Re: SK14 in TX

Looks rock solid to me---you'll love using it. Good luck on the fairing. The sanding gets tedious but is well worth it. Have you decided on paint yet?

Re: AB23

Just what Fuzz says, criticism is not welcomed here. I've never gotten any over 4 builds and lord knows I must have often deserved it :lol: Support and good advice for sure. The AB23 build would be an exciting one to see documented, so I'm hoping. Thread or no though, good luck on that build! Dougster

Re: Need help deciding what to build.

You can mount a 72" shaft Minn Kota with spotlock on most any of these boats yes they are nice. Not so much for trolling but for the spot lock. Touch a button and you're anchored right over the reef or whatever. Touch it again and move on. Great for fishing.

Re: SK14 in TX

Those seem pretty small to me. The ones I've had like that I just poked at with a box knife, church key, or what ever to see if they were hollow underneath. Then dig 'em out and patch 'em with a little piece of glass or, when really small, fair with epoxy/wood flour.

Re: A facelift of SandPiper, FS14

Looks like dirty, hard work. I'm impressed you stood up to it and have no doubt you will finish with a boat better than new.

Wishing you good weather, Dougster

Re: Double Ender Grand Canyon Dory

OK thanks. I thought you left the cardboard tube in there. You waxed and then pulled it out it sounds like.

Re: Double Ender Grand Canyon Dory

Neat drain tube. How did you treat the inside of the tube? Reach up in there with a brush and epoxy?

Re: FS-17 Again

I wonder why only one square foot didn't set :doh: Anyway, acetone works well, but plain old vinegar might do the job too. I do read about some Acetone products leaving an undesirable residue, dunno how you can tell. My Home Depot acetone seems to work ok but I bet vinegar would do the job. Safer pr...
