Re: LM18 Madison Wi Building questions

I would tape thick plastic (plastic bag cut open) to the side of the pipe that will touch the epoxy. The plastic will release no problem. Make sure you tape it tightly so you don't get any wrinkles that will have to be sanded out after the fact.

Re: Trailer suggestions for FS17

joe2700,

Sorry, I should have realized you were in MA. I know that Float-On will ship their trailers but have no idea what the cost would be. I would imagine you would be looking in the $500+ range.

Re: LM18 Madison Wi Building questions

What if you build up fillets using the standard woodflour/epoxy mix. You could start by running smaller fillets (maybe 1/2" or 3/4") and building up to larger fillets while the previous fillet is still tacky. This would allow the fillets to get a good chemical bond. Once you have reached your desire...

Re: Trailer suggestions for FS17

joe2700, I'm not sure where you are located but we (Boat Builder Central) have started working with Float-On Trailers out of Vero Beach, FL. When I went to find a nice aluminum trailer for my FS18 I was having a lot trouble. The stock continental trailers were way too wide for the narrow beam of the...

Yes, I mixed in a cup and drew it up with a syringe. Made it very easy!

Poured the tinted resin into the Flats Stalker logo. I used some blue, white, and a good amount of silver. The silver will show when it hits the sunlight. Next is a some sanding and a layer of clear epoxy. Once this is done, I can go forward with installing the frames.

Re: FS18 Straight Sheer, Round Chine

Nice touch! But you got to keep going and finish this bad boy. Keep in mind that you are building a demo boat and any time you spend on it is justified as work towards the company’s marketing efforts. Browndog, I would love to spend all day, every day on the boat but customer jobs have to come firs...
