Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Allright, Bogieman! This is one of the boats I really like to follow, so like Karl says, don't stint on the pictures. One of the most admired builders here, the sorely missed Cracker Larry, was not only an expert builder, but also very expert at documenting his work with excellent pictures. It was m...

Re: D5 Build

Well, there's rowing and there's rowing. I don't think you'll make three knots with a paddle and a mile will be very tedious. If you are really going to use your own muscle with no outboard for anything longer than 100 yards, I would go with real oars and the skeg size the designer specified. What's...

Re: posting pictures

Do you upload to the gallery, is that where the problem is? ...or.... Sometimes I get the "cannot determine size" when I'm pasting from an online window. I think that is because the saved link has more than just a photo in it; it has some html also. Sometimes you can get around this by right-clickin...

Re: Copper epoxy coat?

That makes sense. Like Tom says, if your goal is antifouling, this is probably not going to be your best choice. In the US, graphite powder is available and cheap, but someone on the forum has used aluminum powder. If copper is cheap and available to you, I see no reason not to use it. But you shoul...

Re: Systems 3 yacht primer

This discussion comes up frequently. S3 says it is cured if none comes off on a licked finger, about a day. That was good enough for me and I've had no problems. Other very knowledgeable, ok MORE knowledgeable builders have said a week but that is not what the manufacturer says. The problem with thi...

Re: FNG questions

Can you make a mock-up with cardboard and pvc to see if you can get it out the door if you slant it or put it on its beam? It is very difficult to visualize just with a measuring tape. This is what I had to do with my V10 to see if I could fit it in my van. You could even get to the point where you ...
