Re: SK14 in TX

AggieGirl, Looks pretty good so far! Like Fuzz said, you need to add some spacers between your panels. There should be spacing in between every seam. This allows the fillet to do its job and join the seams. You may have read in the plans or on the Forum that you need to avoid "Hard spots". This is w...

Re: SK14 in TX

AggieGirl, Looks good so far! Nice progress!! Don't worry too much about the transom issue. If you want, you can fix it now before you hang the transom. Just mix up a little woodflour and epoxy, fill those spots and sand them level. Going forward, remember, the cleaner you work the less sanding/fair...

Re: LM18 For Sale

Colemanfire,

I can't believe you are selling the LM! Does $10K include the trailer also?
With or without the trailer, $10K is a great price for that boat. As we all know, that is a well built boat!

What are you thinking of building next?

Re: aluminum trailer for LM18

We have been working with Float-On Trailers out of Vero Beach. They have made us (Boat Builder Central) a distributor. I put my FS18 on one and have sold a few others for customers. One was for another FS18 and the other was for another 14' design. They are great trailers, built well, and customized...

Re: Coating with epoxy: getting smooth surfaces

Matt, I coated a table with our MarinEpoxy as well as the sign for our front desk. Both came out really smooth and crystal clear. IMG_3426.JPG I simply coated the wood with an initial layer of MarinEpoxy (slow). This coat sealed the wood and was not put on thick at all. Once cured, I sanded with 120...

Re: GV 11 materials question

And one final question, should the interior of the hull be glassed before the frames are attached (so there would be longer sheets across the whole hull) or after (which would involve different pieces navigating around the frames)? Seems like glassing before the frames would be easier, but I'm not ...
