    A A plastic or pvc angle will work just the same , or even better because it is easier to trim . I removed the strakes from the mold and tacked them to the hull at about 24hr later. At that time the epoxy fill is still very flexible to bent , and at front there is some bent to do. So they cured and hardened following the bent of the boat . After another 24 hr. I removed the screws , glued them with thickened epoxey and re screwed the screws in there original holes . This was a very straightforward job ! Hope this will help 🙂

    Riggs, I used a very simple method to build the lifting strakes. It is detailed in my OC20 tread at pg.6 BTW nice work on your OC20b

    Fast nice work !! With the weight of that 60 hp I will highly recommend installing a set of smart tabs On my marissa (with suzuki 60 )I put the console 1.5 foot forward ( that should have helped ) and still needed those tabs . The smart tabs made a huge difference and only than I can say that the boat is perfectly balanced

    Thanks Iasal for your thoughts, all noted . Will tackle this detail when the console is fully equipped with steering and instruments because this will have a totally different look than. Time for some pipe work . Bow railing almost ready, next will be some hand grip railing at stern .

    Looks like the sliding door is too plain ! Any ideas ? Still need to do some trimmings around the acrylic door to even the gap
