Re: Tabbing stringers and bulheads

Sounds like a comprehensive process for sure, BarraMan. Marking the locations and the glue blocks along the sides seem like key parts of the process. Only step I believe I will add is to take the time to cut a few lateral pieces to fit between the stringers temporarily to keep them vertical and par...

Re: C19 in Richmond, VA

I'm about to be back at the torcher board myself. I think this time, I may put 4 to 5 coats of primer on before I sand. The key is to get it thick enough. Seems like I just kept sanding off the primer.

Re: Coach's SC-16 in MA

What level of finish did you have on the floor before you installed the Seadek? Was it topside? Trying to decide how much time I want to spend on my floor before I cover it with Seadek.

Re: Panga 20 Build

It was a struggle to get all of the epoxy glue on the cleats before it hardened. Another person mixing would have helped. I made it just in time before it setup too hard. Sanded a radius on the inside and outside of the deck. Its ready for fiberglass after I fill a few holes. Should I use biaxial or...

Re: Panga 20 Build

Trying to decide if I should paint under my gunnels. I was thinking since I have to coat them with epoxy, why not just tint the epoxy white or does it even matter to paint under there. You would have to lay down to see under them.

Re: Panga 20 Build

It will get some love once this project is done. I'll use the left over paint from boat to fix it back up.

Re: Panga 20 Build

I dont think the dimensions from the plans for the gunnel cap would of worked since the beam dimensions are not exactly to spec. They were an inch of two out so I had to improvise. I used poster board to get a cut out so I can trace the caps on the plywood.
