Re: p21 pic

Fastlane, Your aluminum rocket launcher work is similar to my latest project. I'm welding up an aluminum safety railing to go around a cockpit out of 1" tubing. So I found the piece of equipment interesting that you have attached to your drill press to cut round ends in the tubing. What is it? Georg...

Re: Transducer

Yeah, I know what you mean about the fairing. Airmar has other tranducers for that purpose with a better fin shape. There's no reason you can't added a fairing to the one Peter has, other than it a large 5" diameter head and you are trying to adjust it only by 2 or 3 degrees. From Airmar's website: ...

Re: Transducer

Peter, The electronic element is permanently mounted in the bronze housing at the tilt angle. For your CS25, I believe the deadrise is at 17 degrees, and I assume you have the transducer with 20 degree tilt and a range of 16 to 24 degrees. So the beam will not point directly down but outboard by a f...

Tim, Congratulations. she looks wonderful. Love how you finished the cockpit. I watched the video your neighbor filmed of the crane lifting her. It was pretty cool. What size outboard did you get? I like how it sets lower than the top of the MW bulkhead. Jacques, perfect photos for the C17 boatplans...

Eric, Thanks for the real life testimonial and advice on cure time. Just the answer I was hoping for. I might even go with the green-gray. Man, I haven't driven to Spokane in a long time. I like the area, but I can't say I miss the 4.5 hour drive along with the speeding ticket in Cle Elum or Ritzvil...

Spokaloo, Wonderful job on Cloud Cap. Is that a real registration number? I have a question on your paint... How well does the Kirby paint adhere to the S3 primer? I'm restoring a boat and thinking of doing the same. But I'm concerned the Kirby will not hold well because its a traditional paint on t...

I started typing this before Jacques' last post, but I still want to point out what I feel are the advantages of a motorwell. First, I have to agree with Pipefitter's statement that a motorwell and associated stern are very functional. I have a boat with a motorwell and have experienced the differen...

Looks like a good tutorial will be in the "box" too!

You show some nice details in the photos, like how the epoxy-woodflour glue consistancy looks and how you smeared it on the butt-block joint. All simple but invaluable stuff for builders.

Just now getting back online. My wife has been in the hospital for the past week, so that's been keeping me quite business. But she doing well after having lung surgery. I have pictures of the Redwing and Chebacca that Rick mentioned. I'll try to get a few posted sometime soon. Jeremy, sorry I miss ...
