Re: Sk 14 SSI Ga

I'm 99.9999% done. I just need to finish some wiring and mount the rear light. I tested it out today with the 9.8hp in the wind and chop and I was able to run a consistent 18.6mph. I thought I might be able to go faster, but I guess my beefing it up has something to do with it (extra foam and framin...

Re: Sk 14 SSI Ga

Edd, You gotta be liking the warmer weather these last few days. It sure has been a cold winter on the Georgia Coast. Went sheephead fishing Saturday and nothing biting inshore. Decent numbers being caught at the nearshore reefs with good amounts of Black Sea bass too. Thanks for the report. My fis...

Re: Sk 14 SSI Ga

Ok thanks everybody for the advice. I made an enclosure with plastic drop cloth and pvc ( I will use the pvc for making a blind so it won't be wasted) . Yesterday I was able to keep it 60+ with a heater inside, but today it's too windy. I actually tried a earlier this week, but the wind was too much...

Re: Sk 14 SSI Ga

Thanks Jeff I'll do that. I've got an epoxy question. I did the glassing on the bottom yesterday. It's still a little tacky. Is it ok to go ahead and put the grafite epoxy mix on the bottom? Or should I wait until it cures and light sand? I know it's recommended working wet on wet, but didn't know i...

Re: Sk 14 SSI Ga

Do any of you guys who have set up a trailer for the sk14 recall how far apart you spaced the bunks? I got mine set at 2ft in the rear and about 2ft 6in in the front. I also raised the front 2 1/2 in. I plan on adding something else to support the bow. The weather has slowed my progress a little.
