Re: 1979 19 ft Sea Ox rebuild

You may get a variety of opinions on your question. Mine is just that... I'm not totally clear how you plan to terminate the top of the transom. You definitely want the interior glass to meet the outer skin. I know you know that. I don't think you want to wrap the interior glass over to terminate on...

Re: 1979 19 ft Sea Ox rebuild

My transom (wood) has a routed interior edge that allows the interior glass to take the curve and to meet the exterior glass. This is then cut / sanded flush prior to finishing and encapsulates the wood well. Not sure how Coosa would do with a router? Looks like you are just about ready for glassing...

Re: Privateer Retriever Rebuild

Thanks man. You're lucky to have that available to you. Hope he can get you a deal on a Dometic steering unit - rascals are pricey. I installed and bled it with my 10 year old daughter. It became comical after awhile. Def a two person job - or one person with elaborate setup. Got it all straight tho...

Re: Privateer Retriever Rebuild

Benn, Hey man, looked at your project! We're brothers from a different mother. Looks great! Funny seeing the exact same model being worked on. I like that improvised splashwell. The low transom can be concerning at times. I'd be interested in seeing how your's held up after 10 years of use. Bet your...

Re: Privateer Retriever Rebuild

Benn Thanks for reaching out! I will definitely check out your privateer rebuild. I don't have FB, but my wife does. Your privateer may hold the title for greatest distance traveled from NC! I've been working like a crazed man on mine lately. Most evenings I'm out there. It rained for practically 2 ...

Re: 1979 19 ft Sea Ox rebuild

Good info above. I use slow in NC generally. It will be so hot here in another month you will have a hard time mixing and wetting out in large quantiites before it kicks. The ability to climate control (even a bit) your garage will be helpful.
