Re: Rub rail

I used Taco on my XF20 and Tessilmare r30 on the FS18. The Tessilmare was WAY easier to install which kinda tells you just how awful Taco is. :wink: The only suggestion I have for the Tessilmare folks would be to flat pack the rubrail base in strips. Coiling the stuff up in a roll is not one of the...

Re: LM18 Madison Wi Building questions

Cbuf, When we build out our Epoxy kits we do so with the experienced builder in mind. This way an experienced builder is not left with extra epoxy. Novice builders have a tendency to use too much epoxy when wetting out their fiberglass. Keep in mind also, the plans for the LM18 don't call for the 12...

Re: Bob's FS18

Bob, Good start! No worries about the puzzle joint panels. One cured just sand them down smooth. As long as the you have the gap between the puzzle joints filled and there are not air pockets or gaps you are fine. Keep in mind, the cleaner you work now the smoother and less fairing you will do later...

Re: Bob's FS18

Bob, Welcome to the Forum! I'm confident you will get a lot of feedback as you progress thru your build, especially if you post pictures. Like Fuzz said, I would add some bracing for the legs of the strongback. I would also encourage you to add some heavy duty casters (with the ability to lock). Cas...
