Re: FS14- Bayou City Boat

OQ, there's a chance I may still have the jig I made to route out a recess to allow flush fitting my hatch hinges. If you haven't bought hinges yet and want to use the same gemlux ones I used I'd be happy to give the jig to you. This is what I wound up with: http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpic...

Re: One Off Scooter Boat Build

Anyone got good suggestions for building simple hatch lids without doing the mold. I was thinking of using 3/8 and glassing both side. I don’t need anything fancy no round corners square is fine. Maybe there is a thread somewhere??? I made my hatches from 3/8 ply and have been very happy with them....

Re: PH 22 Build

SC, I wouldn't worry about it. I had the opposite issue with my PH18 stringers. I remeasured very carefully and came out with the same result: http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/55484/normal_SAM_0283.JPG I planed the stringers down and moved on. I've built 1 boat, so take it for what that's ...

Re: Wahoo 160 LTS "SPLASHED"

Your boat looks fantastic. The level of finish is just amazing.

Re the air lock, do you think it's a matter of pump pressure? Would it be possible to put an Attwood model in which has more output capacity?

Re: Lm18 madison 1 step forward 3 steps back

The beauty of the plans and materials used in these boats is you cant screw anything up beyond what you can grind off and fix with some epoxy and fillers :) trust me, we have all done something that needed fixed :p no big deal So true. I can nearly guarantee you that this won't be your only do-over...

Re: Question for Jacques

AA, this is a link to a thread where a guy vented the tunnel in his Kenner. He said running the tunnel vented or not was like having two different boats. He'd keep the vent open unless he was on the flats. Presumably he had a jack plate to lower the motor because, as Jacques said, the prop wouldn't ...
