After long hours of grinding I found that you must always wear a face guard and use any means necessary to prevent infiltration of unwanted debris into your duct taped tyvek suit. Shine had suggested an air chisel, and when combined with 16 grit disks you cant lose. You Must Take Your Time and that ...

I am at the same point with my project and had a couple of questions on yours. The placement of you console, how did you decide. Did you look at someone else's Aquasport or calculate it. The Leaning post/live bait well, what would be a good separation distance from the console. Is there a standard? ...

Resin hardeners

I recently bought some more Marine Epoxy resin, I purchased the split kit Fast/Slow. My concern is the slow hardener is a much lighter yellow than my last order but the fast is the same color as the last orders slow. Is this normal, is it because it came from a different batch? I would like to merry...

Fuel Tank Installation

http://gallery.bateau2.comdisplayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=0&pos=0 Can the tank rest on the hull separated buy neoprene pads? I don't have a lot of room to build a cradle. The tank was foamed in place before and I don't wish to do that. I would rather just brace the sides and let it rest on pads o...

I am getting ready to install the fuel tank. It was originally foamed in and is shaped to the hull. Could I lay strips of some water proof neoprene material perpendicular to the chine against the hull. I am trying to get around building a cradle because the tank doesn't have a rectangular cross sect...

I found some 16 grit grinding disks for the 4.5" grinder and they cut glass like butter. What was taking me HOURS was reduced to minutes. A local tool shop in St. Augustine carries them, I had never seen 16 grit disks before but I am glad I found them. If you have more than one grinder (I have three...

Southern Yellow Pine is what many of the older homes are built out of down here. I think you mean Heart Pine, mostly rosy with a little yellow and lots of juice. Yellow pine is what they pass as Heart Pine these days because there is no more heart pine unless it has been recovered from demolition a...
