ANY smoke pole is better than no smoke pole at all! I sold guns in a very large gun shop in FL for years after my military days and also instructed in our indoor range. We were sure to take and carry a full combat armament when going to gunshows throughout the country. A main side arm and two backup...

In most cases its due to the bow mold being
placed off baseline, best I recall. Its not just
on that boat. Several other builders have had
the issue. If you build per plans it shouldn't
happen.

Fly, Do you have any photos of the spray rails, or from the addition process? I don't know how much spray to expect and in what conditions. Are there any reasons not to add them? I'll definitely be careful not to get goofy with raising the sheer. I've done several drawings by hand, and I almost hav...

I don't know of any other OB15 that has them other than my old one. I'm prolly wrong though, it often happens :D . Yes you can add them after the fact but is much harder with painting and fairing. I did mine after I used the boat for a good year or more. 3-4" is about as high as I would go 6" and yo...

Hardboard is a really dense fiber product mostly dark brown in color. Its pretty close to the same stuff as pegboard. Your going to be glassing that hull anyway you can also use drywall screws to hold it to the sheer. Shine uses them to get his sharpe edge transitions. I used them to hold my rubrail...

MATT In your case I would if I were you use hardboard its like 6-9bucks a sheet and some 200mph tape to hold that to the boat. Roll it out so you can get a good look at it. Mark a point on the bow at which you don't want to pass, a mid point and a point on the transom. Then lay your fineline or blue...

When I was thinking of cutting down the sheer of my OB after it was flipped I backed it out of the carport. I jacked it up to about 4ft on some saw horses. I then used fine line tape, I put on a few pieces/stripes until I got the look I was after. I then back taped with 1"blue panters tape. I did ke...

Depending on which motor, and how its built the OB will draft more than 6" loaded with you and a padna. Boat alone perhaps yes 6" along with a motor and fuel. I would call it more like 8" from the very tip of the V. If you were to build it like the FS and leave out all the rigging, bait wells, and p...
