Re: PG 25, July 2017, PangaRon

YES! :D 8) So stoked for you Ron! She's perfect! I'm sure it can handle Cali waves. Absolutely. I've had my 22 in some pretty wild conditions out here in the middle of the pacific and always felt safe and confident. The panga design was very well done by Jacques :!: When it gets really snotty, like ...

Re: Build Progress - Panga 25

1. You can tool the epoxy that oozes through now, or grind it smooth after the flip. I put packing tape under the seams to hold the epoxy in and grinded and sanded them flush when I flipped.
2. After all the epoxy in the seams cures you will round the edges over with a router or sanding block.

Re: Sashimi-panga22-Kauai

Well, I started looking for a T-top around 4-5 months ago, and today picked up the finished product at the docks... http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/19475/photo_28129.JPG The shade area is a little over 7' long and around 5' wide. Plenty of shade. I found a nice seafoam green canvas Sunbre...

Re: Panga 25 - Bottom Panels ?'s

Here you go.. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/19475/normal_normal_Panga252022.jpg Ignore the top panel in the picture. The bottom panel shows the kerf lines. You probably won't need that many slits, but the more slits you have the smoother the curve. Also more to fill after :wink: Cut the...

Re: Build Progress - Panga 25

You need to stitch the sides and bottom all at the same time. I had to kerf my bottom panels to get them to cooperate. There's a drawing Jacques did somewhere that shows where the straight lines are in the bow, and I kerfed as close to those as I could. I kerfed about half way through the panel and ...

Re: PG25 Panga Build

Also, did you epoxy seal and/or glass in the underside of the sole panels?
No glass on the bottom of the sole, but EVERYTHING gets coated with 2 coats of epoxy. Especially under the sole and areas you wont ever see again.

Re: PG25 Panga Build

Looks good, congrats on another milestone. I did the same with my sole- removed the screws and filled the holes with epoxy prior to taping. One thing I would definitely suggest is to wrap EVERYTHING in glass. The floor, edges of frames, everything. Even it's just 4 oz. I've been really hard on mine ...
