Since the S3 is water based it needs a little time to evaporate all the water from it and set hard. I think a week is recommended. Maybe Jeff can say for sure. I'm not at home to check my instructions. I waited a week when I used it.

Of all the boats you mention I would choose the C21. It has only a moderate deadrise, 16 degrees and is stable at rest. You can compare it to some of the other well known walleye boats like Ranger which I compared it to. You can put a 150hp motor on it and get good speed. going to the fishing ground...

I agree with cape man definitely go with a jackplate and a four blade propeller. Now whether you go hydraulic or manual is up to you. Bob's. also has a hybrid where you can start out manual and then switch to hydraulic. . I don't remember if you built your LM with or without the tunnel but the hydra...
Eric the best thing is to use straps at each frame to pull the sides in before glassing. You can leave them on as you put the frames in to maintain the shape as you lock it in with the frame at each position. Don't forget gaps are good so don't draw them completely tight to the frame dimensions. Lea...

Fuzz having lost mom and dad in the last year my prayers are with you and your mom. Spend what time you can with her as we are missing them now on things like Mother's Day and dad's birthday.
Hey Eric the question always bothered me also. When I asked many years ago I got the answer that the water line was the break point, but you could extend the 3 layers all the way if wanted.

Will - have any video you can post? I hope all is well. Casey Casey, no videos yet. I will someday and will post up. All is well, thanks. I moved the boat to a secure storage facility in Matagorda. It has made getting on the water much easier than hauling the boat there and back. A few weekends ago...
OQ diameter for mechanicals 2-2.5". No for electrical and mechanicals, they need separate chase tubes, say 1.5 for electrical. Mechanicals may rub on electrical cables. For bigger boats I recommend 5 chase tubes, 1 mechanical, 1 main electrical, 1 for the fish finder, 1 for the fuel, 1 extra for thi...

Thanx Tom for the offer on the prop. I had a choice when I ordered the machine and chose a 24p three blade stainless. I'll start with that and see what happens. What info do you need to calculate the prop..? Maybe I could give you some info already..? Wouter the important number is the weight of th...
Good to see you back. A couple of things Never say never and anything you do can be fixed, its only wood and glue. Just ask what you can do to fix it. If you have made a mistake 10 other guys have probably made it also.
