Rubber grommets for rigging through bulkheads

Thanks!

Re: LM18 low sheer Side Console ?

I do not have any expertise on this but I love side consoles on smaller boats. It opens up the deck, and makes rigging so much easier. I am putting a small elevated side console on my build and I’m very excited about it. I’m also excited about not penetrating the sole and running chase tubes. For So...

Re: Electrical Wiring, battery questions

this is my plan so far: Two batteries. First, A dedicated trolling motor deep cycle located in the bow. I will wire the battery to a fused disconnect/switch. Im not sure what the actual connection from the switch to the trolling motor leads will look like because I don’t have the motor yet. I will h...

Re: Salt Boatworks FRS15 Build

Should I tape and glass over the filets while they’re still completely wet, or wait until they tack up slightly?

Re: Electrical Wiring, battery questions

So, a deep cycle strictly for the trolling motor, and a dual purpose for starting and the other loads?

Re: Salt Boatworks FRS15 Build

Going to start filets and glassing one compartment at a time this week. Received my biax cloth and tape this weekend, thanks Reid. Waiting for a respirator and roller to arrive from our Overlord, Jeff Bezos.

Any tips on sanding the tack welds before putting down proper filets and glass?

Electrical Wiring, battery questions

I’m drawing out the schematics for my 15 foot skiff build, and My lack of experience with marine electronics is showing. I have some questions. My 12v loads are: motor starter, trolling motor, nav lights, interior light, VHF, fish finder, horn. Should I have two batteries? One starting battery for t...

Re: Salt Boatworks FRS15 Build

I’m west of Charlotte, almost four hours from the coast. I grew up in Tampa Bay FL so I miss the salt water. It’s also a lot colder here.
