Like the way your hiding your name inside of the hull.
ha, ya, that was just some epoxy resin I was testing out, so it will be covered later. Although I'll probably do something more permanent later. Once I get all the sides on, I'm going to use some fiberglass cloth on any seam where the hull is epoxied to the skeleton. I was suggested to not Fiberglass the outside, and to use epoxy resin only on the outside. I'll then begin the difficult task of figuering out the engine mounts, prop cage mounts, radio box, linkages, and fuel tanks.
I got some questions for you Mr Cajun Gator, about your building methods
1. Do you use any fiberglass on the outsides of your hulls/ other protection?
No... I use a chem-guard epoxy paint then top coat with paint.
2. Where to mount the fuel tanks? I was thinking about the last box area that as my name in it. Wasn't sure how high the tank has to be.
If your carb is a walbro or something like it, it more than likely has a fuel pump, built in. I place my tanks forward of the radio box, sometimes under the front deck.
3. My cg should be at 1/4 - 1/3 off the transom, correct? I'm doing a puller set-up, should this effect the cg?
Set your engine so that the prop is just front side of the last bulkhead.
4. Do you run any flotation in your hulls?
No....Just many air compartments
I'll have plenty more ?'s later. Thanks!
