Re: Cape Man's Dory

Maybe it's the wood itself? Not dried out enough? Or is it a harder wood so the epoxy isn't penetrating? In the future maybe add heat for the first priming coat, buy penetrating epoxy, or thin the laminating epoxy a bit?

Thanks guys, finally getting somewhere. Cape Man, your house is still above water right?

Do you mean Lithia Springs Park, or Alifia State Park?

Re: The Plytanic 2.0 - FS17 Build

This damn weather is stalling me out. Where is our typical summer cycle? I'll take afternoon showers over mid day and morning squalls! Anyway, I've been trying to finish up prepping the cap for glass. I'm filling the outside edges. I would have ground the top of the rub rails flat, but because of th...

Re: FS14 Tiller Console

A better option might be to build the FS17 as is, and add a removable tongue to the trailer. With the winch stand removed you can easily fit it in a 19' garage. My last boat was 15.5ft and was to small for our family with 2 small kids. The FS17 has a lot more room. I’d love to see someone’s FS17 in...

Re: The Plytanic 2.0 - FS17 Build

Honestly it didn't bother me from an aesthetics standpoint, but it wouldn't function well with the trolling motor. Bonded down. 5353 I'm starting the rest of the wiring now. It will be a fairly simple arrangement. I'm not super OCD on the routing, but I want it fairly clean and serviceable. No fuse ...

Re: The Plytanic 2.0 - FS17 Build

I decided to tuck the trolling motor plug under the gunnel to give it a bit more protection. Cut out and fitted. 5350 Then I made the nose piece. It's 3/8", with a 1/4" backing plate, and then a 1/4" cleat for the trolling motor. 5349 So I goofed up. I misread my own marks and glued down the cleat f...
