Re: Sintes 21 Rebuild

David i use a plastic bag
with a straw taped into the corner of the bag. That way thickened epoxy material comes out better.
Stick it into the back of the hole and slowly back out as you squeeze, have a piece of tape ready to
put on until hard. Worked well for me.

Re: FS13 'Lil Stream

Try clamping your rub rails on and see if it will pull back into shape. Maybe Dimensional lumber rails as they
would be stiffer.

Re: Best source for tinned marine wire

I bought all my wire Genuine and had them make up all my main batteries connections . They have a good chart for figuring voltage drop and wire size.
