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...

Re: Larry's method of bolting the T Ttop to the sole

Hey Peter: Search "allen wrench cracker" on the forum, and the second result is what you are wanting. Basically, he drilled a hole where he wanted the bolts to come out of the sole. Then chucked the long arm of an allen wrench in his drill and fed the short side into the hole. Then he spun it and le...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

GB: So it turns out I am late to the reading of your build thread, but also very early. I have read your build thread first page to last over the past couple of days, and the detail, craftsmanship and story are fabulous. The ingenuity reminds me of Peter Curacao’s CS25 thread, and the craftsmanship ...

Re: D5 Build

You were asking about good wood for rub rails. Cracker Larry built a GF 18 for me a few years ago, and we used ipe. It would be perfect for that boat, and it would be easy to install. If you call around to the high end lumberyards in your area, you should be able to find one that has a few 1 x 6 x 8...
