Re: Kids in the Shop

So this is a topic near and dear to my heart. Not the least of which is that RB14 was built by Kyla and me! But seriously, I have taught high school wood arts for years and find that given the opportunity to learn in the woodshop, kids thrive. Especially those with little or no exposure to doing thi...

Re: Piping Bag for Fillet

I like to reinforce the cut area on the corner of the bag with packing tape while the bag is still flat. The packing tape keeps the hole from expanding inadvertently while squeezing and give the tip a little more directional control.

Re: Jack plate expert wanted!

I've got a Boston whaler where the previous owner used a jack plate to switch from a 20" outboard to a 135hp 25". The manual plate is set to its highest setting to pick up the height needed mounted in the stock holes in the transom and that part works fine. It only sets the motor back a couple of in...

Re: Hull support after flip?

I don't flip onto a trailer because I don't want the trailer to be in my way while doing interior. Also, the working height is determined by the trailer. Instead, I like to make a very simple "cradle" out of plywood and pipe insulation that retains the hull shape for after the flip. This is attached...

Re: The “Must haves” list

Plastic cups. Lots of them. I mix epoxy by volume, so I like the clear 18oz good quality.(Keg cups) Even for mixing small batches of epoxy it is nice to have a bit extra room to stir and the tongue depressors reach the bottom.

Re: DE 24ish

Can I ask your anticipated GPH and speed with the 150 at cruise vs. wide open if you have had time to think about it? I haven't come across it for the DE yet that I have seen.
