"Based on what I have been reading the fir marine ply is not made to the same standards as the marine grade okume ply is that not true in your experience? I could certainly save some money by buying the fir ply for my Honky Dory build. "

"It wasn't intended on being a primer but it's a hell of a lot brighter on the lake than in my garage. So I think that I might tone it down a few shades. As for the Honky I didn't make any changes intentionally. As far as I know its…"

Maiden Voyage

I've mostly finished the boat. Took it out for some lake trials today, it didn't sink or do anything unexpected. Just a few more details, paint, latches, etc, but all and all ready to float. Next weekend Desolation/Gray, the water should still be up there, so hopefully I bring it back in one piece.

"That stuff is really messy, but I think you could just hit it with a heat gun and sand out the area that that it damaged. might be easier than dealing with the 5 min epoxy."

"You'll probably put a couple holes in it, but you won't sink. My main issue is when I hit a rock and expose the plywood which begins to soak up water, and I feel like I need to make an immediate repair to keep the water from soaking in.…"

"I've decided, with the consenceis of everone I've talked to to go with bulkheads. As for the bottom, I've already finished it with 3/8" i didn't buy okoume, I got the cheaper marine grade form McBeths. I don't know if…"

"Larry, I'm interested in what you think of the rigid foam bulk heads you've put in your boat. How has it held up, how did you attach them, would you do it again???"

Jimmy Emery replied to lhedrick's discussion Building for big water and looking for options.
"You've covered a lot in this post. Like my previous post explained, I have been struggling over whether of not to install bulkheads. It seems logical to me that the more flex the better. When I started building my boat I jumped in with both…"

Jimmy,

I am currently researching hatch and latch design for a decked boat as well. Before I re-invent the wheel, was wondering what folks like yourself are doing for your boats...?

Cheers,

Robb
