RE: Aeromarine Titan build

that is one sexy boat. You'd almost have to smack anyone who said otherwise. btw, is that a gtx800 on that tunnel?

RE: The Unofficial all things Jet drive thread

well, I'm letting the epoxy do its thing, since I'm not running the boat anytime soon. It's barely tacky now. It still smells, so that means it's still not done. Tonight I put on runners and began...

RE: The Unofficial all things Jet drive thread

I did firm up, but yeah it's tacky. The funny thing is it turned blue when I mixed it. [:-]. I used the same stuff last year and it was clear. Very odd, it's Elmer resin. Tonite I picked up some good...

RE: The Unofficial all things Jet drive thread

RE: The Unofficial all things Jet drive thread

just CA glue, just make sure you get the whole seam, or it will leak. Afterwards, for good measure you could coat it in epoxy.

The trick with installing the drive is, put the two halves of the...
