Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Pushpits and pulpits can take a real beating (of course that will never happen to you :D ) so mount them very robustly. Through-bolted backing plate is my recommendation.

Re: FS14 Installing the skeg after Epoxy/Graphite bottom

Probably any of the above is OK but unlike many I didn't want to put holes in the hull so I used Dougster's method.

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hey, we're all particular about showing workmanship that we're not proud of, but I'd still like to see the carbon pushpit.

Re: FS14 Installing the skeg after Epoxy/Graphite bottom

I think Jacques says you can just epoxy the skeg to the hull, but I glassed mine. That would be a lot messier, but no reason it couldn't be done. If you're going to drag it around on the skeg you may want to consider it.

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Excellent, Karl, perfect.
Could you have used tape to hold the cleat in position while you struggled under the deck to get the screws in?

Re: Hatch lips

How are you going to dog them down? Should be OK if they're tight. You'll have to replace the gaskets every so often.

Re: Reefie's LB26

It is my understanding boats over 20 foot do not require it. I was really surprised when I went through my buddies 34 foot California.

Re: second rowing station

Thanks, Evan, for responding...I'll try the 5 gallon jug. Having the person in the stern sit on a cushion just forward might work for trim, but I have a feeling they'd get annoyed being punched in the face with every stroke. :help:

second rowing station

The V10 is great for a single rower, down at the stern and not so good with a second person in the stern seat, and then pretty good again with a third person in the bow. Would it work better for two persons if you installed a second set of oarlocks between the bow and center seat, and rowed from the...
