Re: Insight into First Build

What Narfi said. I built most of my v12 under a tarp stretched between a shed and a fence. When not under the tarp she was under the live oaks. Flooring was some plywood or sand. Ventilation was provided by the good Lord (he really should have replaced the filter though... fewer bugs would be embedd...

Re: Completing The Great Loop (boat?)

Re: Transom repair question

FG1k, Thanks. I do try to keep things lite. Nothing worse than a “pompous idiot”, a phrase which has been used, more than once, to accurately described my approach to things. I can learn though. Just gets expensive replacing the frying pans the Mrs has to use to teach me. My thought on the grinder i...

Which means Fuzz and I should be forbidden to own them.

Re: Transom repair question

... The outer 1708 skin is in pristine condition, I was just wondering if the wood could be removed from the inside without messing up the skin? ... I am very aware it will be tough if it's even possible... 1. I'm not a source of "do it right". 2. I would never put myself in the "guru" category. Th...

Re: Sintes 21 Rebuild

Twelve in Spartanburg S.C. . I'm sitting in Greenville right now. Makes me wonder what I've done wrong in my life to deserve the last month :cry: On the plus side, this will make the 100F summers much easier to appreciate. 100F summer is only fair if we don't freeze in the winter. I filing an offic...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

I guess we can all forgive you. This time. Next time hand them a tool and put them to work!

You could always recess them w/ a forstner bit if clearance ever became a problem.
That's what I was thinking... 1/16 fostner, some epoxy, press in pem to make it 100% flush AND stuck in there permanently.

But then I may be missing something in the description. I'm slow that way.
