Sean,

I know, I'm visiting his website and his forum at least twice a day. But I'm anxiously waiting for my own plans. Anne send them out 8 days ago. Good luck with your built!!! In the meantime I'm trying to get as much informations and ideas about Easy's as I can get.

Jochen

just finished my high build yesterday took 7 hrs to highbuild the entire boat, now i just have the ardous task of sanding it all back, i have sanded one hull now and it has come up schmick with only 23 pinholes to be filled however im thinking of buying an 8 inch fixed orbital to knock the top of everything and then going to my 6 inch ro as the first hull took 6 hrs to sand and theres an awful lot more boat to sand

What kind of highbuild primer is it Sean? What tip did you use on your spray gun?

Watching in the wings!

i used wattyl epinamel. it was cheap, great to sand and didnt mind having qcell added to turn it into spray bog, im hoping to go for a splash in about 4 weeksfor the high build 2mm was fine but for my poor mans spray bog i moved up to a 3mm

Well a big heartfelt congratulations to you Sean, you must be stoked

What a great feeling it is when they go in and what a sickening feeling it is when they are swinging in the air.

Well done

Dave

yes i must admit that i felt a bit sick as the crane lifted it, that whole wondering if i got a dodgy batch of resin, mixed it wrong etc etc, however there were no mysterious soundsand it nearly went ithout hitch, the crane driver was supposed to use a spreader bar but when he arrived didnt have one, and when he picked it up his crane was slightly off centre swinging the boat into the shed and putting a small 5 cent piece sized dent in it(however it didnt break the paint) other than that it went without hitch, it is bloody terrifying driving into a marina for the first time,i realized just how big it actually is) im going to have to find someone who can give me a few lessons i think

Good on you Sean. You need to change your profile now! She looks great. I expect you'll be doing a shake down cruise down this way soon. I'll buy in some extra sandpaper! (Maybe some beer too)
