Taco'd "a person or people that show up with one lake lice and a family of 50 and cram 3 people at a time on it with no disregard to boating rules or ethics. Usualy crap in toilets and throw shit paper in trash cans. Hang out at the boat ramp like its a swimming hole. Have zero insurance on anything they own and dont give two shits less about your property."

Itís a Panther intake and Tom at JetBoatPerformance hooked me up with a American Turbine Energizer setup for it. Essentially, the only thing that remains Panther is the suction housing. All other parts are American Turbine.

Thanks for checking out my project page.......John

Hi John,  How are things going this week on the boat or do you have to wait for the week-end?   I can hardly wait to see what you accomplish this week-end.  You've about got the bottom done.  Greg

Bottom is done Greg. But don't know what if anything I'll get done this weekend other than maybe getting flipped upright.

John,  How much time do you think you've worked on just the bottom?  A couple of weeks off and on?  Not bad for doing it in your spare time and on week-ends, not to mention the weather.  Great job!!!  Greg

Just the bottom? Hmmm, that is a good question. I have way more time in the fiberglass/epoxy work on the transom and cap (not to mention all the stupid holes) so I guess when you set back and think about it, 3 or 4 weekends is about it for the bottom. Very rarely do I get an opportunity to work on it during the week.

As far as the weather, yah, it suxs again. 40 sumthin degrees, light mist, blowing wind and fog'd in. God I love it up here.........

Oh well, here is a side and top shot so you can see where I stopped the speedcoat. I know, way too far back considering it's a Chevy and it's got to move my fat butt (and it's just a Panther)....... :mrgreen:

John,  Darn nice job!  I hope I can do half as well when I get down to do mine.  We've turned cool here too but the sun is shinning.  :)

We dodged a big storm today. Looking at the satilite (sp?) we would have gotten our butts handed to us. They were talking heavy rains and 70mph winds. Thankfully it stalled off the coast and is headed toward Northern BC/Southern Alaska

Hope it misses you Rebel

Yup, the bottom is done and setting on the cart with some super soft carpet to cushion.

Here it is with the DP48LF as a sealer. Next stop is some Rage Gold to smooth it out and then lots of 2K primer to make it puuuurdy.








Gonna let it cook for a few days and then start smoothing it out.

Wish I had been there to watch you flip it over.  Did you take any pics?  Maybe one of these days when you have time you can sit down and do a start to finish thread so all the steps are there and a list of the products you used and in what order.  Fine work there John,

You know I didnt take any pictures. All it reallys takes is two lift points, some rope & a ton of beer to ease the nerves........

Sure, I can do the product list. What I cant do is the cost ($$$) to buy the products cuz Jan might find out and she'll try to use that as excuse as to why we've eaten Kraft Macs & Cheese everyday for the last 2 months...........

:mad:  I was scuffin the epoxy sealer down to get ready to spray some 2K primer when I caught out of the corner of my eye what looked like a crack!

Ground it down and found what almost looked like an air bubble in the glass.



Layed it back and wiped it down good with some acetone. Damn I hate that stuff. It'll find any knick, cut and sratch in your hands and burnt he crap out of you. I guess I could wear gloves but that might get in the way of my beer drinking.

Did a Wet Out with some West Systems epoxy and then followed up with some strands of glass buried in another coat of West Systems.

Scuffed that down and it' looks good now. Hope it never comes back.......









Gonna squirt some DP48LF to seal it off and then I'll lay some 2K primer over everything to start to blocking......stay tuned.

Don't you just hate it when that happens?  Well, one of these days I'll be doing what you have already done and what you are starting to do.  Who knows what all I'll find.  I did find out that SOMEONE had completely change the way the fuel tanks are mounted and it's ALL wrong..  Thanks to John Miller for his information.

You're doing a fine job there John!!  Keep up the good work and keep the photos coming.

At least you found it before you put top coat down and then have something happen  ;D


Were you doing some spray gun pattern tests on the paper along the side of the boat  ???  ;D

Looking Good  ;)   ...and is that a lake I see in the back ground???   :o  I'm so jelous now  ;D

Ya, when I was spraying my last coat of epoxy the gun started spitting a bit so I was trying to get it settled out. Not quite sure what happened as it cleared out really quick.

The water in the background is Dyes Inlet here in Silverdale. I love it out there but it is saltwater so I can't talk any of my buddies to run there boats there.

FYI, be carefull with that sh!t. It sits in and then stays in your lungs while it eats them slowly away.

Thanks Hotrod. I agree, that is some nasty ass stuff. Thanks for the tip and I'll keep that respirator handy like (though hopefully, I'm done with the acetone)

Looking REALLY good.

Thanks Undone but you wouldnt have thought so last Saturday.  I washed it down, masked it off, tacked it once and went to my bag of white rags that I have to wipe some precleaner on. Unfortunately, I was out so I went and grabbed what I "thought" was a clean one. Wiped the boat down with that and then tacked it one more time.

Mixed up some 2K primer and started laying that on....... WTF :o

Everywhere I sprayed I could see the wipe marks from the cleaner. Must have not been as clean of a rag as I thought >:(

What a stinking mess.  After I got done throwing tools, drinking all the beer I could find and bitching at anything I could think of I closed the door to the shop and walked away.

Here's a pic of what it looked like. WARNING, not for the weak at heart.....



Got up the next morning and wet sanded it down smooth again, wiped it down with nice clean paper towels as recommended by a number of folks and sprayed on a new batch of 2K. Yahoo! smooth as a babys butt...  Let's hope that's as bad as it gets. I'm just thankful I made that mistake when I was just squirting primer and not the clear coat...
