Re: Epoxy encapsulating

Bare with me guys, I’m getting things going but I need some clarity. If I put CPES on my wood, is that equivalent to epoxy encapsulation? I’ve used cpes but then had to sand it smooth, which removed a lot of it, then encapsulated with epoxy. Am I overthinking this?

Re: Epoxy encapsulating

Thanks guys. A couple more questions. Kens said something about everything in the bilge of s a PITA, not sure what that is. Also, if I want my frames stained, will that affect the epoxy encapsulating?

Epoxy encapsulating

Slow startup on my riviera build but moving along. I have stringers built up and frames being assembled. My question is should I encapsulate everything prior to attaching frames to stringers? I have already put CPES on the stringers. I hope to have something beginning to resemble a boat hull before ...

Re: Riviera stringers

Ok so I’ve got enough q sawn white oak to make my stringers with. I will have to scarf to achieve the length and laminate (2 lams) for thickness. Is there a special process to follow? Glue and clamp? Mechanical fasteners? Special epoxy? Being such an integral component of my build, I’m a bit nervous...

Re: Riviera stringers

I’ve checked around and haven’t found any. I was not aware that laminating flat sawn would achieve the same affect as quartersawn. Maley and wertz didn’t have any.

Riviera stringers

Hi all. I am having a hard time finding quarter sawn Doug fir or white oak for my riviera stringers. What other options might I be able to use and/or get my hands on here in southwest indiana?

Riviera stringers

Hi All. Early stages of a riviera build and having trouble acquiring good straight stringers. Can they be laminated from 2 1 by wides with scarfs that are staggered. Thanks for any input here.

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Anyone ever use a Senco composite stapler? They typically make quality tools and their line of staplers are a good bit cheaper than the Raptor.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I think the bulk amount mixes 5 gallons.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Thanks Lee. I’ll take a look at the site. Any idea how much epoxy will be needed? What I’ve read indicates the proxy shield can be used for glueing with a thickener added and the bulk amount has a pretty decent discount. I’m assuming I’ll certainly use that much.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Lee I was considering staining the frames as I’m not sure if parts of them will be visible when finished. When staining the hull is that done prior to cpes? I’m seeing a lot of different ideas people have on here about epoxy.

I realize I misspelled pirogue. Don’t want to get kicked off here for such a foul mistake on a boat forum!

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Hi lee, I’m over in southern Indiana just getting a riviera build started. All my frames are built, still in half sections. I’m wondering about coating them with cpes right of the bat. Do I need to stain them first? And any type stain work ok? I’m not finding a lot of my questions answered in the pl...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Hi Lee, i got your PM and sent a reply, but i am not sure my messages are getting sent. Will you let me know if you received it?

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Hey desert Builder. i am building a Riveria. Just starting. The transom is confusing me. the plan calls for 2 lams of 1/2". Why not a full 1" piece? Or does this piece need to curve around the transom? I'm confused. Any pics of the transom all framed up together? Thanks for any help.
