Re: Fitz 21 CC Transom Stringer Sole R&R

The T-Top is on the boat and temporarily bolted down for the trip back to Tampa. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/24192/normal_20140511_120950~0.jpg I'm really happy with the design and am glad the guys down there talked me into the Black Powder Coat http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userp...

Re: 14' skiff transom core question

Check my calcs, but if you figure 48 inches by 20 inches, by about 1/16 inch thick, would be 120 cubic inches or about 33oz of volume, so about a quart of mixed putty would be a good guesstimate in my opinion if you can get it clamped up good and flat. I'm not sure how much the fillers take up by vo...

Re: Fitz 21 CC Transom Stringer Sole R&R

A few more pix as paint prep proceeds (say that three times) one side done in 3 coats of primer after hitting the old blue gel coat with a good round of 120G on the DA. I finally pulled it out to get some good pix. Should finish the priming this weekend. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/24...

Re: 24 Sea Bird CC

Just to add a thought, that boat also appears a bit narrow for its length. Raising the CG will affect the amount of roll, which is not good for a grouper digger (or most offshore boats for that matter.) A guy I know figured that out after adding a hard top and tower and a ton of other accessories on...

Re: Need suggestions - Leaning Post (well, box)

Very Nice work! YOU'll get a lot of good use from that setup. Good design, simple, and practical use of space.
Let's see it mounted up!

Re: 24 Sea Bird CC

Re: 24 Sea Bird CC

Looks like a cool project. I like the lines a lot. I am not an expert on I/O's or inboards, but I was thinking about your statement that you want a flat deck with no steps. I assume you are talking about the foredeck area. One thing to keep in mind for fishing and just in general. Since the hull ste...
