Re: OD18 - NH

Panel number three down. This one was difficult to fit around the tubes with the minimum of space as the tubes all come out at an angle to relieve stress on the steering and cable looms that will be running through them. https://forums.bateau2.com/app.php/gallery/image/6184/medium Test fit panel num...

Re: OD18 - NH

The second panel went down without incident. It was the easiest as there were no chase tubes coming through it. https://forums.bateau2.com/app.php/gallery/image/6177/medium Like most others I used the offcuts of foam to fill in the bays behind where I was working. Waist not, want not as they say. ht...

Re: OD18 - NH

So, first of all a big apology to all my forum friends for not posting in ages. I didn't realize exactly how long until I opened this page up this morning and realized that my new job, that was supposed to give me time to do stuff like this wasn't working out exactly as I had expected. Strange that ...

Re: Crabby Patti2 C17

Looks really good to me. Just cut off the overflow, seal with resin and repeat in the next bay. Good to save the offcuts to be sealed into the next bay to save on waste. I found this to be one of the most fun parts of the build.

Re: Jeffs FS14 LS

Well, I hate to comment on how much I like your workmanship on the drift boat with all this talk of aging four legged workshop supervisors. I have a 14+ helper as well so totally get what you’re both talking about.

Re: Eric's C21

Nice idea with the foam, took ages to go around the double curvature parts in wood.

Re: SK14 expanding foam question

You’re probably finished by now but I pored mine in low temperatures with the shop heated and found that I didn’t get the expansion I was expecting. I used my propane space heater like a huge heat gun and warmed the hull to around 85 deg to avoid a cooler surface than air temperature and then kept t...
