    Making your own thickened resin putties is the worst. There’s premixed structural putties that you can just add catalyst too, they’re a ton easier to work with. I’ve been using fiberlay Structural Putty for filling holes in foam core on my Whaler then glassing over. For larger projects like...

    Deckhand cord wrap questions

    I’m just a hobby builder, not a pro. Tady blank is a jig stick at 9’, over 1” at the buttAtwood 1/16 , sand blank and a quick spray of 3m adhesive. In all honesty, not sure how much it helps but I think it keeps it from sliding while I’m winding it on, just helps keep it packed tight.

    What lb thrust trolling motor 14' aluminum?

    I use a 12v 55lb thrust on my 16 whaler. We get plenty of wind and tidal current out on the delta where I use it and it moves me around fine, should be plenty of thrust for a 14 aluminum.

    Nice upgrade. I'd put the dc panel closer to the access door so its visible and immediately accessible. Contorting your body and reaching into spaces isn't as easy to do on the water as it is in the driveway. If you have space, consider adding a tackle storage locker. They help a ton in...
