  1. keen long time since we talked . All I can say is Wow. The metal work is awesome.
  2. awww keen . Been a crazy summer here. My daughter got married, my son had our first grandchild and we will be expecting another grandchild soon. If that wasn't enough for the first time in my life I began working for myself. It has been 4 months now. So I work when the jobs come in and in the near future if work becomes slow I will dedicate large chunks of time to the boat. I have been given orders from the wife to complete the boat before grandchildren get too old. LOL
  3. Keen I have to hand it to you .... great work.
  4. JP Life has been busy. A wedding for my daughter , a first time grandfather ( from my son ) and I am now self employed all happening this summer. When the work comes in "I have to make hay while the sun shines" . I have not given up. Keen to be building again has past me and you will probably will too LOL .
  5. Looking great Keen I am not sure I want to show the wife the center or side console of the OB20 that you are doing...... Would definitey throw a wrench in my plans That bow roller set up is sweet. I have no problem displaying one on the states...... Just saying
  6. At a point where I will be glassing the inside of the OB20 Think I seen on Miyots boat he added wood vertical blocks between the stringers and bulkheads. He then fileted both corners. This will definitely double the epoxy required for the vertical fillets. I do not have pictures of the Stringer construction on the OB picture cd. The drawings as best as I can tell specify 1/2" fillet. Are the wood vertical pieces overkill? If it is usefull to add wood ...... what would be a good species for this ? Southern yellow pine ? Cedar? i have some small pieces of mahogany around? Thanks
  7. She was flipped last Saturday. Went without a hitch. Is what it is. Time to move on.
  8. Had to take her away from home. There was no way I was going to spray awlgrip at home. I really wanted a sprayed finish at least on the hull sides. The color is Awlgrip H 4368 Sea shell green
  9. Russel Nice work. What color is that on the topsides ? Awlgrip seashell green ?
  10. Thank you Trev I have been following your build as well. Not much to report here but the temperatures are going to start being in my favor for painting. That stuff is nasty in the garage. Prime, longboard sand . Prime longboard sand arghhhhh . chasing the hollow spots .... all epoxy primer I have all the confidence in the world to follow Grahams waterline location. I am thinking of at least getting one coat of bottom paint on now ( or maybe both) while she is upside down . Is this the right approach ? I have heard good things about petit hyrdo coat for my intended area. it is ablative and friendly to boats w/ bunks. Then paint the sides. Make small adjustments w/ boot stripe later . Would I be better off w/ the bottom paint too low (under the waterline slightly ) ? I would think i could always scuff topsides a little and add bottom paint as I probably will end slightly heavier than graham designed. Always looking foward for advice. Thanks
  11. keen Your work looks very clean. The reflection of the hull is stunning . Not distorted. WOW
  12. Sacrificial keel added, hollow back stainless shaped and eye hook drilled. Priming progress. I am not keen on drilling many many unnecessary holes for the hollow back..... Anyone have any ideas 3m 4200?
  13. Been so long since I posted. Transom glassed, corners taped, bottom glassed , sides glassed.
  14. Greg Here is the link to my build. I did not purchase the kit but I am sure I would be much further along if I had. This is my first build also. If you google "Outer banks 20 Bacon" you will see a great blog. There is someone on here also keen2buildagain from Austrailia. I am sure he will chime in as well. http://messing-about.com/forums/topic/8765-outer-banks-20-24-progress-thread/ I cant say enough good things about Graham and Carla. VThey have been very helpfull to a "ham and egger" like myself.
