More like triple with a cabin.

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

More fairing. I premark things to get an idea about fill depths/areas. Look close where yellow; see a big zero.

Re: Panga 20 Build

No need for that. Just make sure your cap is epoxy sealed and sanded with 40-60 grit before you glue it down into thickened epoxy and make sure the base is also precoated to avoid drysuck. Make sure the glue consistency is decent and coverage good. The only reason to use biaxial in that seam would b...

Pinhole factory

Check this out guys.

My homemade fairing mix.

And no, it is not too dry.

It is 480g epoxy, 25g cabosil, 75g sil32 balloons

I am prefilling these holes with Quikfair before I sand and fill them with dust.

Re: 23 ft Hartley Cabin boat repair/rebuild and hull extension

Hi guys Added something extra..... a solid piece of fibreglass, 25mm thick, to ensure that the transducer mounting screws does not have to screw into the transom. I am trying everything to ensure the transom stays as dry as possible. Bear in mind the installation is rough and needs to be finished. ...

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

I was thinking more the psychical linkage. Where you would need to connect/disconnect in 3 places. Then keep it aligned so it is the same every time. I could see fly by wire would be a bonus.

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

She is looking good!!! So, if you was to meet up with Klingons or other unlikeables, getting into a fire fight and take on heavy damage, can everything separate and travel (at less than cruise speed) on their own power? :roll: :D The hull looks like a boat, big boat by itself and the cabin too. Is ...
