Re: Honey I shrunk the foam....

I had the same thing happen on my FS13. The consensus was it was a temperature issue. :(

Jacques said to cut the foam away from that panel and pour some more foam in.

I notice you didn't have a cleat installed. Lack of rubrails was another suggestion that could have avoided the warpage.

Re: FS14- Bayou City Boat

Strip the sheathing from the bundled wires only for the parts that will be in the chase tubes and one end. Which ever end that needs to keep the sheathing is the end you insert the de-sheathed wiring into the chase tube. If both ends "need" sheathing, use heat shrink to re-sheath the wire bundles. M...

And epoxy sensitivity :(
Sorry to hear this. I've been wondering how you could have avoided it this long with that amount of epoxy.

Duckworks has the tyvek sleeves, iirc. BBC should probably carry them too. Hard to have too much PPE.
BBC sells them!

Re: GT27 Build (Wes K)

What's the stringer height at the stern in a GT27? The GT23 is ~9" and supposed to float in 6" of water. The study plans for the GT27 say float in 8" of water. If the stringers are ~10.5" or higher, I don't think you have much to worry about with self draining. :)

PK78 Fit a Twin Mattress?

If anyone has the plans, would an XL Twin mattress (38″ x 80″) fit in the above boat? If not, how about 38" x 75"? The wife thinks the baby is almost ready for a bed. :help: I want a nautical or hunting theme. Nautical gets a boat, hunting gets a plywood Jeep. I'm hoping for the nautical theme as th...

PK78 Pictures Wrong

Unless someone scaled a PK78 and added a center console, there are pictures of a GV10/13 mixed in. :wink:
