Re: Boat enclosures

:D After 1 year of use,zippers are coming a little loose from the sailrite fabric so HH-66 glue is not permanent .Had sewed with ordinary thread also and treated with HH-66 glued but still only held one year.Can't afford sailrite sewing machine so will have to hand sew zippers. :D

Re: Baltic Birch… Good or Bad Idea?

I used a couple of pieces in "Chug" for upright pilothouse sides.Also had a chunk under house air conditioner which delaminated from water.Pilothouse sides are ok so far but are panels so easy to remove.

Re: Long term issues, varnish over epoxy

Before painting "Chug",I tried a single part spar varnish over epoxy-shield.I let it sit for 3 weeks.It was just like I had applied it so check compatability.Was a pita to remove with a water-based stripper so painted instead.A 2 part might have worked.

Re: Taxmasta’s Tug Along 16

Sorry: haven't posted on your build.Nice to see you're back at it.My build took 6 years-funny how time flies and life gets in the way.When I put in in the lake first time, it was a week before freeze-up.Then last summer, it stayed in the water until freeze-up again.What motor are you going with? :D

Re: Preferred width of side planking

I used the buttblock instead of scarfing.And started at the bow working aft.Gotta be careful where the joint is (not on a frame or a bend)I couldn't get the bend with 3/8 so used 2 layers of 1/4 and staggered all the joints.Your boat will be larger so bends won't be a problem.I worked with 8 ft ply
