Re: RCCS FS 18

Really like the divinyldell stringers......could divinyldell be used in other areas of the boat? Can it be used as a replacement for the plywood? Would it be rigid enough to tie wrap and hold true lines while tabbing together? Understanding that cost would increase. Sorry if this has been addressed ...

Sterling paint tape removal

If I am putting on 3 coats of Sterling (1 every 24 hours), when can I remove the tape?
After each coat & re-tape???.....or once after all 3 coats (3 days)

Re: FS18 rub rail choices

I'm talking about the rubber rub rail. Which ones best for making bend @ bow and doesn't look wavy. Lots of different choices.

FS18 rub rail choices

Which rub rail best suits the fs18. My concerns are the sharp bend @ the bow and also want to avoid a rail that looks wavy. I've read the techniques of heating the rail to help the bend @ the bow. Confused about all the different types. Which one is best?

emc color card (missing colors)?

I noticed a few colors available that are not listed on the color card download. Yamaha Metallic Blue, CTI Blue and there are a few more. Is there another color card?

Re: FS18 sole thickness

No. Saw on plans that decks were 3/8 but didn't see sole thickness. Assumed sole and deck were the same. To clarify, is the sole 1/4 or 3/8?
