Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

How are you going to finish the edges of the luan? That's where all the moisture is going to get absorbed. After using contact adhesive and wrapping the edge with the vinyl covering I'm confident they will last another 40 years Im going to resin the luan like i did with the rest of the deck. Also g...

Re: Throttle handles

Rich, is your issue with the upper or lower helm? There are different controls for each at my helms. I bought new controls for the upper helm as it would have been a machining project to repair them. My lower controls seem to be fine. The next step for me is to see how many of the cables I will be ...

Re: Flybridge Core project

Excellent job!!!!Are you going to just fare the cut lines? Or are you going to fill it with epoxy first? I would recommend just using gelcoat. The color will blend after a season or 2 and you wont even know it was done.
