Re: My perfect do-it-all boat

The GP21 comes to mind... not quite as big but not a small boat. I kind of like the door option and it should answer any questions about self-bailing soles...

Re: Garvey 13 first time build

Pictures! lol.

What's the temp where you're applying the fairing mix and are you using slow / medium? It helps to know the brand as well. If you're using slow enough epoxy mix you can probably work small batches, adding filler until you're happy with it.

Re: PH18 Build in North Dallas

Be careful lest it become self-aware and start leaving the fridge open... Looks well thought-out.

Re: GF16 In The PSL

I'd think leaving it black would be out of the question - wouldn't that be crazy hot sitting in the sun for a few hours?

You could do a wrap on it with rope...?

Re: Mind's Slow OD18 Build

Stringers, bow-section cut out showing offset / overlap. They're held together here so I can even them out somewhat. Note the voids here looking like little dark lines. The little ones I will fill with a small dowel soaked in epoxy. The bigger ones I'll just fill with epoxy. http://i973.photobucket....
