Re: how long to wait before primer?

You want to make sure the epoxy and fairing compound has fully cured and is done with any "off-gassing". I like to wait 5 days to be sure.

Re: 2020 Southeastern Boat Builders Meet

We have a 10'x10' pop up as well that I will bring. I will place a call to River Palms to see if we can use the pavilion in the likely case of rain. (otherwise, bring your foul weather gear!!)

Re: SK14 in TX

AggieGirl, Fuzz is absolutely right! Probably not what you want to hear but you need to get spacing in between EVERY panel. You don't want any wood touching wood, you want a small gap so the fillet can do its job. I would start over, cut the zip ties, and add some spacers. I think you will see the g...

Re: SK14 in TX

AggieGirl, Looks pretty good so far! Like Fuzz said, you need to add some spacers between your panels. There should be spacing in between every seam. This allows the fillet to do its job and join the seams. You may have read in the plans or on the Forum that you need to avoid "Hard spots". This is w...

Re: SK14 in TX

AggieGirl, Looks good so far! Nice progress!! Don't worry too much about the transom issue. If you want, you can fix it now before you hang the transom. Just mix up a little woodflour and epoxy, fill those spots and sand them level. Going forward, remember, the cleaner you work the less sanding/fair...

Re: LM18 For Sale

Colemanfire,

I can't believe you are selling the LM! Does $10K include the trailer also?
With or without the trailer, $10K is a great price for that boat. As we all know, that is a well built boat!

What are you thinking of building next?

Re: aluminum trailer for LM18

We have been working with Float-On Trailers out of Vero Beach. They have made us (Boat Builder Central) a distributor. I put my FS18 on one and have sold a few others for customers. One was for another FS18 and the other was for another 14' design. They are great trailers, built well, and customized...

Gino here, Heading to the Meet from Texas and would love to try fishing for Tarpon, something I have not fished for down here in South Texas. If anybody is interested in joining up, I will be arriving Wednesday to try and fish on Thursday. If I have to pay a guide, might as well split it with someo...
