Re: Fast Skiff 17 - FS 17 - Metric plans - Ft. Myers, FL

From what I can see of the build notes, if you have mold A mounted to the very front of the jig then it would be 35 1/2" from the end of the jig(basically stern side of A) to the bow side of B. It sounds like you are on the right track. If I may make a suggestion, try measuring as the notes say, unl...

Re: Drain tube

Moat lug nuts are tapered on the wheel side. Bolt holes on the wheels are countered sunk, lug nuts tapered in order to help the wheel center itself as you tighten it

Re: Another what boat for me????

Thanks again....just I was planning on ordering the Epoxy kit and adding a few more gallons :D So the 22 yrds will be enough to cover inside and out making two passes (overlap in the middle)?

Re: Another what boat for me????

Thanks! Putting together a plan for an order...just a couple of questions... 1. What is the freeboard depth? 2. Plywood on the BOM covers the hull (gunnels(sp?), sole and framing), just not any add-ons? 3. Assuming the answer to question #2 is yes, then I need to add plywood for the two seat bases a...

Re: OB19 build in Texas******A Boat is never done

Peter, I had the same thought! I think it looks good with that "cabin" on there. Nice top Steven. If your ever out towards tawakoni let me know. Maybe there will still be enough water to launch your boat.

I'm in the process of converting a boat trailer into a flatbed trailer. Starting to cleanup/rebuild the hubs. Where would i find some kind of ID number on the hub, in order to get the bearing and seal specs? I know I can take the bearings down to the bearing supply and they will measure it...just be...

Re: Finish on 3/8 " ply

CL,not to detract from the original post, but I'm putting in a new sole in my speed boat and was going with a very similar layout as what you have done in the pictures. Can you elaborate a little on those seat mounts and how you secured the studs in them? Much appreciated
