Re: Bought a 23 Pacific

Stanley, I'm sure the resident experts will be along shortly (Kmorin? WelderBob?..) but in the meantime, what year is the boat ? Do you have or can you post pics of the pitting/electronics mounting ? There are several solutions to galvanic corrosion, but Tef Gel seems to be the go to coating for Sta...

Re: Side mount rod holder suggestions?

I used Clickbond to mount SS studs under the gunnel to which rod racks were mounted. Added benefit is that the acrylic adhesive isolates the SS from the aluminum hull so there's no galvanic reaction. http://www.clickbond.com/ Weldmount is similar - http://www.weldmountsystem.com/?gclid=CLeliMrJmMsCF...

I've been waiting to see one of these built.
I'd really like to see a sportfish/recreational version of this :beer:

Re: 26' Thomas marine

Try private messaging Welderbob here (you can find him in the members index) or alternatively, go onto his FB page and contact him there:

He used to work for Tom Carney (Thomas Marine) and he may know that boat.

Re: Pacific 2025V Auction east coast

The carpeted bunk trailer gives me pause. Looks like it's on the trailer most of the time (no bottom paint).
I'd like to see what's underneath that carpet...or where the bunk meets the boat...

That was a great deal.

Re: Gravois reborn as a series of Metal Shark

Impressive. Going over in my mind how I would modify mine, if I had the means. Wondering about the floor: what is it made of and how would it be compatible with the hull/deck ? My years of perusing AAB has beaten into me the cautions of placing dissimilar materials against the hull/deck, and it was ...

Re: New pacific 26 ST

I'm curious why you didn't extend the seat in front of the console to the floor and have it as an extra storage locker ?

I like the upright helm for nav screens, nice !

Re: How to Build a Small Business !

A 26' Bill Lincoln designed CC built by Bob (WelderBob) is on my bucket list. I like to buy local food and locally made boats. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to buy new at the moment so the V23HT in Greenport would have been a temporary cure for my two foot-itis. It sold before I could even take a g...

Re: Repainting my Pacific flooring

Dumb question perhaps but how do you drill the screws out? break the head off first then drill? I have struggled with these things before and they are a pain in the but! I'd try to back out the screw with an impact driver. If the head breaks off, I take a pointed metal punch and dimple the center o...
