Re: And now for something different

Capt. UB,

Give me a call at our office when you have some fee time. I want to see what went wrong and make sure that corrections are made for the future.

Thanks,

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

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Thanks for stopping by Bogie! We also like to put faces to our customers. Sorry we couldn't show you any boats but I guess that will give you an excuse to come visit us when we get into the new shop!
Good luck on the build, looking forward to seeing it!

Re: Console construction, openings, hatches, etc.

That is strange.
In all fairness to Bobmaes, let's try and give him some advise on his questions. We can always start another thread and try and figure out the photo issues.
If anyone has any good info for Bobmaes, please reply. I know he is looking for some guidance.

Thanks,
Reid

Bob,

Welcome to the Forum! As you will see I have moved your post to Cracker Larry's Corner (we always take Fuzz's advise :wink: ). Hopefully you will get some additional feedback.

Re: LM18 "Cast & Blast"

Brian, You really did an awesome job on the LM18!!! Really clean looking! Can't wait to see it with the platform installed. For you to get 27mph out of her with a full fuel tank, fishing gear, and a 25 HP/180 lb. motor shows what a clean job you did with the hull and fairing. Also shows what a nice ...

I would hate to ...

Re: Maintaining panel gap

Rich, The main goal is to avoid any wood touching wood (these are called "hard spots"). You want to leave a gap between all panels (1/8" give or take) wide enough for the epoxy glue to get in and make a good bond. The nails provide a guide to keep a consistent gap but they are not necessary in every...
