Re: Tucker's Squirt

So I ended up getting a SS plate to attach to the bow to protect when trailering. It's not a perfect fit but pretty close after some manipulation. I think it actually looks pretty good and it works really well when trailering.

Re: Tucker's Squirt

Thanks guys, I tried a y-bllock but didn't fit the contour of my squirt. maybe I'll try a rub rail in that area just hate to mess up the contour of the boat just for that.

Re: Tucker's Squirt

What is everyone doing to protect the bow on the trailer during travel? Being wood, I'm not sure how else to prevent this unwanted wear.

Re: Tucker's Squirt

So I received my seat cushions from affordableboatcushions.com and I am quite pleased! Also got the 5th coat of varnish on and will be the last coat for this summer since 90 degrees in my garage with a/c running makes it really difficulty to get a perfect varnish job. I will probably get it on the w...

Re: Tucker's Squirt

Got the last and final board on! Now for tedious finishing work. Also an update on my previous posts/questions. I ended up ordering my seat cushions from affordablboatcusions.com. Simple cushions 2" thick and have a snap system on the bottom that keeps them in place for $275. I figured I would have ...

Re: Tucker's Squirt

Appreciate the responses. Will have to try it all out. Not real hopefully that the steam and water will help with this dent. Also not sure I want the cleats over the cover board seams but I’ll play around with it.

Re: Tucker's Squirt

I do have some of that but I feel like it still doesn't match well enough to keep it from grabbing my attention. Maybe I will experiment with it before I stick it in that dent.

Re: Tucker's Squirt

So I messed up my coverboard! After installing the front section I just happened to dent it with a tool right where the joint is. Quite upsetting! Does anyone have any ideas how to keep the joint from sticking out like a sore thumb? I think after it's filled with epoxy it'll still stick out and I'm ...

Re: Tucker's Squirt

Thanks, I think 1/8 in thick will do better with the curvature near the transom.

Re: Tucker's Squirt

Where is everyone getting their seat cushions made for your boats? Also, I'm getting ready to install the plywood deck and then do deck planking. Is every one else using 1/4 inch thick deck planking or can it be planed down less than 1/4 inch? I'll post some recent pics of my boat since I still have...

Re: Tucker's Squirt

Ok, I'll use washers to fill the gap. Once I know how many washers I need I'll probably epoxy them together to make them into one solid washer to help keep me from dropping a bunch of washers and loosing them when trying to install the helm.

Re: Tucker's Squirt

Ok so I'm at the stage of outfitting the squirt with steering, gauges, fuel etc. all of which I know nothing about and just learning as I go. Currently I'm trying to set up the teleflex steering. When I place the helm together I have this large gap between the steering wheel and bezel. I remember se...

Re: Squirt Finish Line

Great looking squirt! My squirt is being painted the same colors except yours looks nicer with the grey stripe!
