Re: Outboard bolt patterns?

Hi GuyP I had the same issue for my 9.9 Mercury Pro Kicker during the build. I did contact Mercury and they supplied me with a detailed drawing PDF of that particular outboard showing mounting holes and pretty well all dimensions. They wanted the Serial Number / name / dealer where I bought etc firs...

Re: Eric's C21

Hi Eric, So sorry to hear about this. Having been self-employed for many years fabricating engineering scale models, finding clients was the most exhausting and difficult aspect next to quoting a cost - and practically zip vacation time in 12 years. On the up-side, there was no better satisfaction o...

Re: hmd 18.5

Hi harbormaster 18,

Not sure about your question ? All the dimensions are there. Can you explain better or maybe include a sketch ?

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

I feel your pain; it is the absolute gut wrenching debilitating worst kind. Got to the ER and vomited while getting registered. The RN was eating popcorn - a smell which makes me gag to start with. Best part was the sedative while being x-ray scanned and when it finally passed. I could feel it swish...

Re: knottyBuoyz III The TW28 Project

Hi Rick :D Another stint serving the public and the man ? Boat soon - great news. I'm sitting here in my cube answering emails and dealing with Navy stuff galore, the boat is still wrapped up and moving it home from the cottage this spring I hope. Lots of house renos so boat work will be almost nil ...

Re: Xf20

Correct, it does have to be pretty but avoid anything your fingertips can feel. Any small ridges will show thru. I have a few and they bother me :roll:

Re: Can anyone think of a build that ended with gray paint?

Hi Jwhitakeriii,

My boat HMD19 Penny (page 4 in Builders section) is painted with Pettit EasyPoxy Seattle grey with white topside (painted with Monstaliner); it has a cabin however but same colour scheme. The grey is similar to the S3 high build primer.

Re: It begins: C1.9

Looking great cracked_ribs, sure taking shape :D

FYI, cyanoacrylate (super glue) is affected by humidity. Keep your opened bottle in the fridge to make it last; they are not cheap :wink:

Re: It begins: C1.9

Hi cracked_ribs, Consider styrene sheets for your model ? I built mine out of that - same material as those plastic scale kits. It comes in sheets and in thicknesses from a few thou up to 1/4". Super easy to cut, glue and finish. Well stocked hobby shops should have those but commercial plastic shop...

Glue gun is in the tool box; very useful for quick tack gluing until epoxy.
