Joel,

I am going to lay up my hatch gutters this weekend and was thinking about the schedule of the glass. Should I use all 12 oz tape or should I throw in a layer of 17 oz biax with mat backing? One 17 and 2 or three 12?

It will be carrying a lot of load.

I decided to modify the console. It was and still is a big waste of space but now it is more functional. I would have liked to make it narrower but the t-top that came with the boat fits it. It was originally for a Albury Bros boat. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/14360/normal_DSC00102.JP...

Filler over Primer

How well does the S3 Quik Fair bond to the S3 Epoxy Primer?

I primed my gunnel cap and missed a few spots with the filler. I would like to just apply the filler directly to the primer after a little sanding.

On the gunwale cap there were a lot of stress cracks from a mixture of old gel coat and bad driving. I decided to sand and glass the whole cap with 4 oz. This should prevent any of the cracks showing thru the new paint and the 4 oz also conforms easily. I used to make surf boards and have a lot of 4...

Yea, I don't think Calyber makes one like that and with such a little amount of teak. They do however have the console put together very close to the way I plan on doing mine. Good looking cold mold boats. Question: I have a refrigerant vacuum pump that is used for pulling the air out of a coolant s...

I was thinking of adding a wood pedestal to my center console kind of like this one but to the port side. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/12155/normal_console.jpg Joel, what is the make of this boat, or was it just stock photography. I am looking for a couple of different views to judge t...

Tim, be careful that the holes are close together. I used a breather hole and a 4" by 4" hole to pour in my foam. It was going great until the ceiling in my garage started to closer. It had started to lift with me on top. By the end it had almost torn the deck piece completely off. Even with a good ...

Free Motor

Would anyone be interested in a mid 80's 140 hp OMC inboard. It could be used for parts. The exhaust manifold looks to be in good shape. I need to get rid of this thing and I wanted to make sure that no one needed parts. If not it's off to the salvage yard. The catch is you can't just have the trans...

At 0 degrees F, air has a density of 1.296 Kg/m3. At 100F it's density is .946. A difference of about 30%. Also it's expansion coeficient at 0F is 3.67 and at 100F is 2.68. Again a difference of about 30% of. That is assuming that the entire compartment heats at the same rate throughout. There are ...
