First boat - First Mod

Personally I used rust-oleum in a rattle can and was pleased with the results. I also used Rust-Oleum "Top Side" for the final coat. I was not going for a showroom finish so I rolled on the Top Side and went over it with a brush. If you check my link you can see the results.

First boat - First Mod

Hi ked_man, An etching primer is almost (for sure) required if you want a top coat to stick. The etching primer chemically bonds to the bare aluminum, retarding oxidation, and the top coat bonds to the primer. You can prep the existing finish in several ways. The prep will determine what the finishe...

Aero Craft 12' Mod.

Action, The sides are full of foam but could have had storage. I did not do that. The front has a large storage area. If you look close there is a parting line and that is a continuous hinge. The lid opening is the front nose piece. The front bench is still there so it was quite a large area because...

Hi Action, Thought I would send along a project that I did last summer. It is a 12' MirroCraft that was a basic model like your AeroCraft. I only cut the center seat ou and covered the front and rear bench. I tied the two (front & back with alum. angle along the top and framed in the bottom with alu...

I hope your surgery goes well and you are back in full operation mode soon. You know....There are fish out there dying of old age that have never been caught. Just something to think about. Good Luck!

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

Smelled a skunk this morning on the way to work a sure sign that spring is near. I spent a few hours this weekend pounding out the rehab of the trailer. Paint, bunks w/UHMWP skid surface, winch and assembly. I used 3/16 thick UHMWP attached to heavily spar coated 2 x 4's. I used epoxy and countersun...

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

Got some time today to work on the trailer. Cleaned it up then hit it with the wire wheel followed by a acetone wipe. Sprayed it with a rattle can or four of rust-oleum. Put new bearings and seals on the axel and put the final coat of spar on the bunk boards.

You do NOT have to have floatation in your boat. The original manufacturer my be required to but that is where it ends. The thing you will get dinged on would be if you were over the persons capacity but I think that is it. They put the floatation in so they can market it as a safe boat. If you thin...
