Re: C17 in New Zealand.

Yeah, I see, an overall sand on questionable areas is surely in order. After that how about some kind of microballoon mix for a fairing mix? You wouldn't need much.

Re: C17 in New Zealand.

Some of those holes may not be on high spots and not sand out. I'd just slap a schmear of Quickfair to sand on those.

Re: Mike Schwind's SK14 Build

I agree with Brian. I have a little 1" skeg and don't slide much with 5 hp. I would fair first as I think it may be easier to scrape/sand off a bit of the final fairing where the skeg fits than to fair with the skeg in the way.

Re: LM18 Houston Tx

You can smooth the skeg out by running over oyster beds after she's launched 8)

Re: SK14 in TX

You'll fly with that Yamaha 9.9. Double my Tohatsu 5 and I move along an easy 12mph with a big trolling motor and battery on the nose. I have to be a little careful gunning it in a turn as I can lose my balance a bit if not paying attention. Nice progress on the fairing.

Re: Truck Bed?

Okoume is great. That's what I used. Long shaft can work I think by simply cutting the transom taller. Oet's hear about that from others.

Re: Trolling for spanish mackerel

I'm far from expert 'cuz I've only gotten into them a few times. When I did, I think they'd hit any shiny thing thrown at 'em. In a power boat I'd drift and throw spoons or whatever down wind, 'cuz it's easy to power up and run back upwind after a drift. With sail, I see how trolling makes sense. Tw...
