Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

Must be nice!?

I started sanding all my fillets, and with the router round over bit, made the profile I want on a 2"X2"x11" board. Glued 80 grit sandpaper on it and it makes a quick constant profile.

Re: Confused about Primer/Paint/Topcoat

Here is the way I understand the primer/top coat thing. The primer is to help the top coat bond to the epoxy and the primer also makes the top coat stronger/harder. You could add top coat over the epoxy but it would not last very long and not be very hard. The primer needs to be sanded between coats...

I have always heard it is the piglets that make the best pork. Where there is one that big should be more.

Re: Port A XF 20

Once you find the right combination of prop for your day to day boating adventures you can then get a back up for days you need to get more pulling power. Let's say it is just you and another person most the time but then you plan an outing with 4 people on board or you decide that you want to pull ...

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

I was thinking more the psychical linkage. Where you would need to connect/disconnect in 3 places. Then keep it aligned so it is the same every time. I could see fly by wire would be a bonus. Unplug/plug in the actuators for each motor and you are set. Use fly by wire on all 3 systems, steering, thr...

Re: Port A XF 20

Wow! She looks even better with the motor on her! As far as the rpms and speed. The tunnel will keep the speed a little slower because it wants to suck the boat down as speed increases but it also means you can raise the motor higher because the motor is more in the wake. AA has a XF20 (Red) I think...

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

She is looking good!!! So, if you was to meet up with Klingons or other unlikeables, getting into a fire fight and take on heavy damage, can everything separate and travel (at less than cruise speed) on their own power? :roll: :D The hull looks like a boat, big boat by itself and the cabin too. Is t...
