  1. Jesus ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I Paraphrase, all that come to me will have eternal life! Those that are in aggressive denial of a higher entity are usually the ones that are in the state of Do I believe, or not. They are confused. They are very forward in there attacks on the truth. Compassion and Prayer is what's needed. We talk about boats, and all sorts of things on this forum. I would hate if someone told us what we could talk about, and what we couldn't! I love building boats, I love talking about boats, its just my thing, But if another subject comes up, I'm ready to go, nothing is off the table. I may not have much to add to certain subjects but I'm here, and I will reply with compassion and try to understand. Scott
  2. Got the back seat in, transom brackets and a bunch of no show stuff over the last few weeks. Might actually get this thing in the water this summer. Still haven't made the rub rails or the mahogany cap that goes all the way around the top deck and the transom. It will cap off the rub rails down the sides also. But as we all know once the hull is done there still is masts, rigging, trailer, rudder and countless small things!
  3. Coming along, spend a few hours fitting the seats. It took a bit longer fitting around the ribs than I thought but turned out good.
  4. Tried the epoxy high build primer total boat from Jamestown, it was tough to mix, but other than that seems good at a good price. Got a final sanding with 220 then I flip it over and get start on the topsides again. I had to run the bottom paint a lot higher than I wished to, for cosmetic reasons. Had to fair some of the mahogany strips a bit. Going to paint the bottom with two part off white then a boot, hope that will be enough smoke and mirrors to compensate for the high bottom paint.
  5. Very!!!! clean neat looking work! kind of unusual to see, but very nice!!!!
  6. So Sorry this project is over for me, Truly wish someone would take over with the love and care I put into her.
  7. As much as I hate to this dream is going to the burn pile soon, so if anyone knows of someone that could be interested please let me know. It just has to go. Its a great hull, been built and always stored inside out of the sun and rain.
  8. Yes, the whole build is on the forum unless they have been deleted I guess I should check. https://messing-about.com/forums/topic/7737-28-foot-crusier/page/2/#comments
  9. I strip built this hull in cypress and is glassed inside and out with 17oz bi-axle fiberglass. I have about $6500 dollars in it. It's free to the first person that will come and get it. It sets on a trailer that is NOT road worthy but can be used to get it on another trailer. I have access to a crane for a fee to load also. This is a very solid well built hull, I just don't have the resources or the health to continue with it. Message me if your interested. Scott
  10. Thanks Graham, I'm using epoxy primer and two part paint. This will be the first time I rolled it on , usually spray it.
  11. Getting ready to glass bottom. How long does epoxy need to cure before painting? I'm going to set it outside in the sun for a few days and let it bake. Will that be long enough with the hull getting hot?
  12. On the Belhaven it calls for filling that space with expanding foam after coating in epoxy and before putting the lid on. Not only is there nothing to vent then, but it also adds some impact resistance to the area. Scott
  13. Yea Chic the one I brought you had all the seats and bulkheads in. This one was not very far along, just past folded open with the front bulkhead in and most side planking. I actually bought rights to three so I still got one that's not started.
  14. I started this spindrift over 10 years ago, it got set aside for other projects shortly after I got started. But I was needing something to do this winter that would fit in the garage so out she came. The bottom of the hull is 1/4 inch meranti and the sides are 3mm oakume planked with 1/4 inch mahogany. The transom is rounded mahogany and the front deck is mahogany and birdseye maple. I'm moving along at a good pace now so I will bee posting a few pictures along the way for those that are interested. There is a lot of customizing of this boat, its the basic design with some pretty's added. She will come in 40 to 50 pounds over weight I'm sure but she will sure be purty! Heres a pic of the deck roughed in.
  15. Chic I used off white glass bubbles from Raka then mixed maple flour slowly till it was close. Worked pretty good, thanks for the help all. Sanded real easy, looks good now sanded, we'll see what it looks like after everything is coated. Might have a picture tonight on a new spindrift thread.
