build your own

WOW Sean, I think you have improved the design. I havent even got mine on the water yet. I am a delayed gratification junky. Warren, the guy that showed me how to make mine (he designed them as we built them in return for me giving him the offcuts which for me was a bargain), whilst I agree they wou...

back windows

Hi Guys, I have hand drawn plans of vertical sliding rear windows. If anyone is interested I can email them. My email is crew@mahnamahna.com.au. They are basic drawings but I think if you can build a cat you can make these windows.

Cheers,

Paul

topcoat

Hi Guys, originally the boat builders were not going to fair the boat themselves, they were going to pay an outside specialist fairing team to do the job but something fell through with the guys so they are doing it themselves. I would have thought fairing the hulls whilst upside down would have bee...

downlights for my targa

Hi All, here are some pics of the led light I have, it is from Osram called dot it, they are in a catalogue this week from home hardware chain for $9.95 but I am sure we only paid $8.95 but that was a year ago. They come in different colors, although it would be nicer if they didnt have the branding...

downlights for my targa

Hi Sean, At the back door (of our house) we have no motion sensing light and we use the back door as our main door, so as a cheap alternative so we could find the keyhole on dark nights, we mounted a cheap ($8 bunnings) 2 x aa battery powered 3 led light that has self adhesive mounting with a push b...

Buying on Ebay

Hi Again all, seeing as how I need to get to 5 posts I thought this one worth of a post. My wife and I run a business that sells a lot on ebay and of course we pretty much dont buy anything until we see what we can get on ebay and I thoroughly agree that ebay is definately worth a look, and I also a...

Duflex

Hi Sean and all other members of the forum. Thanks for the welcome. I realised after re reading my post that I may have inadvertantly insulted ply boat builders, not good form on a ply builders site! I hope I didnt give that impression, I just wanted to praise the lightness and strength of duflex. I...

Duflex

Hi All, I dont post here often but I should, it is an excellent forum, its a shame the forum from the designer I am building is not so active. Anyway my 10c on duflex is that it is a brilliant product. I had some unevenness in the top resin in a few panels, but this easily sands out, I would reckon ...

Antifouling Options

Hi All, I am building a 40ft cat and have just applied copper epoxy to the first hull with the intention of having a long term anti foul. My plan is to use the copper epoxy as a base coat for a new kind of anti foul called Pure Seal. If you are interested in what I am doing you can visit the website...
