Re: Eric's C21

If the canoe is more stable than the PK12 I'll keep it and let go of the kayak 'cuz it's heavier. How to let it go I du...

Re: Dougster's Scrap Ply Cheap Canoe

Finally finished her. I painted with a quart each of TotalBoat Wet Edge Fighting Lady and Matterhorn White. It's a one part polyurethane, half the price of two part and probably more than double that of enamel or porch paint. Said to be harder than enamel but not as hard as two part. We'll see. It's...

Re: FS17 FS18 fuel tanks built in or portable

My LB22 has a built in tank of course. Plastic. They are a pita to install. Vent 'em, ground 'em, secure 'em, access hatch 'em, fuel fill line, fuel line, sender to dash gauge. Mine needed strapping in tightly but be sure to give it room to expand :doh: . The thing took lots of time. And now it ofte...

Re: My FS18 Straight Shear hard chine Splashed 6/15!

Very cool, thanks for the post. A quick search shows my local HD has that in stock and it would be very handy on my SK14.

Re: FS14 Wolf's build

Nice color. What enamel paint are you using? I'm trying a one part poly (Total Boat) on the Cheap Canoe to see what it's like, but I like the idea of cheaper enamel and touch up now and then till time tor repaint.

Re: QuickFair Vs MixYourOwn - GF16

Recently, on the cheap canoe, I seemed to think I got most of my pin holes from a mix your own West 410 mix. Not sure about the Bateau's mix. Didn't seem to get pin holes much with Quickfair.
