Re: New GPS

Garmin is the leader in the sky, but most guys I know moved away from them on the water. I swore them off after they changed base camp so no older units could use the program anymore, forcing everyone to upgrade. The maps, even the upgrades, aren't as good, or updated as much, as even Navionics or C...

Re: The Plytanic 2.0 - FS17 Build

Thanks guys. Even fairly rough glass looks decent once it's all one color. I'm working on the motivation thing, lol. That being said my summer allergies kicked in this last week so I'm fighting sneezing while trying to work too. It's all good though as I did get some work done. I finalized a plan fo...

Re: The Plytanic 2.0 - FS17 Build

So I'm done painting the rear compartments, bilge, and inside of the console. The lighter blue is much better. I also secured the fuel chase. 4972 4973 I'm cutting out the parts I laid out before. Admittedly my biggest issue is motivation right now, but I'm still doing at least some small stuff each...

For almost the same time and cost you can build the OD18 and be happier.

Re: Epoxy on duct tape

Not for long. depending on the type it might stick for a bit, but will eventually delaminate. If you are looking to protect something so nothing sticks to it good masking tape will work ok, but the best I have found is clear packing tape. Resin doesn't stick to it at all.

Re: Any ideas on how to use this space...

Looks like a perfect location for life jackets to me. Maybe with a strap or bungee across the opening to keep them in there.

Re: The Plytanic 2.0 - FS17 Build

I finally decided on a path forward with the remaining hatches. I scribed everything out and will finish cutting it out later on. 4947 I moved forward with the first coat of paint for the storage, bilge, and under console. I was playing with it by adding pigment before, and it came out a much darker...

Re: The Plytanic 2.0 - FS17 Build

I'm still contemplating my paint choices. Awlgrip is great and can be rolled and tipped, but it's not repairable, or buffable. Meaning if you goof up the job, or smack a crusty dock (which I have), your out of luck. Awlgrip is buffable, but I'm not set up well for spraying. So I am leaning towards g...

Re: The Plytanic 2.0 - FS17 Build

I'm leaning that way, either awlgrip or awlcraft, but it's a hard pill to swallow at $400+ to once again replace a pricey product that I thought was an upgrade from what i used last time.

Re: The Plytanic 2.0 - FS17 Build

Here is the last support bonded and filleted in place. The top of it will help support the back of the rear casting deck, and the bottom will support the motor well cover. 4926 As far as the paint goes, I've been reading up on the Interlux Perfection. There is a warning on the supplemental informati...
