  1. Like eating ice cream to fast I got brain freeze with all the information I will have to do more home work
  2. After watching a few videos on the uv-5r most say that it is illegal to transmit on marine bands gmrs and frs frequenices so how does that make it a good radio for use to go boating
  3. Their is a guy who gives you tube lessions on the uv-5r use and programming the channel is not a rubicon production this might come in handy for some who already has or intends to buy a uv-5r radio, I have been looking off and on for a radio for some and this just might fit the bill since I am not tech savvy the videos will help
  4. It's always darkest before the dawn and in this case before the repair looks like you have everything under control
  5. That’s a lot of work how much do you love this boat? I have made repairs to cracks that haven’t gotten to big by using small shims to force open the gap injecting epoxy with a syringe and needle you can get them at a feed store or farm supply then applying clamp pressure to close
  6. When I got done it was the same plane as the rest of the hull
  7. If everything else is good you can push the two panels back together and start from their with the repair is it out of the question to make a butt block and attach it to the inside hull panel or as I had to do on my boat when I dropped a lead weight onto the hull while under construction and had to fix it I made it a single side repair but in your case it can be repaired from both sides pictures show how I made the fix hope this will help if you go ahead with this yourself
  8. Having had the similar problem with auto crash (look I know it’s not a boat ) but the out come will probably be the same you will wish you had let the insurance company cover the repair because once you settle with the guy that hit you on a dollar value and get into the repair and it turns out to be c can of worms (no pun intended) your on the hook for what ever happens next not to mention the time you personally put in to make the repair and what if it can’t be saved. Take it to a boat yard and get some professional estimates that would be the way I would go about it mark p.s. It will save you a lot of headaches.
  9. I just got my 30lb masthead float and just wondered if you stuffed the cavity with aluminum foil would that be enough mass to show up on radar like a reflection ball on larger sail boats
  10. After looking at avocet video and the one on grahams carlita I chose to go with a Danforth anchor it turns out that I had one laying around from my power boat I also salvaged the bow roller and mounted it on a piece mahogany this is on center line, the anchor has about 15’ of chain also.

  12. I need a refresher where did I see a post about installing a bow sprit for an anchor roller
  13. If you check with the manufacture just about every paint has a retarder to slow down flash in warm weather
  14. David iguess I just got lucky and found that it was a short shaft
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Ok thanks went to harbor freight tool and found one similar to the one shown worked great 29.99 fair price
  20. Did you get the right shoe for that price
