Re: 1981 Dolphin 20' Commercial

Hi, I think others with more experience will chime in but I think you will just want 17 oz on your stringers. The mat is good for adding thickness but does not offer the strength of the biax. So no extra strength and soaks up lots of expensive resin. Therefore, I think most folks just use biax with ...

Re: Privateer Retriever Rebuild

A few questions: 1. I used 17oz tape on the deck to hull joint. I'd like to make that transition look better. I just hit it lightly with a sander. What would be the best way to fill this weave and make it look better? Fill weave with fairing compound and sand in? The boat will just be a fishing boat...

Re: Privateer Retriever Rebuild

Thought I'd give an update. I've redone my chase tubes, installed a new drain with flaring tool, installed bilge pump, and cut out and installed sole since my last update. Here are a few pics. I didn't do the best job at photographing details of the work. I find pics and epoxy work really difficult ...

Re: Another Privateer Roamer Skiff

Ouch man...feel your pain. They take a lot of time and effort for sure. And the clock is ticking on the epoxy so you feel frantic. I used two layers of 12oz on mine wet on wet. Probably a little easier to wet out than 1708. I just put my deck down last week and used 1708. My back was aching also for...

Re: Another Privateer Roamer Skiff

Sounds good. Have you sourced a new rub rail for either this boat or your last? I'm wondering what the factory uses for just the simple, no insert rubrail that was standard on the Privateers? Could call I suppose.

Re: Another Privateer Roamer Skiff

Been following along. Great work you are doing. Would it make sense to install (even temporarily with some braces) all but the center stringer and then make measurements level with what you will have installed at that point?

Re: Another Privateer Roamer Skiff

Know you are no noob to this but I've been: downsizing with this: https://www.birme.net/ then uploading and using the url code from this: https://imgbb.com/ Seems to work well. Excited to see your new project. I've been over your last privateer many times over the past as a source of inspiration and...

Re: Another Privateer Roamer Skiff

SlickCav,
Hey man, I don't see some of your photos for some reason. Really looking forward to you doing another boat. I enjoyed your first Privateer rebuild very much.

So, you sold that Roamer and also sold the Sea Ox and now have another Roamer?

Thanks
