Re: Outrage progress

It is two part filler, then warmer = faster cure, cooler = slower cure. You can always add a small space heater under the hull if it is cool at night. Even a few 100W light bulbs can help.

Re: Beach dolly a squirt?

The bare Squirt hull weighs about the same as a Laser (I used to own a Laser), but the motor adds some weight (~100lbs), so the dolly you are looking at should be fine. The Squirt is still much lighter than a typical PWC. I use a modified jet ski trailer for my Squirt with no issues (moved winch pos...

Re: Choice of wood filler color on okoume under west system epoxy

Have you considered stain or dyes on the wood/filler prior to encapsulation? Might be easier to blend them with dyes and stain.

Or would saw dust from the Okoume and epoxy be a better filler? This should match the surrounding wood in theory.

One of the nice things about silica bronze is that a belt sander will take it right down.

Re: Another pee wee build

10 days from cutting frames to planking it, not bad. Retired?

You may be able to launch it this year!

Re: Which MAS hardener and question on adhesive for frame

Hi Brock, Looking at the MAS website: https://masepoxies.com/faq/ At 50F the slow hardener gives you over an hour of pot life, and sets in 15 hours, but takes 15 days for a full cure. the medium hardener gives you 40 minutes of pot life, 9 hour setup, and 10.5 days for full cure. the fast hardener g...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

What's your plan for the rest of the deck? Are you doing a "utility" layout?

Dash will be as unique as the transom.

Re: Riviera seaworthiness?

Didn't someone here build a Tahoe or Riviera by grafting it to a deep-v fiberglass hull? I've seen a few potential builders who looked at Glen L designs and wished they had a deeper V. Would it be possible to have a naval architect reshape a hull to a deeper V? I know the performance is different be...

Did you pre-drill all of those holes?
I would pre-drill. Just remember the order in which you drilled and put in the screws. Install the screws in the same order when you have the epoxy down due since the wood will be under some stress and may not lay the same if secured in a different order.
