Re: FS18 on the double!

Still slowly creeping towards the finish line - I've now done every single bit of painting, including under the gunnels and the touch up areas inside the compartments. The lids have got kiwi'd and look much better than the other bits of white kiwi because I put a layer of undercoat over the whole th...

Re: FS18 on the double!

Cheers Jeff & Jeff :) Jeff sorry to only just catch this, your idea to pre-gutter and then mitre the joints is genius!! Rounding off the inside corners might be fiddly, definitely worth adding some putty to beef up the inside where you are about to whittle the edges off - the whole thing would have ...

Re: FS18 on the double!

Nice one Ilker, thanks buddy :D Not much to update as I've had to do a bit more actual work and have had some sickbugs kicking around the house which makes for a lot more laundry! :help: I have been messing around with some more rod holder layouts, for trolling for bass (the original bass, same as y...
