Re: Chasing Tail - FS17 LS

They don’t look too bad. I’d sand/grind them out, fill with some epoxy glue and put a small 12oz biax patch over it.

Re: Dust collection and sanding

I use a fan to blow the dust away from me in combo with my electric ROS hooked up to my shop vac (with a proper filter). Works well, but the shop vac tubing does get annoying sometimes. With this set up, gone are the days of total itchy body. Somewhere along the way a really smart person also told m...

Re: Wahoo 160 LTS

You’re certainly right! I was gone from the forum a while and felt like something was missing in my life as well. Gotta love having like minded people to share projects with. Since you’re going to beach it often and regularly; have you thought about adding a keel guard? Either a nice long chunk of a...

Re: Wahoo 160 LTS

Dang Bassmun!! That’s quite the intro back :). I’m not surprised though. Your PH16 was one of the coolest,most custom builds I’ve watched. This should be fun!

Re: FS-18 - "Bare Bones"

Also, I just double checked the website. It says defintiely clean with boat soap and water to remove oils prior to recoating. Also said don’t apply it in under 50F with over 75% humidity. Just an FYI. Good luck!

Re: FS-18 - "Bare Bones"

No problem with adherence on repeat coats (at least on my one boat). I did the same thing 2-3 years after the original coat of Kiwi. It was too rough for my kids to walk bare footed, so I cleaned it really well with soap and water, then used some denatured alcohol over the area (final clean and so i...

Re: wegcagle GV15

Thanks ks! It’ll most likely be the LB26 or a DE25, but open concept. Kind of like an express DE. I doubt I’ll be able to start for a few years though. I’ve almost paid off every dime I owe the gov’t for my college and medical school student loans, and am on a ramen noodle diet until we get that mon...

Re: 1969 Boston Whaler restoration - paint, though

I bought some stuff for my GV15 through specialtymarine.com, and seem to remember that they have an entire section for Whalers. No clue about pricing though.
