Re: Narfi's Zenith CH750 Super Duty

Definitely log the build here! Way back in the day I was an EAA member and somewhere in the house I have the plans for the Ragwing RW2 plans by Roger Mann. Classed as an ultralight. Life and family got in the way and never got around to building it. My dad was too young for WWII and had polio as a s...

Re: Fun video of building a strip canoe

I really did not think Andy had that big of a following. Total Boat in this particular video really surprised me because the young lady's uncle appears to be a seasoned builder, and Total Boat is a newer player in the market. Their epoxy seems to be fairly expensive and most experieinced builders t...

Re: Fun video of building a strip canoe

Seen this before and liked it on youtube. Cool as my daughter and I are doing some cedar canoes. A lot of people are using total boat products lately. Really has surprised me. I used TotalFair for a recent project and it was fine. But I would say at least 1/2 the projects I have seen in the last 6 ...

BTW, a CX25 was built with stern-drive, using a Cummins diesel. The boat runs well but the builder made some ugly modifications, that's why I don't post pictures.
Oh come on Jacques! Now you have me curious!! How ugly could it be?

Re: cleaning uncured epoxy from boat

I scraped and scraped and scraped. Used a 4 inch wide metal drywall tape tool. After that then lots of vinegar with scotchbright pads. Not sure how many gallons of vinegar and scotchbright pads. Then, once I got all the way down to good glass I used a sander with 24 grit to get the rest. Good to kn...
