Re: HC14 Kit Contents & Questions

AHW, I will have to confirm with our CNC cut files but I am almost positive we do not cut the rubrails for the HC14. I believe we do cut the Breast Hooks but would need to confirm to be certain. The CNC kit for the HC14 does come with Okoume BS1088. You can order an extra sheet of Okoume 6mm and add...

Re: epoxy...primer....paint....help!

Laguna20, The System Three Yacht Primer (to my knowledge and I have met with the owners of System Three) has never been a true "high build" primer. In order to be a "high build" primer there will be high build solids in the part B or catalyst (from my experience). IMHO, if you are using the S3 Quick...

Re: Port A XF 20

Dr. Pete, From my knowledge, once you graphite the bottom you are best to leave it the way it is. You can do several coats of epoxy/graphite to get the desired finish you are looking for but I don't believe paint will adhere very well to the graphite bottom. As far as the sides are concerned, any po...

Re: Erik and Randy CX19 Hull issues

Randy/Erik, Not sure if you all have seen this Forum Thread but this is a customer building the CX19 in Western Australia. This is not a CNC kit. Really nice build!! Definitely worth a look.

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. The idea is that the Epoxy is going to shoulder the load in a "Foam Core" panel whereas the Marine Plywood (which is a much stro...

Re: Erik and Randy CX19 Hull issues

Erik,

You do not need to post cure Silver Tip Epoxy. I would simply wait 72 hours after fiberglass work to apply any primer or paint.

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. You may have to create a temporary backing when you apply EZ-Fillet to the bow but once the filleting is ...
