Re: FS14- Bayou City Boat

I like the samson post too. I don't know if it should be as far aft as you first had it but I think it looked fine. I'd keep it much further back than this new photo, IMO it looks odd right at the bow. Wherever you put it I'd have the chocks(fairleads) in front of it, I don't think having the line c...

Re: Question for sail boat guys!

Sorry Joe2700 was not saying you were dense and you are on the right track. I like the one you posted and it looks like it will do the trick. I don't use Amazon or eBay when searching but my fishing buddy has an account and will have him order the one you posted. Thank you very much! OQ Don't worry...

Re: Question for sail boat guys!

Oh ok, so you just need a narrower open fairlead? Something like this might do the trick. If the fairlead is being measured end to end even a 4" is pretty small when you look at the actual opening for the line at 3/4". I have 2 of these on the bow of my boat. If I'm still being dense just ignore me....

Re: Question for sail boat guys!

There are many cam cleat designs with fairleads built in that are quite common like these: https://www.westmarine.com/buy/harken--365-carbo-cam-on-plate-with-bullseye--244285?recordNum=26 https://www.westmarine.com/buy/harken--micro-carbo-cam-matic-kit-wire-fairlead--10421931?recordNum=18 https://ww...

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

This weekend I did some fun stuff, mocking up the console. I'm sure I'll be back to some type of sanding next time. I had designed this console in my notebook after taking some key measurements off a 17' Montauk I used to drive for work and found comfortable. The rest I made up. I made a small 2x4 f...

It's a bit harder with this second tub. The green is much more runny than last.
But it still works.
My newest batch of ez fillet also has a much more liquid green and a much more red ... red. It worked fine but they seemed to have changed something.

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

Take two at cutting the sole. With the original too small sole in the boat I took measurements from the centerline to the hull. I also recorded the distance from the edge of the original sole to the hull as a second set of measurements to cross check. It was kind of fun to get back to lofting for a ...

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

Maybe I missed something.... Why do you need to sand or paint below the sole? It will be covered and sealed off right? I'll be using epoxy primer and epoxy based bilge paint(TotalBilge) below the sole and inside all storage areas. Compartments under the sole will be limbered together fore and aft w...

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

I'll say again that because of all the corners doing stuff below the frames takes forever. I did finally get all the frames other than A glassed in, but I'm dreading even the rough sanding I'll need to do below the sole before paint. uRsKFZM I have the template for the bow area in. VWlRMh4 I'm bring...

Re: FS17 For Sale

It has an 11/17 splashed Suzuki 60hp motor with less than 20hrs Great build and someone is getting a hell of a deal. If you don't mind me hijacking a little, that is the exact motor I'm planning for my FS17. How did you like it as a motor and as a fit for the FS17? Do you think it would have been o...
