General Discussion Tolman Skiffs / Re: Rod holders
« Last post by GS on July 14, 2017, 08:58:44 AM »
Those Amarine 316 stainless steel rod holders I ordered off of Oyster's link just came in and the quality is better than I expected for $15.50 a piece. Definitely not the top of the line but if they really are 316 then they will be worth it. The top flange is thicker than I thought and the weld to the tube looks really good and again better than I expected.

I haven;t tried that specific roller but all the nap style rollers I have tried left little peices of fuzz.  That's why I switched to the the foam style.  The thicker foam rollers were prone to leaving air bubbles and they also retained a lot of epoxy which started to kick in the roller before I completed the job.  Using the thinner foam roller seemed to eliminate this issue.
I had the same experience with the thicker foam rollers. When the epoxy started to kick, the rollers desintagrate...much worse than the fuzz from nap rollers. Started using the thin rollers and had much better results.

Hei,
Zip ties for me. Bought the ones with a metal spring in the locking mechanism. Drilled some extra holes when one tie was not enough. Worked well. Started with smaller ties but went bigger towards the bow.
And fast. And adjustable.

I put a 60hp Etec on my widebody center console.  I'm very pleased with the power supply.  It's a good combo for the hull.  With the 15" prop I can get up to 31 mph empty and 28 mph with five adults aboard.  Plus, I bought the motor over the winter when Evinrude had an extended 10 year warranty on any new engine bought prior to March 31. 

I really wanted to put a 70hp Yamaha on this boat, but when I got the Etec price and found out about the warranty, I chose it instead.  The best thing about the etec is how quiet it is, yet it still has that two stroke outboard sound that always makes me think back to my younger days going fishing with Gramp.

Lots of smaller boats fish just outside the Ilwaco channel. Usually a bit calmer along Sand Island and a short run back in if the weather turns bad. The fish have to go by someplace.
I've only been out of Chinook once, so I'm not much help about launching there.

Does anyone use the rollers that Renn recommended, it's the Wooster R245-9 and its for adhesives? It worked great for us and we had to do very little fairing.

We used zip ties and they worked great, just don't get them to tight for the initial opening up, they are easy to tighten up later. I would get some help to bend up the bow, we blew that, had to cut the ties and redo it. It took three of us to bend it together and get it right.
