Re: GF16 fuel rigging question

My suggestion would be to keep the inline water separator and filter. It is cheap insurance against bad gas.

Re: GT27 Plans and Safety

The CS 23 is a far more capable boat than the FS 17 for offshore use with its big bow flare and deep hull. The FS 17 would be better for inshore fishing use and light offshore duty.

Re: Canoe Project

Got the canoe hull sanded one time around with 80 grit. Will go around it one more time and then hit it with 120 grit in preparation for epoxy graphite on the bottom and system three primer on the sides. Can't seem to upload a picture right now. Getting some weird error message. Will post pictures o...

Re: Layout dreaming/designing (FS17)

How about under the sole, between the console and the casting deck? That is where I intend to put mine in the FS 19 that I will be building soon. Saves lots of space and keeps the weight down low and centered.

Re: Canoe Project

The parts were cut out with a CNC machine, then trimmed and sanded, edges beveled by hand. This morning I trimmed the excess fiberglass cloth off of the yoke, but the epoxy was still too green to sand. I was able to clear all 24 of the drainage hole cutouts on the gunwales in about 30 minutes with a...

Re: ST21 "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

This has been a great build to follow. Certainly it is one of the most technically interesting builds and ambitiously different as well. You've done a lot in a year. Congratulations and best wishes in the New Year for continued boat building success!

Re: Canoe Project

Not sure if anyone is following this build anymore. I reached a major milestone. Got the last major piece of construction done tonight. Filleted the seam between the top of the yoke and the gunwales, then covered the seam with overlapping pieces of 6 oz fiberglass cloth. Will trim off the excess fib...

Re: Another SK14

Looking good. I'm about to start fairing my canoe and will follow that with epoxy/graphite on the bottom too. WIll probably use a heat gun to try and get the epoxy graphite to lay a little smoother if it is cold when I get to that point. You gotta like Harbor Freight. Just was there resupplying on M...

Re: Canoe Project

Took advantage of a rainy day to do a little more work on the canoe. Added the stiffening strips under the gunwales on the port side. Will do the other side probably tomorrow. Didn't have enough clamps to do both sides at once. Will post a picture in the morning.
