Lanes P21 *SPLASHED*

Post by fastlane »

hello.

been a long time since i posted so i wanted to share some progress on my p21. Its going on 4 years now but its just about complete and it has turned out really well. Its been a challange with my severe wood alergy but persistance has paid off.

I'm in the process of painting and test fitting everthing now. the hull will be blue with some yellow accent when done.
We put a lot of thought and details into the project and cant wait to hit the water with it. Theres still a lot of work to finish but i can see the finish line.

Very nice, Fastlane! Looks like you're fitting windows in the 2nd photo? What are you using?

Thank you all for the replies. i will be adding more pictures to my gallery once i get them all re-sized.

I would like to thank Dave, Hope2float. He is also building a P21 just a few miles from me. Its been a real help to have him around to ponder and figure out some of the details of this project.

Go for it Baitcaster. I thought about throwing in the towel. the precautions i had to take really extended the built time but well worth it in the end.

Chicagoross The sliding side windows i ordered from Wynne enterprises. I'm very happy with them and the price was fair. less then $400 custom made and delivered. the windshield and side windows are 1/4 plexiglass. i made 1/4 recess to mount them in and will attach with 3m VHB tape and some silicone. I painted a boarder with some plastic paint to cover the mounting and it looks pretty slick, like a car window when installed

HI LANE, I WOULD SUGGEST USING SOMETHING BETTER THAN A SILICONE I OR II. BEING IN THE COMMERCIAL GLASS BUSINESS FOR 10 YEARS NOW, WE HAVE HAD OUR MISHAPS WITH WET GLAZING AS WELL AS BUTT GLAZING WITH SILICONE. DOW CORNING MAKES A STRUCTURAL SEALANT THAT ALLOWS EXPANDING AND CONTRACTING WITHOUT DEALING WITH SHRINKAGE. TWO VERSION "795 AND 995" THOUGH THEY RUN ABOUT $10 -$12 A TUBE,THEY ARE WELL WORTH THE MONEY AND TOOL VERY EASILY. THE CAULK SHOULD BE AVAILABLE AT MOST CONSTUCTION SUPPLY HOUSES,JUST A SUGGESTION.GREAT WORK, YOU SHOULD BE PROUD.

thank you for the reply. the silicone is just to seal the windows and make them look good. The 3m VHB tape is what will be attaching the pane. Off the top of my head i don't recall part number i have but it is a structural adhesive tape specifically designed for bonding plastics and laminates to the exterior of vehicles and buildings. It should be.

Wil you use any thing in addition to the tape to hold the panel in place. How is the tape affected by UV?
