Re: Canoe Project

Spent a few hours today working on the canoe. Most of the time was spent applying an epoxy fillet and two layers of fiberglass tape to the undersides of the gunnels. Also, continued to glue up the thwart seams and removed the wire stitches in the seams previously glued up. Capeman, the design is the...

Re: PG22 or PG25?

Pangas are pretty narrow boats. The 25 is only 8" wider than the 22. The 25 is going to feel more roomy without alot of extra weight too.

Re: Canoe Project

Fred, thanks for the syringe idea. Haven't tried that one yet. I've got metering pumps on all of my epoxy resin and hardener containers now.

Re: FS17 Build

Looking good! I know what you mean about cleaning up the excess. If I do a quick fillet and don't clean up and smooth it right away, I always pay with more time sanding later. Sanding is my least favorite part of boatbuilding. I'm following your build with a lot of interest. My next project will be ...

Re: Canoe Project

I decided to begin fitting the yoke now. There is a lot of fabrication involved with the yoke. Many pieces of fiberglass and tape and fillets, etc. It is something I can work on concurrently with the other jobs. Gluing it up here will allow me to remove the stitches and begin the fiberglass work. Th...

Re: Canoe Project

Trimmed the fiberglass cloth off of the seat brackets and the bulkheads. Added fillets and fiberglass cloth to the sides of the seat brackets. Also did some touch up work here and there, preparing for fiberglassing the outside of the hull.

Re: Canoe Project

The decks and gunnels were stitched on the hull and have been tabbed in place with epoxy fillets. The wire stitches have been removed. The seat rails have received an epoxy fillet on top between the rail and hull after removing the stitch wires. A layer of 6 oz fiberglass cloth has been applied to t...

Re: ORCA kayak questions

Unless you enlarge the cockpit significantly, I think you'll find a sit inside sea kayak of any size difficult to shoot or fish out of. They are not the most stable of craft for those activities. What you are contemplating might be better with a decked over canoe or a bateau. A garvey style boat wit...

Re: Canoe Project

Got some work done on the canoe this morning. Used the SIlver Tip Yacht primer to paint the interior of what will become dry storage hatches/flotation chambers in the bow and stern. Also used the Primer to paint the undersides of the seat assemblies. Easy to work with, cleans up with water. Very low...
