Re: Erik and Randy CX19 Hull issues

Piperdown, You (and Dan) are correct. A lamination done with "Foam Core" should be "post-cured". However, this should only apply to "Foam Core" panels that are Structural.

Re: Erik and Randy's CX19 Build at Farley Boat Works

Erik and Randy, Here are the latest pictures you sent me. Everything looks good! The hull came together nicely, I don't see any issues. You should not have any issue filling that gap in the bow.

Re: LM 18 First Time Build

John, You don't necessarily need to work your way from top to bottom. You need to make sure that you do the following: Make sure that the bottom piece does not get pulled up too far to where you are left with a big gap at the end. Make sure the gaps are even throughout each strip. Make sure you hav...

Re: C17 here we come ready or not

Randy,

I had Crystal, our CNC computer programmer, take a look at the CNC files and we actually do give the builder the option of cutting the bench seats or not. Give me a call to discuss further.

Thanks,
Reid
