Re: Sation A of CX 25

Camber can also be done on the panel, prior to cutting by using a batten. I like a batten 18-20mm square.

You can hold the two fixed ends bu drrilling and placing some hardened nails to hold the batten true. Then move the batten to the offset and draw.

Post some pictures of the build.

Re: 91 chawk 222 rebuild

I like the idea of that foam, the 2 inner stringer are 1.5 thick(double 3/4" ply ) the two outers are single 3/4, to this point I've only removed the floor over the tank and about 4 ft forward of stern. I wanted to try to keep as much structure in place since this is gonna be a very slow project du...

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

I will try to get some fairing compounds applied as well. Last nite there was a pack of coyotes in our yard going abso...

Re: 1979 19 ft Sea Ox rebuild

Also, do not attempt to roll up the sides. If you want to do the sides; use 1708 tapes or the 10" cutoff you need to make to get room to work in the boat. The sides are easy to do as a smaller piece, but as a full sized roll; they will tend to be trouble and would also require a thixo fillet--a bit ...

Re: 1979 19 ft Sea Ox rebuild

Lay out another piece of glass just like that one but for the other side. With 1700 you will not have the same problems wetting it out like 1708 does. You can then fold one side to the outside and wet the first piece out. Then fold the other piece back down. Work bow to stern. When you run out of r...

Re: 1979 19 ft Sea Ox rebuild

The boat is 19 ft long, the beam is 6ft 3 inches and the height is 2 ft 2 inches in the back of the boat. Before the max speed I reached was 39 mph. I’m assuming with the jack plate and loosing all the weight from the soaked transom, foam and stringers maybe mid 40s on the speed? Not 100% sure on t...

Re: Vacuum Bagging

Why are you using peel ply on the mold surface? When I was making bigger panels than yours I would want one smooth exterior surface so I kept it against the glossy mold surface. I tried a few panels with no peelply down and I experienced resin following the fiberglass more than I liked. The triax i...
