Re: FS19 New England build

OK, back to the original question. Looking into starting to build the fs19 this fall/winter in my garage. What can I expect working epoxy in colder weather? I built my FS17 in my unheated CT garage 9 years ago. About half of the build was done between November and April. While "fast" epoxy will cure...

Re: Paint on Primer — Can you mix brands?

if it's a 2 part primer then it should be ok, if it's the one part I would be very sceptical. Exactly. 2 part epoxy or urethane primers are virtually 100% compatible. I've used Awlgrip over Sherwin-Williams Proline many times for instance. Never an issue. Would I do this on a big yacht? No,No, of c...

Re: Paint finish

Awlgrip flatting paste is the way to go. It's kind of expensive but works well.

LB23

I pulled this from Jasques' earlier posts regarding materials and scantlings. Yes, that Pelicano 23 is a nice design. The hull shape is very close to my LB26 scaled down 10% and many builders have asked for a smaller outboard version. I may put that kind of boat on my list. I looked hard at the LB26...

Re: Question for Jacques (plywood composite strength)

Thanks Jacques for sharing some very useful information. Those references will be a great help as my Pelicano 23 project continues. Having built 3 of your designs I've become very comfortable and confident with the strength and longevity of your true composite designs. It was a great surprise to see...

Re: AR15 Denver

Great looking build. Nice to see a sailboat as others have said. Not sure whether you have sourced your spars yet but keep your eyes open for suitable donors at all times. I'm guessing that rigs from Vanguard 15 , JY15 or others would be a decent fit. Cost of a full NEW rig will give you chills! Pos...

Re: FS17 Pre Build Questions and Ideas

Maybe I should just eliminate a front casting deck. Use a console with a passenger seat on front. Fuel tank under the console, batteries under the passenger seat. Do you think this weight distribution would be pretty good with the 25 4-stroke. I believe it weighs 156 lbs. That would put the fuel an...

Re: FS17, FS14, OB15 Questions ????

Please continue to give your opinions and ideas. Looking at your FS17, I'm quite sure you know more and are a better builder than I am. Thanks, but that may or may not be true :) My building is good generally but I admit to getting hasty at finish time. Eight years with a banged together console is...

Re: FS17, FS14, OB15 Questions ????

Right now I'm thinking about ordering the FS17 plans in metric and scaling the boat down 5%. That would give me a length of just over 16' and a beam of almost 80". I think that is a size that would fit my needs really well and should perform better with my 25hp motor. I would think twice about this...
