Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Happy Endings aside. I am curious at 3.5 years into the build what your expectations of the build were compared to the reality of it. I know I was worried last fall that I would get mine finished too early for the sailing season this year. Hahahahahahahahaha :oops: That was not something I should ha...

Lead should never be power sanded.
Nor, should it ever be snorted! Don't ask me how I know this. Don't ask me how I know this. Don't ask me...Doh!

Re: AR15 Denver

Thanks Bogie and OrangeQuest. Most of the time between my inability to understand the plans and my lack of rigging knowledge I feel like a total hack, and that I should stick to putting Ikea furniture together! I gave the TotalBoat topside primer a week to cure and it was not changing at all. Once a...

Re: FL12 Build for Grandsons

I have gone crazy, I used BBC's 2 part foam in the aft compartment and in the bow space. I just did not want to do foam again under the cockpit deck.... This is what I did... 8) IMG_20190518_142451967.jpg . If anything it was fun buying all the noodles… I told everyone I had lots of Grandkids! Ever...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Great Sandy sure is a nice looking boat! The level of finish you are puttin on Skinnydip is impressive. I too have found one of the toughest things to do is to "stop touching it" when the finish is good enough for the next coat. The proverbial no matter how many times I cut it, it is still too short...

Re: AR15 Denver

Thanks Tony. I am really glad I put a neat coat of epoxy on before the primer. That will have saved me a ton of headache getting the primer removed. I should be able to sand "most" of it off, and only have to clean a few spots with xylene or whatever product I can find that will remove the primer. X...

Re: AR15 Denver

Sounds like another one part alkyd primer/enamel that doesn't play well with fresh epoxy. What you describe sounds exactly like what happened with the Interlux one part primer I used last year. I had to remove all of it, and start over with an epoxy primer as my base layer. Thanks Netpackrat. That ...

Re: AR15 Denver

Still no books or oar plans either! :-( The shrink wrap worked really well. I did not perforate it like I have seen others do. I had several reasons for not. 1. The fiberglass sock was very heavy maybe 12oz??? 2. I had not pre-applied any epoxy to the wood first 3. I only put enough on to wet out th...
