Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

For those of you who do not know of Post-curing it is the practice of bringing fiberglass/epoxy laminates up to a higher temperature, holding that temp and slowly reducing that temp to room temp. The ideal epoxy sold by Bateau is Silver-Tip. This requires a rise to 145 degrees. This results in a hig...

Re: GF16 Kansas build

Piperdown take it easy. Your health has to come first. I bought the plans and plywood for a C17 and then broke an ankle falling off a ladder at our cabin on the Mississippi and then tore up my right knee wandering our hills in NC. So it never got built and I bought CL OD18. You will eventually get y...

Re: Mini Brackets

OneWayTraffic you can make that frame like Frame D and move the safety bulkhead back to within a foot from the transom. This doesn't need to extend below the deck just be forward enough to allow for motor tilt with a jack plate. Then put a jackplate on the transom a 6" manual one will work well and ...

Re: Mini Brackets

You are correct I can not find which boat you have finally decided to build so cannot give you an answer tonight. But you should be able to add a 4-6" inch jackplate and build a lightweight platform. Let me know what boat and motor and I can be more specific.

Re: Little chilly today

We are having what the locals call Dogwood winter with temps getting in the 30's and snow in the mountains. I may get a .5 inch at 3500 feet and they are saying 2-3 at 5-6000 feet. You never know at this time of year. :doh: The dogwoods have just started blooming and are pretty. It won't get cold en...

Re: Carolina Spirtfish 25

Jacques answered this a couple of days ago for some one wanting a 27-28 CS. He replied that it would require a complete redesign of the bottom and he did not feel that there would not believe there would be enough interest for the time it would take him to do the work. Have you looked the GS28-X? Fr...

Re: Wood flour vs cotton flocks

Fallguy cabosil is fumed silica. See Wikipedia. Do your home work. You have made enough mis-statements here. Wood flour will soak up the epoxy and will be then encapsulated in it. All of the seams will then be covered with fiberglass tape at least in the 6 plans I have that were designed by Jacques....
