Re: GV10 Stop and Start Project

someone on here, I think they might have been overseas, used plastic balls like you'd use in a ball pit. He filled the lower compartments with them instead of poured foam.

Re: MDF dust as filler?

I wouldn't use it either. I wouldn't trust the glue and wax they use in the manufacturing process mixed with epoxy to create a structural joint.

Re: Barrier coats

https://www.westsystem.com/instruction- ... s/fairing/ Read # 7 Yep, I see it. The only reason I myself would use a couple of final layers of neat epoxy as last coats before a topcoat would be when leaving the wood clear with no filler at all. If you are going to use anything opaque as a filler, I ...

Re: Barrier coats

What Joe2700 and piperdown said. But I'd like to know if "piperdown" references bagpipers leading a suicidal battle charge, or maybe a steamfitter after a boiler blows up?

Re: Barrier coats

Okay, so sort of a poll type question... The West Systems manual suggests microballoons are porous..and they suggest as many as 6 coats of epoxy after final fairing. They also recommend a final light layer of glass after final fairing (???). Anyhow, obviously I am using epoxy primer and plan to use...

Re: 2019 Southeastern Boat Builders Meet

If I had been paying attention I would have set my flight to go out on Sunday instead of this Friday. As is, my better 2/3 has plans made since I'm home this weekend. Would have been nice meeting all of you that plan on being there.

Re: Eric's C21

First try at baguettes. Not bad, nice chewy inside, outside could have been a bit more crisp. Next time I'll only spritz once. I think the second shot was to much as the bottom crisped nicely.

Re: Eric's C21

Looks fantastic! Little bit of that and some good hearty soup, mmm, mmm :D

I don't eat a lot of bread in the warmer months. Once it starts getting cool though, I start making more soups, stews and other semi liquid meals. They absolutely go best with some handcrafted bread.
