Outer Banks 20 #24 Progress Thread

Recommended Posts


Sacrificial keel added, hollow back stainless shaped and eye hook drilled.  Priming progress. 

 

I am not keen on drilling many many unnecessary holes for the hollow back..... Anyone  have any ideas 3m 4200?

Thank you Trev

I have been following your build as well.  

 

Not much to report here but the temperatures are going to start being in my favor for painting. That stuff is nasty in the garage. 

 

Prime, longboard sand .  Prime longboard sand  arghhhhh .   chasing the hollow spots ....  all epoxy primer 

 

I have all the confidence in the world to follow Grahams waterline location. 

 

I am thinking of at least getting one coat of bottom paint on now ( or maybe both) while she is upside down    . Is this the right approach ?  I have heard good things about petit hyrdo coat for my intended area. it is ablative and friendly to boats w/ bunks.

 

Then paint the sides. Make small adjustments w/ boot stripe later . Would I be better off w/ the bottom paint too low (under the waterline slightly )  ? I would think i could always scuff topsides a little and add bottom paint as I probably will end slightly heavier than graham designed. 

 

Always looking foward for advice. 

 

Thanks

Had to take her away from home. There was no way I was going to spray awlgrip at home.  I really wanted a sprayed finish at least on the hull sides.  The color is Awlgrip H 4368 Sea shell green

I sure hope you wanted a perfectly smooth super shiny boat!

Geez, I think the only thing I've ever owned that shiny are blades and mirrors. Really stunning, excellent work.

WOW!  You're going to have a great looking boat!

I am up top the floor stage at the moment and was wondering if you (or anyone else) could shed some light on what weight of cloth should be used to glass over the ply floor. I was thinking of using the same as the bottom and sides (12Oz) but don't want to go add any extra weight if I don't have to. Maybe if it is only for abrasion reasons,..... 6Oz?
