Re: FREE 17 MAKO

Thank you Joel for all the help! I did wind up cutting the mold down so I won't need more molds. I would like to try them though. What do you think about the transome. If you remeber I built it with left over coosa. The verticle support are basically stringer extensions that tie to the transom and t...

Re: FREE 17 MAKO

Thought i would post pics of the hatches I am making. Started by using MDF to build the hatch reciever. I built it at 24"x36". i was originally building them for a different boat so they are a little big but will work. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/14945/normal_IMG00007-20110314-0742.jp...

Re: FREE 17 MAKO

I should probably start a new thread but wantd to update the "Free Mako" status. I decided to redue this boat. So I took the transome core out as well as the stringers. Mentined above the strigers were broke/rotted. I am going back with foam as I was given a ton of it by a friend. I have no issue wi...

Re: Gel coat over Quick Fair, compatability?

Larry, is it just tacky feeling? Yuo may already know but for a finished gel coat you need to put wax in it to keep the air from hitting during the cure or spray PVA over the wet gel coat to do the same thing, seal the surface from getting air to it. You probably know that but thought I would say ju...

Re: FREE 17 MAKO

Joel, Wanted to get your thoughts, guidance and advice on my latest brain fart. The 23' bay boat above is not really "pratical" for what I want. The boat runs really well as verified by a ride on my buddy's identical boat. What i would like to do is raise the free board. I have looked at "skabbing" ...

Re: FREE 17 MAKO

Joel,

If you want it no problem. The stringers did not crack at the same point(s). The bottom is cracked at one location but running paralell to the stringer not perpendicular. Just let me know if you do want it. I'll enail my cell to you if you want to ask anything specific

FREE 17 MAKO

Joel, Wanted to follow-up on our conversation yesterday. I have a 17 Mako available if someone would like to take it as a project. I demo'd out the floor and interior already. Needs all new stringers. I just picked up another project so this one is not going to happen. I have the title so all is goo...

Re: 1971 MAKO REBUILD

It did not have the console Joel. I really just want a small "guide" type console.
