Random Boat Parts For Sale / WANTED: DRIVELINE COVER
« on: December 29, 2010, 10:13:11 AM »
Looking for a driveline cover.....let me know what you have, length and how much you want for it

I hope you put some support under that hull before removing the stringers....otherwise your hull could lose it shape a bit...   ;D

Hulls / Re: rail kit questions?
« on: February 15, 2010, 05:37:36 PM »
It would be easy to take this the wrong way, but here goes..

I see no value in adding a rail kit to your hull other than it's easier to take the motor in and out...Four point mounts are stupid strong, as strong or stronger than rails IMHO. there will literally be nothing for the rail kit to tie to for added strength, I would just build some backing plates from aluminum for the existing four points.

I really am serious that I mean this in the most positive way possible... :thumbup:


I would suggest going with the rail kit. I did for my 460 Ford, easier to get the engine out and I would be willing to bet way stronger than a standard 4 point.  Angle aluminum is easy to do yourself, motor plates well thats another story......  Plus you can always take the motor rails out if you sell the boat or they will be a selling point if you ever get rid of it

my project has been painted, how can i get it back down to the original gel without making it look like shiz?

Don't use 60 Grit or you will tear your shit up, unless you have paint on it a 1/4" thick...... use a DA and start with something like an 100 and make sure you are just taking up paint.

If you put a bunch of deep scratches in the gel you can forget about saving the original gel.....unless you want to buff out scratches for the next year

Well I started spraying the inside of the boat with black & white Zoletone. It looks really good in person!  ;D

What is Zoletone? And how well does it lay down?

Easy there Turbo! LOL, I merely made suggestions as well.  :thumbup:

The Bondo will help filet the corners, but will literally have no added strength as opposed to glass fibers and resin., just a different perspective. ;)


Don't use either...kitty hair will take a year to sand..... Use a deck and hull putty for the deep areas and a poly fair (fairing compound) for the small scratches and cracks, it sands real easy and you can a nice smooth finish

Finishing resin is typically used as a final coat and laminating resin, well that is used for wetting out matte or cloth for structural repairs.

If you are going to use finishing resin you will need to determine whether it is a sandable variety (with wax) or without and then it can simply be buffed. People like to use surfboard resin because it fries nice and clear...not cloudy and brown like that Bondo crap...  be prepared to spend some money on finishing resin as it is not cheap

Use Polyester as well, Epoxy is simply to expensive to be using on a boat
