Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

I really like the overall shape of the engine enclosure with the rounded corners and the sides paralleling the hull's sheer line. I can't tell from the picture but is the e-drive display panel mounted so that it slopes down towards the back? If not, you might consider doing so so that any water leak...

Re: SOBX Solo Flats Skiff SK14

Sort of launch today - the outboard had some issues at mid- to full throttle so a couple of short loops at about 1/2 speed then back to shore was it.

Re: 26' bateau bottom fishing

I think he is referring to the Panga 25 that is for sale down in FL - it is listed as 26' since it has a bow anchor pulpit that adds about a foot to the length.

Re: Sk14 Questions

2) Where is the glass tape required? The materials list does not list it in the plans or on the website- But the plans call for it in multiple steps throughout the instructions. See the instructions, page 5 of 8: Keel and bow inside; one layer fiberglass tape. Transom inside all around and between ...

Re: More SK14 questions

A single 2 gallon kit just barely does it - be sure the 2 part foam liquids are 85-90°F before you pour and do it on a warm day. The 2 part foam doesn't really expand to its full volume when filling the small volumes of the SK14.

Re: FS-18 "Bare Bones"

Were you able to use the same roller cover and pan throughout or did you need to periodically swap them out? I've been unsure when mixing new batches whether the remnants of the previous batch would accelerate the new one so I've alway used a fresh container and brush - maybe needlessly! This hasn't...

Re: Mixing MarinEpoxy by weight

I just mix 1 gallon resin with 1/2 gallon hardener, and work really fast. Who needs a gram scale or mixing pots, a 5 gallon bucket works great. :lol: I don't see how you can improve on this method, brilliant! You could aways use one of these - just ignore that warning label - simplifies the mixing!...
