Re: Cape Man's Dory

Thanks for the page 198 direction Capeman. I should have remembered that and gone back to find it on my own. I'm thinking that fit may work on my LB22. Don't much want a Bimini top on her, but the umbrella top could be stashed out of the way in the cabin. You're the man.

Re: Cape Man's Dory

Very cool Father's Day. I sure like the idea of that umbrella. When it's folded down but still in its holder can it withstand running at 25 to 30 mph? Is it in a holder or two like this: https://www.amazon.com/Dilwe-Umbrella-Adjustable-Stainless-Mounting/dp/B07F8WN82D/ref=sr_1_9?dchild=1&keywords=Bo...

Re: SK14 in TX

Congratulations on graduation and the build project. I built one and love it. It's a fun project that ends up with a fun boat. Keep posting and many will follow along.

Re: The Plytanic 2.0 - FS17 Build

Wow, so sorry to see that. I used EMC on the little SK14 and had such a different experience. Makes me wonder what's goin on with the stuff. I know I'd take a week off at least to re-group. It's cosmetic and fixable for sure, the cost being time and/or money. At my stage in life I'd give thought to ...

Re: Lm18 madison wi

That first cut on your pretty build would be hard for me too. It would be a huge project for me 'cuz I struggle with the engine control/steering stuff but I've no doubt you'll be very happy with the console control when finished.

Re: Aft storage compartments humming

Maybe those two for/aft bulkheads walling in the battery are vibrating? I'd wedge something between 'em, like a clamp reversed to push or even a couple of sticks forced in. Or someone to hold their hand in places when underway. Seems like that'd isolate the sound and then maybe your rubber type pain...

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

I'd want my throttle easy to hand when standing, as that's what I naturally do in any extra attention situations, like docking, rocks, stumps, etc.

Re: Going with Kiwi Grip Nautolex marine vinyl flooring SUCKS!!

I used Kiwigrip on two builds and would again. Only problem was when I didn't sand over S3 primer much. I either forgot to sand or just touched some of it a bit with 220 can't remember, then rolled on with some several year old left over Kiwi. Wasn't enough tooth and the stuff peeled right off. Othe...

Re: Mike Schwind's SK14 Build

I just used SYP (pine) from the box store (HD) for my rub rail. It's got a coat or two of epoxy then three coats of Cetol. I don't know about Cypress, but bet it would be nice
