  1. Where did you find that hardware??
  2. Oyster- Looks great. I was originally planning a sliding door on Rosie but recently decided to either go with 2 doors or one bifold. The 2 doors looks like a better way to go. Thanks for the post. Ken

    Outer Banks 26 #1

    Hi All- Here are some pics if ROSIE with her hull painted and Sapele Mahogony rails installed. The motor is sitting in its crate and the trailer should be finished in a few weeks. Hope to drag her out of the shop when the trailer arrives and mount the motor and pilot house. Still much to do but it feels like the worst of the grunt work is behind me. Off to Montana in the morining for a motorcycle trip and break from boat work. Plan to stop in on Richard Bacon in Corvalis, MT and see his OB 20. Ken

    Exceptional!! Love the beer holder.
  5. Oyster- Do you have any more build pics online? Would love to see more. Thanks. Ken
  6. Oyster- Clever. How about more pics? Maybe some more ideas to “steal”. Ken

    No Interlux Pre-Kote over epoxy?

    Try a small sample patch before giving up the plan.

    No Interlux Pre-Kote over epoxy?

    The epoxy I coated over was SYSTEM 3. It doesn’t blush like WEST so that could explain the differnence between my and Mike's result.

    I have had good luck with PreCoat and Brightsides over well cleaned and scuffed epoxy. Your resutls could be different. I just painted ROSIE’s hull with ALEXSEAL and need to paint a black boot stripe. Don’t want to buy another quart of the 2 part stuff just for the stripe and will go the BRIGHSIDES route. I will let you know if there are any problems but, I don’t expect any.

    epoxy vs titebond 3

    Walter- Not in that particular application but have used it in lots of glue ups, paddles, etc. I did have one paddle delaminate but that was the glue starved joint I mentioned. I always apply the glue to both sides of the joint and make sure there is is enough so that when it soaks into the wood, the joint is not dry. I have lashed a few SOF boats and have been very satisfied. More than one way to skin a boat..... Ken

    epoxy vs titebond 3

    I have used lots of Titebond 3 in similar situations and it has worked fine. Just be mindful of glue starved joints. That has been my only failure. Ken
  13. So, how effective was the mast? I assume there was a small sail as well.
  14. Tom- I have no experience with a boat like a Bluejacket or Outer Banks at anchor. I spent years living at anchor on a heavy steel sailboat and always thought the behavior of a boat at anchor was under discussed. A heavy boat with an all chain rode is hard to beat on the hook compared to a light weight boat on a nylon rode. Since I don't really know what to expect from my OB, any insights from the BJ community are appreciated. The reason I bring it up in this thread is I often think of a steadying sail / crane as a way to keep ROSIE well behaved on the hook. Am I over thinking this or does it make sense given your experience? Alex, thanks for checking out those nesting dingys. For what it is worth, 2 Bits was a really good design that rowed fairly well and could handle lots of weight. I also want to check out what Graham from B&B has cooked up. Ken
