Re: Recoating Bottom Paint

Re: New from BC. Finally got the pictures figured out!

Graham, The rubber bumper hose on my boat is bolted with the head of the bolt put through from the inside with a fender washer on it at the port transom on one side, then the hose is laid into the "C" channel that runs around the entire hull between the gunnel's and deck material, then when the hose...

Re: E&D BOATS

Looks like a beefy little CC. I like the outboard protector, is she used for gill netting or towing? Question, Why do you not leave a cavity in the hull for a subfloor fuel cell and make a larger fuel capacity rather than that small tank under the CC? I think even if you make the tank sit down in a ...

Chaps, Its really looking nice. I like the angle of the front windshields, I question the diamond plate decking, not very good without non-skid and then its will be harder on your feet. A flat deck with non-skid or the PVC decking I used or the cork that Ironwood uses may have been a better choice. ...

Re: Extending my bottom

Pete, I think the pod you have give your engines more clean water which in turn gives you better speed and fuel effincey. I don't thin you boat is sitting that low in the stern that you need to do anything about it. I would muck rather have a heavier stern than a heavier bow for following seas. If I...

Hey Jim, Looking Good! :P :P :P SEAWOLF is the only other boat builder that I have seen, that incorporates flare in their bows, and because of that, I was really considering them. The fuel capacity and the builders non-flexibility to get me more, lead me away. But, that said, I really like what I se...

Re: Thinking about adding a Bracket

21ftcc, I did one on my Whaler back in 1997, it was good and made the boat ride better with the weight back. I made a transome filler plate for the cutout and a 1/2" alumium plate in the splash well to reinforce the transom. Using large bolts to anchor it. http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/aa308/Ir...
