Re: PH18 w/tunnel

Good to hear from you Mike. No boat building at all. Just got finished rebuilding the front end of my Tahoe, new tires and new radiator. If I get any free time I'll get back to it. Need to do a little housekeeping to the shop, then fair and sand a little more. Glad to hear your building again!!

Re: Mikem59 FS18 Build

The lease is just north of Lometa, Tx, which in turn is north of Lampasas. I've been out to the lease 3 times, beautiful out there. Although my passion is fishing, I can see right now, I'm going to enjoy this deer lease. As a kid we hunted at my great uncle's ranch out of Lometa. The Hood Ranch. An...

Re: willg's PH18

Looks good Will. When you do the 50" cloth, it won't go all the way up the sides. You might want to have cloth cut and ready if you plan on covering it completely and wet on wet. Or not. Casey and I have reverse chines on ours. he built his by laminating ply. I built mine by dam and fill. Used about...

Re: PH18 w/tunnel

Very little progress to date. I've got the console glued in and that's been about it. With this second job, i don't have the time of day it seems. i have cut and epoxied pieces ready to glue inside the console. In the mean time I hope to fair the CC and get a final layer of fairing on the sides soon.

Re: PH 18 hull panels: to fair or not to fair?

I think I know what your getting at Will. What I did was after I planed and glassed spices, I let it harden, then used thickened epoxy (wood flour) and filled any little dips or voids using a blade, spreader or whatever. This way the cloth when laid up will not have any areas where air bubbles could...
