Frames and stringers installation?

Do I use spacers when tabbing the stringers, frames and bulkheads to the interior of the hull? I’m almost positive the answer is yes but did not find an easy answer in the how to’s. I’ll be flipping in next couple of weeks.

Thanks

Re: FS19 (-5%) in GA

Thanks fellas.

Eric- surprised there’s not more an bigger deer up there. These are much bigger than whitetails. This one weighed 275. 100 more than my largest.

Piperdown- this was north of I-25 between Casper and Douglas. Beautiful country.

Re: FS19 (-5%) in GA

Fall boat building break. A little more polishing and she’ll be ready to flip. May be mid November due to these kind of pursuits. My first Muley. Let me know if distasteful for this forum. A long way from Georgia.

Re: FS19 (-5%) in GA

After a once over with polishing compound I’ll be ready to break this puppy away from the molds and flip. Only thing that’s gonna hold me back this are appointments this month with mule deer in Wyoming and whitetails in Georgia. I’m extremely pleased with how the EMC Quantum 99 topcoat turned out. S...

Re: Width of strongback

Welcome to the forum Capfish 1. I’m building an FS19. Somewhere my plan suggests strongback to be same width as stringers.

Re: repainting on my od 18

Polishing EMC Quantum

Literature says imperfections/bugs can be polished out of of this paint after 48 hrs but does not detail how to polish. I expect using a orbital polisher/buffer and some type of compound. Any advice will be appreciated.

Overall I’m pretty impressed with this paint.

Re: FS19 (-5%) in GA

Salty, I will have a couple small areas I need to touch up where second coat was too thin. Can I just run the roller over them with a thin coat the next time I’m painting another section? This stuff is expensive but that quart of topcoat plus activator and reducer will do 2 coats plus on the entire ...
