Re: Graphite paint questions

I've also never been sold on the graphite bottom. To my mind if you are going to add the weight of more epoxy to the hull then you might as well use it it to add another layer of glass, or even kevlar if you really plan to drag it over rocks. Seems like that would add more protection than neat epox...

Re: How much storage do we really need...

I met with my son and his friend who are threatening to finish the LM18 last night. The conversation was all about how to build a Spartan, light, and bad ass skiff with minimum crap (i.e. storage). Anchor locker, below deck fuel, small battery, and lots of clear decking. Bare Bones is a model to fo...

How much storage do we really need...

I was out on a new Flats boat a few days ago (friend is thinking of spending life savings) and noticed there was more storage than a camper the same size! How much stuff do we need to take with us... When I was cruising/sailing, I would carry spare parts, food, water, life saving gear, clothes, divi...

Re: Changing the layout of the FS 14

This is what I did to my FS14, the center cooler/seat/grab bar is removable for making more room for camping gear and bean bag chairs... The foredeck/casting deck is lower, makes it easier to step up on. I installed a cockpit deck (some call it a sole) with foam under it. https://forums.bateau2.com/...

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

So I went ahead and purchased (from Sailrite) 2" thick, medium density antimicrobial/ biocide cushions for Tipsy's cabin. I'm probably purchasing things out of order for sailing but I figured I'll probably have her ready for a motor sail/ test launch long before I have the sail and the rest of her ...

Re: LM18 LS RC

Nice. 8) hmmm... DeLand, Florida... What's your plan for anchoring that structure down? Did you use those big ground screws? That's what was done with a shed we had in Bradenton, and a few days I was mighty glad of it, and that was a heavy stick and frame shed, with a lot of weight on its floor hol...
