Re: Port A XF 20

I never managed to get a coat of graphite on without some of those little "nits" . I think mine were mostly tiny graphite clumps. They did seem to disappear over time and use with the boat though. I finally just focused mostly on the side few inches up to the waterline that would be visible. One pro...

Re: Started my Fs14ls

Looking forward to your build thread. I knew nothing years ago when I started my LB22 build, but the forum support and all the pics made it happen. Your in for lots of fun.
