Re: FS14LS in North GA

When I lived in Atlanta I searched all around for marine ply, I even phoned some of the boat manufacturers around Lake Lanier. The only place I found as a local source was Southern Crown Boatworks. I don't think they stocked plywood at the time, but they would bring in an order for you. This was yea...

Re: new build GT Cruiser 23

One of the things I see frequently when looking at old threads is broken links to their photos, which pretty much contain the most useful information. I'd suggest uploading your pics to a builder gallery at this site, rather than trusting anywhere else. I like Imgur, e.g., but five years from now wh...

That's the kind of boat you dress up to go for a ride in!

Re: Cold weather and super fast epoxy.

I haven't found a 5 minute epoxy that made a good, long lasting adhesive, maybe they're out there.

Re: new build GT Cruiser 23

Not only does sharing pics feed our desire to see boat stuff, but it can also help you because sometimes one of the experienced builders may notice something in your pic that can cause you trouble and have the chance to alert you to the issue long before you would have found it to be an issue. So y...

Re: HMD 19 - Yoda's legacy continues

I like your approach to getting from A to B as expediently as possible.

I know you've already been working on her a while, but did you consider building a cradle for the hull and moving it under the carport? Not sure how much room that would give you above, just a thought.

Re: Paint Removal

Anything that would have stripped the epoxy paint would probably have compromised the epoxy below it, and I didn't even look to see if such a product existed. I don't remember Larry ever using a paint stripper. All that said, if you think you can find something that would soften your paint and not ...

Re: C19 vs CX19

I don’t know where you are [San Diego, California]- but I find a center console to be much more seasick people friendly because of the breeze! Also a center console puts you closest to the center of the boat where you experience the least motion. It helps to be able to see the horizon; the mind and...

Re: PX14 Question

If it was me I'd leave them empty. The plans say it's easy to car-top the hulls at 45 pounds each, you'd increase that quite a bit with foam, and with extra weight the small boat will not be as responsive to sail . . seems like keep it as light as you can is the way to go. Another consideration is t...
