Re: Coach's SC-16 in MA

MA Enviro Police are scheduled for tomorrow to inspect the boat so hopefully I will get my HIN tomorrow and get started on registration! I got my title and HIN in the mail after mailing in the application so I must have done it well enough if you have any questions when you go to submit that. With ...

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

I've been working on my hatches putting a thick backinh board on all of them inside the frame to keep them from warping. Also drilling the holes for the latches. Gdb0L77 Now that I have them on a real hatch I really like the friction hinges. Keeping the anchor hatch open is a great example. NJkRECd ...

Re: DE 29 July 2020 Pat4 The Netherlands

A boat shop local to me has been making a line of boats with enclosed outboards that seem to be doing pretty well. I was skeptical at first but it does get you a certain look while maintaining outboard simplicity. I asked and the motor just pushes the cover up a little when it's tilted all the way u...

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

Great work. I love the raised sheer on the FS17. You are really doing a nice job. If you need any help with selecting a prop when the time comes, I'm here. Tom Thanks Tom, once I weight the boat I'll reach out. The place I bought the motor should select a prop to try out but it will be good to have...

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

Found one more spot of poor adhesion on the transom so I just sanded the entire thing down to re-fair. Better than wondering if I got it all.

Took a fun break and installed the hydraulic steering cylinder on the motor. Systems stuff is a nice change of pace.

Re: Roman´s OB15 (First Time Builder)

Do you mean 2 or 3 cm long between A and B? That is nothing, I am relieved. :D Do what I suggested: scrape some of that foam off there and pour liquid epoxy putty in the gap. You can also live with it. It is a very small weakness. I was afraid that you had up to 1 meter of stringer lifted up, that ...

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

I've been fairing the side decks and also rounded and sanded the rub rail. A few days of fairing all the final areas of the hull are in my future. Couldn't help but have a sneak peak at how the rub rail will look varnished after sanding, by wetting it with some alcohol. I think it will look pretty s...

Re: FS14LS Pre-Planning

Agree with many of the previous replies. Most people seem to need a lot more epoxy that the building materials state. A little because of heavy resin usage, but I think mostly because most people add features over the simple version in the plans. You don't pay all that much more buying in batches th...

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

The boat looks great. I’m just up the road from you in NH and our DMV offices are open so just assumed yours would be as well. Shows how things can change with that state line. I think I’ve only driven to Logan twice since this all started so am obviously out of touch with MA. Our RMV is open(i thi...

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

Boat is looking great! You are bookin' right along. I called to get inspected and sent an email. Girl said an officer will get back to me. Still waiting for inspection date. It's been a little over a week so hopefully I will hear back this week from MA Enviro police to get my HIN. I filled out thei...
