place.

I don’t have a pic but I also put sheets of foam for flotation on top of the battens between the stringers.
