Re: Wouter's PH18 Namibia

Been a while since my last visit and Wouter you sure kept up your quality Bud. Impressive work you done! Just one thing, glad to see you went the "reed switch" route on your hatch lights and not the mechanical route that I followed, however, knowing from previous experiences, these kinds of electron...

Re: PH18 Build in North Dallas

Also looking very good Casey. Are you going to fill the void around the fitting with thickened epoxy and sand that level with the livewell floor? I've been wondering about finishing off such an installation with specific reference to the hole in the fitting and layer of glass in the live-well. Thoug...

Re: LGF's 18' Phantom Build in South Africa

Ok, time to do an update. I've been fishing of mates rigs for the better part of 7 years now and decided to build the PH18.

Re: PH18 Build in North Dallas

Very Well Thought-out there Casey, currently sitting with an issue where the drain was attached like a through-hull fitting and needless to say, not all the water drains out.

Re: Wouter's PH18 Namibia

VERY VERY Nice, don't think you'd ever need to worry about the trailer ever destroying your labour of Love that'll be resting on top of it !

Re: Wouter's PH18 Namibia

:lol: yeah sorry I had to ask, just one of my things, anyhow, the trailer looks solid Bud! Could you perhaps take a closer pic of the section just behind the coupler, I am curious to see your towing bar/trailer frame connection (how they are attach to each other)

Re: Wouter's PH18 Namibia

Sorry for being so inquisitive but I cannot help noticing things even if it's subtle, was wondering about the beige coloured outline on the floor beneath the main frame of the trailer??????

Re: Wouter's PH18 Namibia

Hmmmm looking good. That's my starting point. I reckoned building the trailer first is the best option for my limited space issue and the realistic long time it takes to build the boat. So, I plan to use the trailer as the "strongback" and upon 1st flip, to then place the resting supports onto the h...
