Re: a few questions

The FL14 and that small engine will get by with 3/8" and a clamping board if I am not mistaken. Rick

Re: OB 15 vs OD 16

What kind of waters will you be on? Open? Protected, flat, wavy etc. This will help with suggestions. Rick

It's nested down in the "scoop". How can it be seen? Rick

If mixing brands, wait for a cure and then sand. Rick

Re: OB17 6" biaxial tape

IHMO, put at least a thin layer of glass on ALL exposed surfaces or you risk checking after some time. I am in NY and my meranti 1088 checked after a few years. Then not at all after a layer of 6 oz. glass. Rick

Re: OB17 6" biaxial tape

It should tell you in the plans, probably 12 oz. I would stick with the 1088 of either for the hull, my choice would be the Meranti, it's stronger. Rick

Re: Fairing to Primer to Paint

Do the wash with a scotchbrite pad and water. This kills 2 birds with one stone, cleaning and removing the gloss from the epoxy, thus giving the next coat some bite. Rick

Re: FS14: jaydillyo's first build

I found the same thing with plywood pricing. Even with the shipping to western New York, it was cheaper than the fir marine plywood that is available locally. Rick
