a cheap deslinator??

Hi Mike Just wondering if that was gas or electric heater? The reason I asked the question was the cost of an R.O. versus cost of a still,plus the simplicity of a still. 5 litre stills seem to be legal in Oz so long as they aren't used for producing anything that would attract excise. (I don't think...

a cheap deslinator??

Anyone looked into distillers.Water that is. Link:-http:// http://www.conquestinc.com/lifesaverdistiller.htm Wondering how the gas consumption would compare to running R.O.? Production is about 1 US gallon/two hours. Steve and Cheryl

Hi Mike The end result will be so worth the pain(and the shits).Every day you're on the water the build will become a distant memory. What you have done so far it's gonna be a great looking boat. Go Man Go.I'm so jealous. Steve and Cheryl

ply boats and screws

Yes Mike .The ply tore,the epoxy had good penetration into the surface of the ply.The ply was Gaboon .The resin was Systems Three. I don't think it would matter if it had screws or had the screw holes filled ,so long as there was interconnection between the veneers. Steve and Cheryl

ply boats and screws

We have been using Bote Cote with recommended filler and we have two boats.One is twelve years old (built in Cairns...
