Experimental FS12

Post by R00kie » Fri Dec 14, 2018 8:11 pm

I summarized a recent build with a Microsoft Word document. Trying to post it but not very tech savvy. It was pretty big, so I converted it to a .PDF. Here is to hoping it works

Looks like it worked. BTW, my goal of nearly meeting design weight wasn't too high of a bar. It weighed 160# before priming and paint

Nice build! Beautiful boat.

Wow, that is a beautiful boat. Everything is so clean. I probably have an extra 50 pounds of fairing on mine. Really nice work.

Thanks, I probably have you beat on excessive fairing on my first boat (FS17). Talk about wax on, wax off. I'll bet I vacuumed 150# of epoxy dust off of the floor and left a lot of excess on the boat.
On this boat, the scale was smaller, but I squeegred each wet out almost dry and then squeeged peel ply on what was left. Major difference on fairing. Very little was required
