Re: New XF20 build plan questions

Re: SK14 in TX

Really nice finish!!! Definitely an example of how neat epoxy work and a good fairing job pays off! Can't wait to see it in the water.

Re: SK14 in TX

Thanks for the help! I’m using Interlux bright side paint. To prep the surface, I sanded the primer with 320 grit. Then I vacuumed and used the air compressor to get the dust out of the boat. After that, I used a slightly damp wash cloth to wipe the boat down and remove any remaining dust particles...

Re: Mike Schwind's SK14 Build

Wouldn't be my first choice but it will work. The skeg is almost sacrificial anyway. I like to use Poplar. Easy to find and it is a good, hard, consistent wood. Not expensive either.

Re: SK14 build in Louisiana

Quick Fair would work really nice in our case. You don't have very "aggressive" cloth to fair so you will need less fairing compound than if you were fairing in 12oz. Quick Fair is nice because it can be hand sanded in 3 hours and mechanically sanded in 4 hours (times vary depending on cur...

Re: new build GT Cruiser 23

Fallguy is right. The stations are simply temporary frames that are attached to the strongback. They provide the skeleton to wrap the hull panels on. Most of the time, the stations are in the same locations as the permanent frames. Once the hull has been planked, stitched, and fiberglassed the hull ...

New Tank and Grabrail

Hey everyone, I just wanted to share this with you. We had a customer order a custom fuel tank and grab rail for a 16' Conchfish they are building. The tank is 9 gallons and the grab rail is 39" tall and will fit an RTic 52 in between the legs. Our welder just dropped them off and I wanted to b...

Re: SK14 build in Louisiana

Cforester821, Fiberglassing the deck is optional. I would recommend using 6 or 10 oz woven cloth. Glassing the decks would simply give you some abrasion resistance and slightly more rigidity. You would only need to glass the topside of the decks, the underside would simply be coated in epoxy. Person...
