Re: GF16 Kansas build

Doing some surgery on the Jeep today. Got to a certain point and had to stop and order a bracket. So, switched over to the boat for a while :D Finished up sharpening the chines and have it a good sanding on the port side. Cleaned it up by vacuuming and then wiping down with acetone. Mixed up 12oz of...

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

FG, I'm sure you've already considered it but what are the cons of the GV10, since Evan designed it for his sailboat? Seems light enough for your purposes and also seems to have enough capacity? While I prefer to keep to JM, Evan or Richards designs on here, is a nesting dinghy like these feasible? ...

Looks like contact dermatitis. They do make nitrile gloves with an extra long cuff. We use them in our labs.

Re: GF16 Kansas build

If it were me I would use something a little tougher than fairing compound to fill low spots on the bottom. That sounds like a small enough area it might not make much difference though. Over estimated the gap. Just went out and measured it and it's looks like 2mm. Easier to read in mm than getting...

Re: GF16 Kansas build

I think I would do it like Seaslug did. He seems to have a bunch of slick tricks :wink: If it makes you feel any better I used some poly fairing compound on the last boat. I have never had any problems with epoxy but I ended up with 21 feet of poly crap I had to remove. Chisel, grinder and cussing ...

Re: --------------How to get help on your boat project !!------

They work full time. The only time they may be delayed is when they are off at a boat show. Otherwise Jeff and Reid respond extremely fast. And, as others have said, their customer service is top notch!

Re: Coach's SC-16 in MA

Check your lamination schedule first. I used 2 big sheets since I went all the way to the shear on both sides. Middle overlapped by about 10 inches. Ran it from the front all the way back over and down the rear transom. Cut a few reliefs at the corners and folded over. Also depends on the width of y...
