Re: MY BUILD LOG OF MY LM18 RCLS

Got to hot! Taking a break. I ordered a 3 gals kit of epoxy.. Will need more late next week. I think the round chine cost me a gal of epoxy!

Wow! That is going to be a sweet boat. I am enjoying your build and can't wait to see the first low sheer version on the water.
Thanks..

This is a boat for your neck of the wood! Not the low sheer, you got some big boats up in Jack. I maybe wrong..

Re: Eastern NC SK-14

Looking very nice. I'm building the LM18, way too much storage for me.... I foamed in (BBC's two part foam) the bow. The next compartment will be enough to hold every thing and a battery to boot!
