OD16 getting closer

Post by anflyer »

I am getting closer to the finish line. I flipped the boat over a couple of weeks ago and this past saturday I fiberglassed the outside with the biax and a layer of 4oz. cloth (wet on wet). It is incredible how much time the 4oz. should save in fairing. It leaves the surface very smooth. Will post some pics soon.

Looking good!

And it looks like you, the sander, and that shop vac have been busy. :lol:

I hope mine is finished this summer. Its rewarding to see them turn into boats, even when looking at someone else's work.

What sort of console you planning, if? I like what EvilD did with the T-top. Similar plans?

For those of us stuck on dialup connections, 600 or 700 pixel wide photos load alot faster... these gave me time to make some toast. :lol: But they look great!

Goodlooking work man! Now all the fun stuff starts after you are done fairing. Looks like she will be a strong boat.

I didn't even have to look where you are from, just looking at the yards in your hood and yours I knew it was South Florida. Like the Christmas Palm and looks like a nice place! Sure would love to get a job down that way I have South Florida in my blood, I just need to move my blood from South Alabama 800 miles farther!

Keep up the good work man!

KS, this is the console I made. It is a little larger than the one on the plans. I'm not sure if I am going to add the T-top or just go with a bimini top. I like to fish in the Everglades / Flamingo area in S. Florida and some of those places have heavy mangrove growth that will be difficult to go through with the T-top. I definately like the look of EvilD's though.

The pictures are 800x600, I will try to make them smaller.

Yeah you can't beat the winter weather in S. Florida. Hopefully I can finish the fairing this weekend :help: and get ready for the primer (System 3)
