Re: Help making molds for hatches

The thickness I use is 3/8. That together with the gasket I use puts you flush with the gutter. Very light and very strong. This is a pic of the fishbox, large square and small rectangle. On the small the hatch is upside down that is why it looks odd. Big rectangle not shown. SG, on this I have a g...

Re: Help making molds for hatches

No need for the extra 4 layers. I was just telling you what I did for a beaching keel. The while boat will rest on it. Build it with a total if 4 layers of glass.

Re: Insight into First Build

Texasdrifter, You fish right now next to big Texas Sleds with jackplates and big outboards they are heavy, expensive and drink fuel. All the boats you are considering will be lighter weight, require smaller outboards and cheaper to operate. Build the largest boat you can build in your space. Work sm...

Re: Sea chest in XF20 ?

I don't think it will work on an XF20, or for that matter on any of Bateau's smaller boats. The basic concept of this system is the entire chest is below the waterline, which on the XF20 is just a few inches. Just use a pickup, going through a seacock, then a pump to your well. Sea Chests are for b...
