Re: OD 18

Thanks, Jacques. I am not concerned about being able to do it, just wanted to be sure I would not compromise performance too much. What would you recommend as minimum hp? I had a 25 in Nina and was quite happy with it.

Re: OD 18

Basically I like the look and feel there are some advantages in having the motor in a well. (I built Nina). I like Spira's l8 footer but prefer your softer chines.

Re: Panga 22 Build - The Saga Begins

I'm with Larry. I had the same kind of spaces with my LB22. I think Meranti just can't make the bend with some of these designs.

Re: Fuel Tank Support?

Some where I think I read about installing a tank by lightly foaming the corners (nothing on the sides). The foam will hold in in place and still allow for expansion. Might work. I am still unsure how you can vent the space in the coffin to get rid of the outgassing through the skin of the tank. I w...

Re: CAUTION TENNESSEE BUILDERS!!

When I registered my Nina in Vermont I had to pay sales tax on everything I bought out of state. I am pretty sure that I found all of the receipts. 8) Trouble cam when the nice lady behind the counter wanted me to pay on the motor too which I had purchased locally and had a receipt for.
