Re: anybody running air ride?

Junk is the last word i would use to describe the kit... To answer ur question 7, if u have the option to reinforce ur hull, do it. On the hull im building i left the reinforcing of the front where the rigging would bolt to and added more gussets and c channel to the back under the motor stand. What...

Thank you sir, it looks kinda green in the picture, its actually a semi gloss bronze so it kinda reflects the colors surrounding it a bit.. Interesting color and I really like it!

Re: 13' Palm Beach Full Deck Under Construction (PICS)

Just got a call from the powdercoater, we had sealer on the transom from before we decided to powder the hull... He was concerned about the glue... Said it never even got soft when he baked it so should be good...

Only time will tell but its good news so far

Re: 13' Palm Beach Full Deck Under Construction (PICS)

Just my opinion here, but I would reconsider powder coating the hull. I've never seen a riveted hull powder coated (although I'm sure it's been done). I've seen a few welded hulls powder coated, but they don't have to worry about the glue melting in the seams. I hate a leaky boat, and I think that'...

Re: 13' Palm Beach Full Deck Under Construction (PICS)

Be careful when you put the boat in the oven to cure that the heat does not melt the special glue on the transom May cause leaks but you can also reapply the glue after the powder coating process Rob BTW .....BAD ASS hull, that boat will go ! Yes, going to reapply to transom if needed. Have a 520 c...

Im doing air ride from Mr. Simpson, so the seat structure will be aluminum, but the cage i am doing conduit cage. There are only a handful of the supports welded into the structure. Mo...
