Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

It sounds similar to a product called CPES (clear penetrating epoxy sealer) sold by Smith and Company. www.smithandcompany.org

Re: GT27 Build (Wes K)

Wes:

I have a version of the ladder you were looking at earlier attached to my boat. It works great -- you are welcome to come by and check it out in person.

Re: GT27 Build (Wes K)

Wes: They will only be too small to hop a three foot transom for a couple of years. You could carry a little step stool on board like the one in the link below, and any time the kids are over the side, you set it on the top of the bracket. Plus, little kids will probably need a step around the boat ...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

That pram is a beautiful boat. One thing about lapstrake construction -- its really hard to put on a layer of fiberglass once its all put together, and if she's going to live on a cruising sailboat, being fiberglassed will help with her maintenance. One work around is to fiberglass and fair the stra...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

What about a couple of little strips of stainless to mechanically fasten the tops of the flaps on the transom and dress them up (from that black line up about an inch and maybe a half inch beyond each side of the flaps)?

That boat is a thing of beauty.

Re: GF 16 layout advice

Hey Lincoln: The GF16 is a very cool boat and the build is surely approachable. Noles built a really beautiful version. His build thread is thorough, and he has lots of details on the tiller extension and hand bar, including ideas on changes he would have made. Putting weight in the front of that bo...

Re: GT27 Build (Wes K)

Hey Wes: I just saw your thread. The GT27 is a very cool boat, and you are making great progress. I live in Augusta and would love to see your build. You were asking about trailer bunk materials. One choice would be 1 x 6 ipe' bolted and epoxied into a 3 x 6 board of any length. The stuff is hard as...

Re: Looking for advice

Richard:

Raymond's last name is Martin. His business is called Martin Marine Design.

I sent you a pm with his email address and cell number.

You would enjoy talking fishing and Larry stories with him if nothing else.

Re: Dust collection and sanding

For a great solution at a bargain basement price, I bought a small (2 gallon capacity, I think) shop vac at Harbor Supply ($20 maybe) and cobbled together a hose that fits into the dust outlet of a Dewalt sander. With the shop vac turned on, a dusty workspace while sanding is a thing of the past. It...

Re: Looking for advice

Hey Richard: I don't know if you remember it, but Larry took the step transom out of a Parker 27 and installed a smooth transom and engine bracket for a crab fisherman a few years back. He talked about how solid the hull was, and once the engines were two feet behind the smooth stern, that thing had...
