Hello guys,

Got some work done in the boat last weekend. I glued the gunwales, drilled and filled the hatches screw holes.

Image

Bad picture, but I had to hush cover it, rain was coming.

Image


Also tested the engine fit. There is some space left in the motorwell, can put a 25HP in it. :D

Image

Image


In engine´s manual, the cavitation plate should be strait or 2,5cm below the bottom of the boat. In my case it´s 3,5 cm below.

Image

Should I put a shin on the transom to set the engine up?

Will this 1 cm affect the performance or fuel consumption?



I also got some fishing! First time offshore.

It was a hard day, few actions, but I got some fresh Tuna to sashimi!

Thanks!

Hi KENBOUCHER, thanks! I saw your build post, you´re doing a good job, I´m sure it will be a good boat!


In the last weekends I glassed and faired the gunwales.

Image


In Easter, my in-laws helped to flip the boat.

Image


So, I had to pay :-)

African Pompano, (pt-br: Xaréu Branco) very common in the summer here, good fighter!
Image


Now I´m sanding the primer and fixing some issues before paint. I used graphite as guide coat.

Image


Image


Image



The primer was really hard, it was applied about one year ago, and like egg shell. After some time with 100gr sand it level, but I´ll add 2 more coats, thinned, before final sand and paint.


I don´t know how to paint it... The full or half bottom? and then the sides?

If I put tape, It will leave a seam mark after paint the other side?


It´s colder here now, but I think I´ll have to thin the paint to avoid it dry too fast and don´t level.


Thanks!

Hello,

Well, not a good day today...

This week I did 2 more coats of primer and hand sanded with 120 and 150gr all boat until all egg pattern disappear.

Washed with water, let it dry and cleaned with Interlux GTA713(recommended by reseller) paint reducer.

Then mixed the paint (Interlux Perfection YNM32Y - Royal Blue) , let it rest for 20 min, reduced by 15%.

I was expecting roll and tip like in all videos I saw in the internet, but the result was different.

The paint didn't got flat after the tip and leave a lot of brush marks....

If you guys have any idea to fix this mess I appreciate it.

I know nothing about painting so I asked and Seaslug helped me out. Go to my thread, Sintes 21 rebuild, in Cracker Larry's corner and then go to page 99. Read what Mike told me there, it helped me a bunch.
