Re: Bass Boat

Just throwing this out there as every build it different, but you’re gonna spend WAY more than those numbers to build just the hulls. You’re not thinking of the sandpaper, tools, extra wood framing, paint, foam, electronics, electrical, plumbing, gas tank, fairing material, trailer, engine, lighting...

Re: Knoxville Jay’s C17 Build

Jay, not sure about Saran Wrap, but I made a huge mess once by trying to cover something with plastic painters drop cloth. The epoxy basically melted the thin plastic as is kicked. It’s way more exothermic than I gave it credit for :help: . I’d stick to things that can handle the heat like (packing ...

Re: Knoxville Jay’s C17 Build

Good plan Jay. I didn’t use temporary frames on my GV15 build and regretting it after flipping and reinstalling. I made a few changes that required having to fiberglass a couple of sections back to the frame, so doubled my work. Next boat I’ll definitely use temporary frames. I’d also recommend putt...

Re: Eric's C21

You’re doing an amazing job so far Eric. I’ve enjoyed catching up on this thread. I’m really impressed with both your fiberglass skills as well as the fact that you don’t appear to have ANY bow droop on her! Alot of previous builders of C19/21s suffered from bow droop during the stitching process. F...

Re: Preparing for GT27 build - foam questions

Hey wkisting, I’m in Augusta as well! I’d certainly wait for Jacques to weigh in, but I was thinking exactly what you are proposing in your last post. I’d consider using ply for the superstructure with closed cell foam for the insulation. Especially since the hull is ply anyways. I’d still add the h...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Well said Wayne! This is an amazing community, and I have loved being a part of it for many years. CL's passing hit me pretty hard as well, and I also reclused into the background. Seems now's a great time to remedy that :D Your boat build is one of the most inventive I've seen GB. I wish I had any ...

Re: wegcagle GV15

Thanks for the complement! It’s certainly more of a 20 +foot finish in person :D I used S3 primer, and Interlux Perfection for the top coat. Then for the flooring I used Kiwigrip. That stuff is the best investment I’ve made in the boat! After a few years she still runs flawlessly (except the dang ra...

Re: Super Light SC16

Yeah you can! Just buy a bottle filler. You carb it up in the keg, fill and cap bottles. My Bottles are labeled up too: Better Dad Brew (because beer makes me a better dad) :lol:
