Re: Cheap Canoe Kit

Because I'd rather learn to build and fiberglass on a two plywood canoe than one I'm going to hang a 40hp motor on.

I mean, that's what they recommend doing anyway, right?

Re: Cheap Canoe Kit

I plan on ordering everything from here. It's just they don't carry what the plans specify. Besides, I'm not really sure if it's supposed to be woven or biaxe. Honestly, I just need to know what to get instead :) Alternatively if they want to put together an epoxy fiberglass kit I'll just buy that t...

Re: Cheap Canoe Kit

Actually, I don't really need a kit made up, if you could just tell me what type of fiberglass I need for it, I can order it all. I'm just not sure what fiberglass type to get. It calls for: Fiberglass Tape at 4" wide, 9oz, 50 yards. Is that woven or biaxle? Woven is the only one sold in 9oz, but my...

Re: Cheap Canoe Kit

It is from an old bookmark that I had saved. It is here: http://bateau2.com/free/ccanoeUS.PDF What I referenced is on page 18. I am going to build it. I am trying to find a local source for BS1088 Okoume. I am new enough that I had to google how to pronounce that so I could tell them what I needed :...

Cheap Canoe Kit

In the free canoe plans, it mentions that you sell a kit that "contains all of the epoxy and fiberglass needed to build the boat, not the plywood. The kit comes with a 55 page book describing step by step how to use epoxy and fiberglass. The kit includes the dispensing pumps, gloves, and mixing cups...

Re: LM18 in Perry, GA

Since last post we've changed the fuel filters on the truck, went to the braves game Sunday, and worked like crazy on the boat. I cleaned done overhanging glass. I glassed the tops of the hatches and faired, long board sanded the deck, glassed and installed and faired the portion of the deck above ...

C17 Study Plans Page 3 - Typo

So, I already have the plans for it but was looking at the study plans for the C17 on page 3. https://boatbuildercentral.com/wp/StudyPlans/C17_STUDY.pdf On the study plans it says 34.5 gallons of epoxy. Now, I don't doubt I'll probably use that much, but it seems a bit high. I am fairly certain that...

Re: A Cracker Built GF18- Splashed 2-14-15

This cop pulls over an old lady for going 25 in a 55. He says, "Ma'am, can I see your drivers license and registr..." he stops mid sentence as he notices a rather large hand gun on her passenger seat. "Is that loaded?" She replies, "Why, yes it is, I have my permit, would you like to see it too?" He...
