Re: Sharkbait PG20

...Some people put a coat of epoxy over the micro balloon mixture to help with pin holes in the future.... Sorry to hijack your build thread, Sharkbait, but quick pertinent question: Anyone ever try Gelmagic for a neat coat instead of raw epoxy? It applies mush easier, no drips, just not sure if it...

Re: 3D image of FS14LS, Jacques?

It was "fairly" easy.....Not perfect but allows me to visualize the boat and bike on the trailer.

Re: 3D image of FS14LS, Jacques?

I don't like to give out 3D models but you can quickly build one using the stations drawing from the plans. I'll try that, thanks. I'm building a Franken-trailer for the boat and motorcycle for our long trips. Trying to determine exactly how they will interface is the challenging part. This is what...

3D image of FS14LS, Jacques?

Is it possible to get an svg or other 3D image of the FS14ls I can use to help with a trailer design?

Thanks,

Jeff

Re: Simple 8' oar design

Thanks for the input. I'm interested to know how the plywood blades are attached, I'm picturing the loom being forked, is that accurate?

Simple 8' oar design

I want to make some new oars for my driftboat and was trying to think of the simplest design/procure/build. This idea uses 3 8' X .75 X 2.25 strips. Two of the strips will be cut into two pieces at about 24". The shorter pieces will become the blade wings. The three long pieces are then laid up...
