Re: The Plytanic 2.0 - FS17 Build

A couple of thoughts.... I like to use a ~6ft 'whip' hose to the gun with the regulator before it instead of right on the gun, the gun and paint cup is heavy enough for larger projects without having to be holding the regulator steady as well. (I know lots of people mount it directly to the gun thou...

Re: Plyak12 build by gbgb

I am curious as to what failed. Was it the epoxy? (that would be troubling....) or did it peel up a layer of the plywood? (also seems a bit weird)

Re: FS17 - July 27, 2020 - Narfi's Build

How tender is the boat? That's one of the things I'm most curious about. With a few people on board do you need to be careful as people move around at all or pretty stable? It seemed pretty stable, but I didn't really test that much. If weather is nice and we go out tonight, I might try walking aro...

Re: FS17 - July 27, 2020 - Narfi's Build

Congrats Narfi, she looks great on the water!!! Jeff Thanks!!! Congratulations! Looks like it's floating nice. 24mph at 3500rpm is pretty good with a stock prop. I was hoping for a 25-26mph cruise at 3800-4000rpm when I'm done. To many people focus on WOT speed, but how often will you run wide open...

Re: FS17 - July 27, 2020 - Narfi's Build

Your boat looks right at home on the water and I really like the angle it is on plane. Bet there was 3 very happy people putting that thing on the water! The extra spray coming up at the transom, is that the transducer kicking it up? Did it read ok on plane? Yes very happy! Was one of those surreal...

FS17 - July 27, 2020 - Narfi's Build

Haven't built the windshields yet, still need to clean up the wire tangles, but it was close enough to lauch. Brand new Mercury so didnt take it over 3500rpm but at 3500 we were going 24mph by the GPS, 17mph at 2800rpm. Thats with 3 of us on board and 19 gallons of fuel. We filled it up with fuel wh...

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

I remember all you were doing to get everything to work. Made my head spin at times reading it! I would just need the tach to read on the display. the little Suzuki has the low oil press light, temp light and I don't remember the last one, but they are just lights on the motor. I would assume just ...
