Re: cleaning uncured epoxy from boat

YES! Good old white vinegar should be in the tool box when working with epoxy. Makes clean up very easy. I store my epoxy in a milk crate that slides under the work bench. To start I pull out the larger resin bottle, then select the speed hardener I will be using and put it behind the resin bottle o...

Re: I need Propeller and or engine help

I don't know anything about boat props but seems that pitch of prop is very close to what you are looking for? Maybe down an inch on the pitch cause not enough blade area left to call it a 14X13? So how would a stranger get there in a car and be lost at the same time? NOTE STATEMENT: The only way to...
