Re: PH18 w/tunnel

Getting closer. More hatch covers installed. A couple more to do. Then a bead of silicon. Once I fit the trailer it's ready to register. There is so much stuff still all over the boat from rigging that I'm not ready for pics just yet but I'll post some soon. Working for the POC deadline. D.

Re: PH18 w/tunnel

Powerhead painted and so is the rest of the midsection and lower unit. Mid section is bolted to jackplate and hydraulic steering cylinder is on too. Front hatches...

Re: 2014 Texas Builder's Meet July 25-27 @ POC

Haven't been online in forever. I was thinking the meet was in June. Now feels like I'm getting bonus time to finish the boat. Rigging now. Modifying the trailer and putting an engine together. I'll have to update my thread soon. Don

Re: PH18 w/tunnel

What brand/color hatches are you going to use? Will I bought a gallon. I'll probably have half of it left after 3 coats.....

Re: PH18 w/tunnel

I'm sure it's in the air. Not sure what to do about it. I couldn't find any info on sanding between coats but I'm guessing 320. I need to sand where the roller shed in a few areas.
