  • How many gallons of foam solution? I see two gallons there (one part resin . one part catalyst).

    Looks good and gets my seal of approval. :-)

    I especially like the fillet from the hull to the floor edges. The carpet (if using carpet) will look great at that joint, as it rolls down the side and onto the floor, across that smooth transition angle.

    The outer stringer angle(s) are just as they should be.

    My understanding of the origin of the foam (the requirement, not the location) is a little different but that can be another thread discussion.

    It's coming together nicely.

      Regarding the foam, I bought two 2-gallon kits and used over one kit, then trimmed off quite a bit.

      Yes, I’ll be using carpet and that’s why I built the fillet… to have a strong and smooth transition. I sure hope this floor never has to come out because it is very solidly attached and would be a giant PITA to remove. The original floor was attached with nails, glue and a thin strip of fiberglass along the edges. It came out easily.

      I am interested in the foam origin. I was referring to this old marketing piece. I’m guessing there is more to the story and probably a regulatory angle as well.

        • after all the work you’ve put in I’d be inclined to have it float over not putting in some foam

          • The 1.5:1 powerslot transmission is now rebuilt. Using Wouter’s thread and the manual as reference, all clutches, gaskets, o-rings, seals and steel sealing rings have been replaced. Without Wouter’s thread, I might not have attempted the rebuild, and there were a few parts in the kit I bought that Wouter didn’t use, so the manual was very useful to do a complete restoration.

            New hoses and some paint followed. A pressure test (using the most ghetto contraption I could think of to spin the transmission… yes, that’s a buffer, a socket, a nut and an old piece of hose) indicated good pressure.

            The bilge got a quick coat of epoxy based paint.

                    • Update:

                      The engine is leveled, aligned within 1/1000” and anchored. The strut required some minor shimming to get the shaft in the shaft log without contact. This was an iterative process. Lesson learned: confirm everything is good twice before putting on silicone.

                      Motor and trans mounts are bolted though horizontally and lag screwed vertically.

                      Had to build a new mount for the upgraded steering clamp. I think the strut and rudder may have been replaced with aftermarket parts at some point as nothing went together quite like you would think it would. Rudder port has new packing.

                      Shaft seal is in place and new coupler installed.

                      Exhaust hoses and tips are new. Mufflers were sanded to check for cracks and then painted and installed.

                      Floor has been sanded (just to get it to hold carpet glue and to smooth where there were resin drips) and is ready for carpet.

                      Platform underside got painted black and is ready to install.

                        New bracket and clamp. Pretty simple.

                        • Fantastic work! Can't wait to see it with the deck on it!

                          Comment


                          • Hopefully the platform mounting is a slight upgrade to factory. Originally this was held on by 5 lag screws through the transom into the plywood core and 2 into the ends of the stringers.

                            It is now bolted through with aluminum backing plates. Compared to modern boats, it still feels pretty sketch, but no way it’s not an improvement.

                            The outside platform fasteners are eye bolts to allow a tie down strap to the trailer, which apparently wasn’t a thing in 1980.

                            Many terrifying acts of drilling through gel coat and enlarging holes I drilled previously (all of which “shrink” when gelcoated) are complete. Next is carpet and then the deck (and more drilling).

                              • This might be my favorite thread ever... your work looks great, and the continual updates are addicting.

                                You might be excited to reach the end, but [selfishly] I'm not.... I don't want this to end.... haha... other than maybe final pics, but you get it.
