Re: Eric's C21

I use a couple of box fans upwind to suck the fumes away from the boat and out my garage door. The fans are not explosion proof, but so far so good.

Re: Eric's C21

Eric, Sorry you are having problems with the primer. Do you have the reducer? If the primer is going on too thick, try reducing the primer. I used the reducer for both the primer and paint to thin which allowed better flow out. Its hard to say what to do without laying eyes on the finish you are get...

Re: Cvincent's PH18

You are correct, go big or go home. I will foam those compartments in. Thanks

Re: Cvincent's PH18

I have the bilge compartment glassed and I am slowly working my way forward in the boat. I have not decided if I will foam in between the two center stringers. I have gone through almost 4 gallons of foam so far, with almost no waste. I am now thinking this boat will take at least 12 gallons of foam...

Re: Mark's PH18 in Toronto

The 150 HO is a good choice for the weight. I love the options of digital controls & power steering on the G2 models. If this technology ever gets brought over to the 115 class of engines, I would jump on one of these.

Re: Eric's C21

When I applied the system 3 primer I was able to obtain a very nice finish, but had a very fine orange peel. It may have been ok as it was but I applied the EMC surface primer over the system 3 to eliminate the orange peel before the application of the topcoat. I used these products when painting my...

Re: Eric's C21

Eric,

You may want to try a finish primer over the high build. I used the EMC surface primer (not high build) over the top of the system 3 for a smoother finish.

Re: Cvincent's PH18

I have most of the cleats installed for the sole. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/88547/cleats.JPG I started filling the back compartment with 2 part foam. I am using cheap plywood for a template covered with plastic sheeting to keep the foam from expanding above the stringers. http://gal...
