Re: Epoxy drying speed

Hey there. There a a few of us here in the Carolina coastal area. I built a v12 and you really should start with Marin slow if you’ve never used epoxy before. You’ll figure it out quick and can get some fast once you’re comfy with it.

Re: BarraMan's Mangusta 21 barraboat in Townsville, AUS

Less of a quote and more of a “thank god it’s not just me and cape man...”

Boats and water make us dumber than a 10yr old boy finding the publications hidden is his fathers shop. Seems Lee forgot to zip up in all that excitement.

Re: 2 stroke outboard under 4hp

It’s just a tax grab here. As long as they think there’s a bigger fine or a better boat to submit for civil forfeiture they will leave me alone.

Re: 2 stroke outboard under 4hp

motor vs boat.... Motors are registered and taxed separately from the hull.

BTW they have still not registered Lil Bit. Phone tells me I need to do it. Mail it in and they tell me I don't because under 12' . Luckily there are bigger boats to confiscate so they leave me alone.

Re: Port A XF 20

The problem you are seeing is the same on every man has with his wife/girlfriend. You say "BOAT!!!" and she says "Don't call me fat!!!!" Interpretation is key. Your phone knows "Q is the top corner based on how the phone was being hold when the picture was taken" but the forum says "Q IS NEVER THE T...

Re: Using plans for models

You may overestimate the Mrs love of my hobbies. Should the process be enjoyable and "non-interfering" to the living spaces, the only reservations will be my budget and enjoyment. Ex: I like steam bending but I'm not sure I want the humidity around the guitars. Ex2: I really want to play with vac ba...

Re: Using plans for models

Don't forget, You can steam the ply and lumber to bend it. Makes it a lot easier to build the little boats, so I am told. The idea is that I can do this in my "weekday apartment" with no specialized tools. For now. Technically I can make a v12 with veneer core using an exacto knife, safety pins and...

Re: Using plans for models

I'm waffling on the scale. On one hand I want to have "a fleet that's representative of reality". Ex the v12, sb18 and vg26 would be same scale. While I really want the v12 to be in the 1/4 scale range that makes the vg26 8' which is just too big. 1/6 seems to be where I'm heading but that's some UG...

Re: Thoughts on small HP outdboard motor for AD16?

Smart move with the 2. You need the low end pop to get out of the way of the idiots in big fast boats. I’d go with the biggest one you can afford that will fit on the bracket. Probably a 5.
