Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

Jeff, I'm only aware of one hardener as well, it's just interesting that it's called out as slow since the quickfair and ezfillet don't have a speed listed at all. I do wish there was a fast hardener, since it hardens much slower than the other silvertip products.

Why it's called slow I don't know.

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

I have used a lot of Gel Magic on my build and really like it. I have used the slow hardener but if I were to start over I'd go with the regular. Waiting for the slow to set up has delayed my progress a few times. Enjoy your build! Is there fast and slow gelmagic hardener or are you talking about t...

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

An album of some progress from today: 3AafC I have the garage cooking up to about 90 before I leave for dinner, hoping the bottoms are dry enough to flip and do the other sides when I get home. Also maybe that will get the gelmagic from yesterday to finally finish curing, the stuff takes much longer...

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

With the 5 gallon jug I plan to just use it to keep refilling the 1 gallon jug I put a pump in. As long as you have 1 of the single gallon bottles I don't think the big one is a problem. If it was just the 5 gallon, it would be unwieldy.

Alright, got a good day of work in. Added a gallery with descriptions of everything I did. Time for a shower.

Tomorrow I'll glass the other side of the side panel seams and start putting the strongback and molds together.

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

I read through that thread before even purchasing the plans capeman, it is a great one. Helped with my decision to go raised sheer. I got my epoxy order in at just about double the FS17 kit plus a few extras like system three yacht primer. Hopefully won't have to worry about running out during the b...

Re: OD18 Build

I may be wrong but i don't think there is such thing as a blush free epoxy.Some are less prone to it but given the right conditions it can happen. Nice work on the boat,build on! Silvertip laminating resin claims "Cures without forming an amine blush with either the fast or slow hardener." No perso...

Re: OD18 Build

Propane creates moisture which can cause blush,a blanket or tarp over the boat and a small electric heater does wonders for slow hardener. That was one reason I was looking for a blush free epoxy for the build I'm starting, since the only way I can heat the shop quickly is a open propane heater. Al...

Re: Tools for the Christmas list

I recently got a nice bosch circular saw that is worm drive so the blades on the side I can see easily(right handed) and I've really been loving that. Good blades for all saws are a huge bang for your buck, I took the suggestion of many here and got freud diablo blades for all my tools. Stocking up ...

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

Thanks Jeff, as soon as I estimate how much I'll need of everything I'll be in touch about getting an order together.
