  1. I dug all the rotten wood out and just hit it with the penetrating to seal the good wood. I thought the fix wood could be used in a project like this. What type of solid wood be good to use for this and how to install the wood after I cut it to shape. Epoxy it in and with stainless screws to anchor it. I guess I would run screws all the way through it to anchor it to the the good wood. I would drill it so not to split the wood. Hmmm I thought this Fixwood from Total Boat epoxy putty would do the job and be strong if I gave it something to anchor to. Has anyone used the Fixwood from Total Boat???????????????????
  2. Now I plan to use Fixwood to fill the area back in and sand etc to make it blend in with the edge. My question is would it be a good idea to put three or four screws across the back edge to give the Fixwood something to grab onto? It's smooth now with the epoxy on it. They don't have to be long screws maybe 1 inch stainless. Anyone use Fixwood from Total Boat. The is a Core Sound 17 and has a bad spot just out under the edge of the splash rail. What do you think guys?
  3. Thanks for all the photos. I plan to use the tent and umbrella idea too for camping on my new CS-17. The umbrellas have side windows too to let the air flow through. They would nice to get out of the sun aswell. I found them on the net and are not high priced.
  4. This will be nice to watch over time and I'm sure people will use it.
  5. Yes I have seen the Unbrella idea and might go that way for camping or just to get out of the sun for a bit. Ive seen a small pop up tent too for camping. I will be camping and exploring the southwest coast of Florida when I get this boat going. No one has come up with one for the stern of the boat like I have seen on SeaPeal 21 boats.
  6. I also have the Honda 2.5hp that came with the boat so I guess I could take that along too for backup. But it would take up a little room. I do like the idea of the electric with low noise. Will see what I do this summer. I noticed looking at the socket base for the mizzen on this boat is seems to be tilted back just a little. Im not sure if that is normal for the build or when in the water it will look a little different.
  7. Im going to have two Deck Lifts installed for the sailboat and for Kayak and could be used for other boats aswell in the future. https://decoboatlift.com/gallery/deck-lifts/ It will make it real easy to use the boats and kayaks and clean them etc.
  8. Im going to install new Fun pads instead of old style boat lift. You can use them for more things, kayaks, boats etc and able to walk all the way around your boat, kayak, jetski etc all on a large deck that goes up and down. You can change for your tide changes too. Many more uses then with standard boat lift. You can lower down with remote and float boat or kayaks onto the large pad.
  9. Travel 1103 Torqeedo electric motor do I need the long shaft or is the short enough?
  10. Im going to be using this motor and batteries and solar panel charger for my travels on the south west coast of Florida island sailing shallow waters and electric when I want it. Down the south west coast of Florida exploring. Will be posting on my Youtube Channel. Getting things ready for this year after winter.
  11. Looks like I changed my mind and going to use the boat lift for the sailboat after I have it repaired later this year and have the wrap around walkway for it too for easy access to the boat. I will use the Davits only for service work if I need to bring the sailboat up to the ground and work on if for some reason. The boat lift people should know a way to use them after the cables have to be replaced anyway on the davits. and how to properly use the bridals I have too. The boat lift will make things easy for the use of the sailboat.
  12. Im changing my plan and looks like I will put the Core Sound 17 on the boat lift once I get the bottom part of the lift rebuilt later this year. Ive decided I will just use the Davits to lift it for service if needed in the future. Im sure the boat lift company will figure something out when they replace the cables on the davits aswell. But mainly the davits will be used to lift for service and nothing else. The boat lift has no cover so mast are no problem either.Centerboard will just be cranked up and will slide right on the trunks on the lift. It should make things easy. Im going to have a new Lifting Deck style lift system for sailboat and kayaks and other things can be added aswell.
  13. I have a Honda 2.5 that came with it but Im looking to buy and Torqeedo and 1103 electric and go all electric with also a extra two batteries for backup and larger range plus large fold out solar panels to charge the batteries while camping and staying on islands and beaches I explore in south west florida to the everglades and ten thousand islands. Don't have to worry about finding fuel which is great and no gas on board. The high cost of fuel isn't going down anytime soon either and I won't care. I see so many motor boats here on the water not going out because they don't want to pay the high price for fuel. I don't want to be in that way living on the water with a lift behind my home on the water. Seems a waste and Im going another way to get around the dumb fuel prices.
  14. The winch cleat in the bow nose seems to be strong and backed up. The large cleat on the top deck not sure how much wood is there either. I have a insert board for one side where I can lay down and could make one for the other side of the trunk aswell.
