Re: Mark's PH18 in Toronto

Well I am now re wirtting this because I am a bonehead. I am a novice mold builder/user at best but these are my thoughts. Wax it 5-10 times before you lay it up. I have released off of untouched awlgrip as well as enamal primer that is sanded to 220 grit without a problem. Both examples shown here....

Re: OB 15

My OB 15 had a 40hp mariner. When it ran right it did 35mph. Really great boat. I wish I had kept it and powered it with a new 40 or 50. Good luck!

Re: FREE 17 MAKO

Got it. That was the plan. More because I was doing it outside the boat but I understand why you say go that way. Thanks

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" ...
