Re: GV 11 drain plug

I like that logic. History has proven I'm capable of forgetting plugs mounted on the outside, so I may as well have it accessible on the inside.

Re: GV 11 drain plug

Here's the dumb question of the day: should this be installed so it is accessible from the inside or outside? I'm thinking inside to if it pops out I'll be able to stick it back in, but maybe I'm overlooking something.

GV 11 drain plug

I need to install a drain plug in the transom of my (almost complete) GV 11. The only type of plug I have any familiarity with a brass tube that you cut and then flare out to tighten. However, since the transom is only a single sheet of ply where it needs to be installed I think it would be difficul...

Re: FS14 from Seattle

Craig, I’m a personal injury lawyer in Seattle so I deal with stuff a lot. There’s a good chance I’ve met whatever insurance adjuster you’re dealing with. Usually property damage claims are pretty easy to sort out. If you have any questions about whatever the insurance company offers you, I’d be hap...

Re: GV11 build Seattle

Also, a couple questions regarding foam: I'm putting two sheets of 2 inch XPS on each side of each bench, per the specs. I ended up with some gaps, which I filled with an XPS safe adhesive. The hardware store ran out of loctite foamboard adhesive, so I used liquid nails extreme heavy duty, which the...

Re: GV11 build Seattle

I have not been good about updating my progress. I thought I'd be posting more questions as I went along, but have been able to find a ton of info in the archives on here. Getting pretty close to launching. Working on installing the foam right now, then a little more fairing and installing the hardw...

Re: How long can you go without UV protection on fiberglass?

Thanks, guys. Got it under a tarp for now during the day and airing out at night.

How long can you go without UV protection on fiberglass?

I'm building a GV 11 outside, I've got the outside of the hull glassed but not primed and painted yet. I usually leave the tarp off so moisture doesn't build up inside (inside isn't fully coated yet). I had some things come up at work, so it may be a few more weeks before I get time to apply primer....

Camper plans

Are there any photos out there of the collapsing camper?

Thinking about my next project after I finish my GV11, and I was thinking about building a little camper. Looks like a cool design, but couldn’t find any discussion on it on the forum.
