Re: “The Beast”

And you make cabinets for a living? Ever thought of diversifying?

Great work! :D

Re: Yoda's HMD18

Dan,

Sorry to hear about these struggles. I wish you luck.

There might be a boat building club nearby. That's where I would start.

I thought I read to leave 48 hours. :doh: I think 4 hours was a bit quick. :wink:

Re: Part A of foam hardened in the jug

Putting part b in part a? :lol:

That stinks. Hopefully this isn't a recurring pattern with the formulation. I know several of us had problems with the foam shrinking. :(

Did you try soaking the jug in a tub of hot water?

Re: GT27 Build (Wes K)

One of the nice things about foam adhering to the frames and stringers is that it adds stiffness and it doesn’t come out. The older two parts is what was the problem. The newer two part foams don’t (aren’t supposed to) absorb water.

The old foam said that too... :doh:

Re: FS18 Bottom touch ups

I'd consider placing chopped fiberglass and thickened epoxy into gouge and then going over it with graphite epoxy.

Great write up and lots of good information!

Thanks for the honest statement! I'll be staying away from Mercury's motors. :lol:

Very nice indeed. Will look even better without all those clamps! :)
It will indeed.

Looking good! I am looking forward to seeing how you join the front and back pieces to the sides! :help:

Can you do a "how to" when you get this figured out? :doh:
yep :)

As far as interfacing a Mercury motor with a Simrad Go and hooking up the fuel tank sender anyways :P
Apparently that's better than what you found! :lol:

Good luck! You're making great progress.
