Re: 86 Mirage rebuild

On the Armstrong bracket for a kicker...looks like a good idea, I'm going to build one, my wallet won't handle buying one. I've done quite a bit of research and have not found a good dimension. Your input would be of great help. Here's what I'm thinking, transom width step with kicker on stern of st...

Re: 86 Mirage rebuild

50oz minimum aye. I have some 8" -12 oz biax tape with 6 oz mat, that will push me over 50oz. Is it a problem that I've wrapped the stringers already? I imagine I can lay 8" tape over the wrap. However, I overlayed the wrap by more than 4 " to the hull. So the 8" tape would just be on top of the wra...

Re: 86 Mirage rebuild

....and the stringers are 2* 1/2" ply laminated together, then tabbed with 4" biaxial tape (1708) and wrapped with one layer biaxial 25oz. Do you think that is sufficient? I was thinking it was overkill, but it's what I could get.

Re: 86 Mirage rebuild

Also, stringers have one layer of same 170z and tabbed with 4" tape.

Think that's enough? The stronger thickness is 2 * 1/2"ply whole thickness is 1."

Re: 86 Mirage rebuild

Will do on the primer! Hmmm, need to think about the kicker more. I'll check out the Armstrong bracket. The swing down bracket is a good idea also. I put 3 layers of biaxial 17oz. The material had a mat, about 8oz, which was pretty heavy, but what I could get locally. The thickness is 3/16" for the ...

Re: 86 Mirage rebuild

Haven't posted in a while, been busy working on the boat and not on the net. Below are some pictures. Next I need to get all white the antifouling paint (or is it gel coat?) off.There is a red coat under the white, thus i'm thinking it must be an antifouling paint. Other opinions? If the white is a ...

Re: 86 Mirage rebuild

After doing some searches to no avail, I thought I would post and ask for your all experience on urethane covering epoxy (with one layer of 17oz with 8oz Matt on top of deck) on top of meranti 1088. I will be using the marinepoxy. Does it turn out clear enough to justify the 1088? How does it hold u...

Re: 86 Mirage rebuild

Has anyone seen an msds for the marinepoxy? In the northwest the temp is fluctuating to the point of needing to heat the shop while the marinepoxy is kicking. My heat source is a wood stove. Want to be sure I don't burn down the shop with an open flame source. Of course, I will keep it ventilated. T...

Re: 86 Mirage rebuild

Thanks for replies gentlemen. It looks like someone else has opened up this boat. Maybe they added extra to the inside skin? In any case, I'll let you know how it goes, all the supplies should arrive by Monday :).
