  1. I need a refresher where did I see a post about installing a bow sprit for an anchor roller
  2. If you check with the manufacture just about every paint has a retarder to slow down flash in warm weather
  3. David iguess I just got lucky and found that it was a short shaft
  4. David i found a 4hp tohatsu before I even got delivery of my boat I didn’t know anything about short shaft or long shaft the price was right turns out it was a short shaft so I just built the motor well to suit that engine
  5. I also did the motor well but I can’t show you a current pic the boat is tarped and ready to paint but you can check out Alan’s build videos he did one for his boat
  6. Dnjost hello ! mark rendelman here I am building a cs. 20 mklll hull #24 I have made all the mods that you have mentioned I don’t know if that makes me more qualified than Amos but I did make them
  7. Don i know what your going thru but I think I found the best solution for me iam painting my cs with devthane 379 using 379/359h hardner I believe it’s close to the Same two part as 374 both are 2 part epoxy I tried acetone as a thinner it’s to fast in warm weather I got ahold of the paint dealer he said that I should use devoe t17 thinner this is made specifically for devthane paints to slow down the flash off time to allow the paint to flow out I thin x 20% or a count of 5 or 6 count dripping off the paint stick, also I have the best results with a solvent proof foam roller and then tipping it still is not without some brush marks but it seems to give the best results hope this will lead to some peace of mind by the way you will have to sand the hull down so as to remove the brush marks already there 400 grit wet/dry should do the trick quick enough and give good bite for the new paint. ps as much as I tried you can not do this in one coat let the paint cure at least 3days before sanding should give really good coverage 3coats
  8. Ok thanks went to harbor freight tool and found one similar to the one shown worked great 29.99 fair price
  9. Hello everyone its been a while since my last post I have since put my masts together and now in the process of installing the sail track I need some help those ss rivets are a real pain in the stern I have just destroyed my heavy duty pop rivet gun and could use some ideas as to the brand to buy that will hold up to pulling these rivets any sugestions
  10. Happy Mothers Day ???to all of our partners in our hobby who without their cooperation could not be possible !
  11. Hello again for the keel strip I used 1/2 round 3/4wide brass
  12. Samantha don’t sweat cutting the trunk opening drill a hole in the center then you can use a hand router with a bushing this will also round over the edge.
  13. Samantha also living in Washington state I have to worry about those also if you use the bailers you could put screens over the bailers.
  14. Yea high everyone i built a roller tray with nine rollers and placed it down the center line of the trailer that I had retrofit to fit this boat the boat keel makes full contact from about bulkhead 1 to just forward of the motor well also installed bunk pads to keep her steady
  15. Who built your wishbone sprits and how do you like them over the stock straight spirits
  16. Alt 12 mark rendelman here hull#24( aka Barbara Kay) I purchased a set of plans to help with construction because I wanted to make the solid wood out of something other than pine they are quite helpful since they are full size templates when I built my boat i chose to raise the seat tops because I have just the opposite of you iam 5’6 .if you call Alan at the shop he can look up the height from seat top to roof on his cad drawings as for the finger joints they can be re placed with normal scarf join If lall you have is a jig saw to cut out the parts it will make this build very challenging you should at least have a table saw
  17. HAPPY HOLIDAY ?one and all and sail on️ mark rendelman ??
  18. Yea and you got everyone hook line and sinker
  19. Ok thank you for your advice I will ponder the problem for a while I have plenty of time to work this out and will take all results into consideration, keep them coming
  20. Supposed I could put the light on the mizzenmast instead
  21. Yes it will be a 360 degree white anchor light on the main
  22. The mast head float is one of those things I think you need to have if you mainly sail single handed But this now has me re thinking the 360 degree masthead light I had planned to mount it directly to the wood plug at the top of the mast.now if I. Install this I need to figure out how to mount the lightl any thoughts on this
  23. Update build hull #24 at long last I have chosen a name for hull#24 from this time forward she will be affectionately know as The Barbara Kay after my wife and best friend of 55 years. Without her support this could not have happened
