Like the others have said the boat looks great! You have about a month before the dust had better be off the wife's stuff :help:

FD,

Do you have any more info on how you did the rope rub rail? I like the look and think it could look good on my HMD19. Any idea what durability is like?

Gorgeous looking build. I fished today on a friend’s 19 foot Yamaha Panga with a 50 HP Yamaha 4 stroke. We fished 7 hours including running 8 miles and trolling lures and pulling live baits and we burnt 3.5 gallons of fuel! Just amazing! I am sure you are gonna get a lot of fun out of yours

Before I rounded over the rubrail, I used a router with a cove bit to route the cove. It would have been difficult to do once it was rounded. I then of course placed a layer ofcepoxy over the rail including the cove. Primed, painted the rail, and then sanded just the cove before I epoxied the rope in the cove. Make sure you buy a rope that is uv stable and water proof. I used 1.5" unmanilla rope from ropeandcord.com. I thought of using the synthetic hemp rope, but it looked like it freys easily. The unmailla is hard. I figured bumping into things it would last and look better longer. When it wears out, ill just replace it for $100. You can see the cove in the pic. The line you see below the rub rail in the paint job was sanded and buffed out.

Its going to be used alot. I'll have it on a lift so I can put it in the water and go. Ive got a large center console, but I'll use this more.

I think that would look great on your HMD19 - it's a very classic look. I had been thinking about doing the same for my next boat, actually - simple, cheap, durable, timeless.

I think the usual thing guys do is bolt a piece of angle iron (or aluminum, more likely) to a router and just walk it along to get that cove cut FD shows.

Yeah, machining the cove is no big deal. I am definitely going to keep it in my storage chest of ideas.

FD,
Thanks for the details on the rope. Your Panga is turning out awesome!
