Re: Panga 20 Build

I used 120 grit but did not sand to aggressively followed by 220 grit. I sprayed one full coat of EMC and completely sanded the first coat of EMC with 320 grit. The first coat of EMC makes a very smooth base. I then sprayed two coats of EMC and the finish looks like a mirror.

Re: Jack plate expert wanted!

Fallguy,

I have yet to put the boat in the water. My guess is that the motor should easily clear the water if tilted up with the jackplate in the raised position. I will post a picture of the motor tilted when I conduct a water test on Labor Day weekend.
