Re: FS17 in Steinhatchee

Looking good. Did you say how wide you made your gunnals? Thinking about sequence of assembly, I had been thinking I would put the tops on first then the sides, what was your thought process doing sides first then top, or is it a case of 6 of one and half dozen of the other? Just want to make sure I...

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

Removed all the weights and sanded off my epoxy handprints and drips around the edges. Then filled in a fillet around the entire parimater and filled in the couple of areas between panels not filled when I first glued it down.

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

Minecraft, the modern legos. I dont understand it, but it really gets landons creative mind working. My wife plays with him some and has made some really impressive structures and models.

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

I coated all the supports with epoxy. Coated the undersides and edges of all the floor panels. Then layed out thickened epoxy on all the supports and laid the panels down and weighted them in place. 20180818_095347.jpg Got a farting sound from a corner of each bay when walking around on it.

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

Did a couple hours of prep work, nothing really picture worthy though. Finished trimming the last couple high spots on the foam. Sanded down the floor supports one last time. Blew out all the sawdust. The plywood got some dirty snow blew under the tent edge last winter so the corners are kind of dir...

Re: HC16 Build Questions

The plans for my HC14 called for 6oz tape, I assume the same is specified for the HC16? If your glass is biaxeal and not woven and at least 6oz (I don't think you would want to go heavier than that) then it should cover the requirements of the plans. If you are using a glass lighter than 6oz, then I...

Glad you dressed up for their visit!

Co-workers this morning told me that we are getting the left overs from a Chinese typhoon.

Transom corner is looking good too!
