Re: Roman´s OB15 (First Time Builder)

All of that stuff should have been glassed in before the foam. The foam sticks like a tiger but I am not sure it will make up for not glassing in the bulkheads. I think I would run this by JM in the top section. That way he will see it as he does not always monitor the threads here.

Just to make sure did you glass the stringers and bulkheads in before you poured the foam?

Re: Engine mounting

Most of what I know about propping an outboard hull is based off them having a flat run in the stern half. With these hulls having so much rocker I think getting the motors set right is going to be tough.

Re: AB23

If you build one I too hope you will start a build thread. I think you will find the guys on here are not like some other places. I would venture to say 99% of what you will receive is praise and if asked helpful suggestions. Those that only criticise are sent packing pretty darn quick.

Re: Deck material for whitewater inflatable

Finishing the edges is the biggest problem. You can do like FG says and use foam and it will look good. You can also use solid wood, plywood edging or you can glass it then route out about 1/2 inch of the edge and fill with puddy. The commercial fishermen around here have taken to building their dec...

Good looking pup :D
In the past few years I have become a fan of Nidacore/nidaplast/carboncore. I think it is all the same stuff with different names. Lots of folks around here are using it for their boat decks.
