  1. Not really. They seem to work sometimes, but let water in most of time. Sammy had a fix of some kind with wedges... but never got that far. I'm just plugging drains with sqishy foam while idling around. Let you know later when I get into the real ocean. 😬😬😬
  2. Well alot more has happened. Got the other deck hatch rebuilt, some other wood trim done. New rear hatch cover, doing ladt of glass work tomorrow.... And then I finally got a spot at a marina on the west coast. O'Neill's Marina by the skyway. More later...
  3. Actually here they are... 1/2" starboard blocks glued to transom, blank carved sanded and fitted, gluded and screwed, silicone the gaps ... Okay Sammy, ready for you to test at the inlet...πŸŒŠπŸŒŠπŸŒŠπŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ™ˆ
  4. Well all went well until i went to try it out... wind was blowing 15/20... white caps on lake, foot or so, blowing right into ramp. Swamp time and a new lesson learned. Soooooo, here's an attempt to add some courage of a following sea... if i happen to get there...

  13. WOW that brings back memories... way back when .. remember all when mine froze and i cut out the whole side to dig out foam and reset... Go back and search my old posts...
  14. Chemical concepts CCA6105. Its $37+ for stuff. $.70 for extra mixing tubes. And the delivery gun was 30+ also... but supposedly universal with different types. I found out about it from king starboard site, which shared youtube test from chemical concepts. The maker.
  15. Thats what the 8" inspection hatch is for the lower bolts... the upper ones are through the upper brace. I'm gonna glass it all down. Im only foaming the outside compartments. Wouldn't you know when I want to glass temperature goes down to 60's...
