Re: 1984 Larson Restore

Had some questions in my May 12th post. Would it be possible to have someone take a look and get back to me?

Re: 1984 Larson Restore

Sorry for my confusing question. By fasteners what I meant was what do I use to achieve clamping of the plywood to the fiberglass hull when gluing the transom into place? I see you have paint on your site. What is recommended? Do I need to cover with gel coat? Still concerned with matching color wit...

Re: 1984 Larson Restore

What type of fastener do you recommend?
Any particular pattern?
How do I get a color match with the existing hull?

Re: 1984 Larson Restore

Regarding the clamping the transom, you wrote -
A few more holes will not hurt.
What is recommended and how do I fix the holes? How do I get a color match to existing finish?

The plywood consisting of one ¾ inch and one ½ inch, both covering the full width of the transom. The two pieces will be laminated together with epoxy glue. Questions: The l...

Re: 1984 Larson Restore

What is best soap or other to use when washing away grinding dust, oil/grease, etc.?

Re: 1984 Larson Restore

Thanks for the information and advice so far. I have removed all of the old transom and began the grinding/sanding process. Here is what it looks like. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/89707/normal_IMG_3616.JPG http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/89707/normal_IMG_3617.JPG http://gal...

Re: 1984 Larson Restore

Are you referring to the inside surface of the transom fiberglass? - on the transom skin, put down a layer of glass Is th...

Re: 1984 Larson Restore

Is that some kind of shelf along the hull? Is that part rotten or solid? Yes the board is a shelf. I am sending more pictures via email. Along the sides of the hull is carpeted storage space. There is a carpeted piece of plywood that screws into the shelf as well as the panel you see hanging down. ...

Re: 1984 Larson Restore

Regarding the deck, I sent an email with a picture to illustrate. Along each hull side there is a board that is 1 inch thick, juts out from the hull side by 1 3/4 inches and is above the bottom of the decking (1/2 inch thick plywood) and top of the foam by 3 inches. That leaves 2 1/2 inches from the...
