Dave, where are your fuel tanks and batteries?  My 25 is very similar to yours in cabin configuration, and the stern will have 640 with motor, kicker, and bracket, but i'd also planned to put two group 27's back there.  I'm still at a point I could probably put the batteries in footrests in front of the console and shift a bunch of weight forward.  My rear deck is raised 2".  Any suggestions based on your experience so far?

Good looking boat Dave!  Get some good use out of it this summer?

Gonna start looking for shop space this winter might try to build the sponsons when the snow starts falling.

Yeah, been out several times, some fishing, some sightseeing, caught a king and a silver trolling and got a couple small halibut.  I'm prospecting for a reliable close-in "chicken hole."  Need to fill my freezer!

 
I'm down at the stern also (you can just barely see the scupper holes in this pic), and even with the deck raised 3" above the stringers, my drain tubes are wet when people get in the aft corners of the fish deck.  The all-plastic expandable plugs from US Plastics work great.  Looking forward to seeing your sponsons!

Dave

Hey Dave ...How much weight do you figure is on the transom?  Motor + kicker + bracket?  How long is your bracket?  I think your main is running 600#, but don't know the other items...

Thanks,
Brian


Brian, main is 600#, kicker is 100#, 10" setback jackplate is about 60# and the adjustable bracket for the kicker is about 30# so almost 800# total on the transom.  I took the kicker off and only intend to use it on trips outside the bay.

I used my Graco single stage turbine HVLP rig to spray my boat, applying System III two-part epoxy primer, and tested the very limit of that equipment's capability.  It worked, but just barely.  It went a bit better with the System III LPU topcoat as you can thin it more.  Both coatings are water-reducible and water cleanup.  A two or three stage turbine would have been way better.  An airless pump would also work better.

For touch-up and a couple of small projects I rolled and tipped with a foam brush and it came out looking almost as good as the sprayed parts.

Planning to extend them via a fiberglass tube and come out the back of the sponson.

Probably very similar to how Dave did it in this discussion: http://www.fishyfish.com/boards/index.php?topic=3408.0

Hei, I tried to paint with my compressor. But it is slightly underrated and it did not work out. Now I am planning on one of the better Wagner systems, but I have no experience and will have to do some test pieces frist. My marine dealer is recommending epoxy based primer and paint and I tend to go that way. Again, no experience. I am somewhat afraid that the cleaning of the spray system will cause some trouble. Wagner advertises the pump for these paints, but reading the manual, I find some parts not suitable for aggressive thinner/ solvents. Will see....
