  1. Nice One !! That looks great
  2. Wow that's more than i would have thought nice ...
  3. As always looking very good Lotus. Out of interest what is your head height in the cabin ?
  4. 😵😵😵 Sanding sanding sanding. I feel your pain. Still it does look bloody good.
  5. Wow !!! That looks outstanding congrats there Smccormick
  6. I have no problem on a strait run, the issues start with me when going around a sharp curve like were a Carlin meets a frame when under the boat on your back with your face three inch's from the frame. They tend to get a bit messy
  7. I like it ... Have to try that out as like you i am not a real fan of sanding
  8. Bee doing a little more on the OC20-B dry fitting the gunwhales, decks and fore deck. made some hatches and am generally just beavering away at it. I have a little bit of concern over the profile on the fore deck but i think if i remove it and cut away a little more on the shear right up by the bow it should sort itself out. My wife say's i am just over thinking it but i am sure there is a little and i mean little run of. The first second and third pictures show it. The forth is my new helper sleeping on the job
  9. Looks like you are off and running. Looks great and i gotta love the chair for kicking back and viewing the days work
  10. Well after a rather long break from boat building ( I was going rather fibreglass crazy 🤣) also had a few things around the house to tend to i am back on the OC 20B . After a good dusting it was back into the bilge to finish out glassing the interior. Also i have cut the shear clamp back to allow the fordeck and gunwhales to go on and am starting to think about foaming in under the deck so as to get it in and myself alot more comfortable when working in there. Anyone know of a good product for a liquid foam? it is a first for me. Personally i am thrilled to be out of the bilge. Next task is gonna be a right good sanding of the bulwarks before priming. Then a trip to New Orleans to pickup the last of the ply for deck, fishbox and combings ETC.
  11. Hey dale what prop do run on salty? i am running the same engine and going through the prop sizing thing.

  12. Well it got wet today, only took me 6 months to do it LOL. Pics are not great as they were taken from the deck by my step mom on her phone but the general idea is there. Boat ran very well in my mind, gets a little slippery in the turn but i think that might be due to the fact that right now it has a 13" prop on it for the maiden voyage. not very good numbers due to tiny prop. 3200 rpm it planned out at 18 knots. 4000 rpm 21knots and 5200 30knots. Now i have run it for 4 or 5 hrs i will go to the motor riggers with those numbers and come back with a proper prop and will get some far better numbers i think. All in all was fun and the boat ran great
