Have some new questions though, please forgive some of my boating terms
I had played with the idea of squaring off the back just a bit to provide a good place to mount a transducer outside the boat. I've about given up on this idea, but was curious, why do they all come to a point in the back? Better performance? Looks better? Easier to build? just wondering
After reading some of Ron's post I'm kicking around the idea of trying to come up with a seat mount that can be adjusted front to back and up and down. I may keep the seat removable so it would just need to go up and down. Any ideas?
I had talked this over with Ron awhile back, and while he said it wasn't needed still think I like the idea for my piece of mind. At the back of the boat, once the hull has been completely glassed and sealed, Think I'm gonna take a block, 1/4 to 1/2 thick couple of inches or so long and goopy it to the hull for a wear strip. I plan on tapering all the edges so there is nothing to hang on, just a little bump. When it wears down to much I can sand it off and replace it, if I decide I don't like it I can just sand it off. I know me and there will be times when the boat gets drug around by the nose and I would rather tear up something meant to be torn, than have to repair something. My biggest question on this is what kind of wood to use. I plan to seal it like the rest of the boat but by it's purpose it will get wet. Cedar would do better with water, but oak would wear better, but it's also bad about splitting so how would that affect it being glued to the hull? Any thoughts?
I ordered graphite to do the bottom with, but was wondering how much you put in the epoxy. I could have swore I saw that mentioned somewhere but I can't find it.
