KB’s recent comment about his Lil Woody leads us to his new project, a Glen-L designed Tubby Tug for his daughter. These are cute little boats that I looked at in the past… I think it would be a great "father/child" project for those wanting something a little smaller than the project I bit off 🙂
KB has a nicely detailed set of web sites, and the pictures and commentary are great learning tools. I appreciated his opinions of epoxy thickening… that’s a subject that I haven’t found enough information on yet 🙂
A good rule of thumbs when mixing epoxy and silica is that if you wonder if it is thick enough – it isn’t. It will run and sag if not thick enough.
One website said to mix the epoxy and silica to a consistency of peanut butter. BUT, is that warm peanut butter or peanut butter that you just pulled out of the fridge? Is it the consistency of Skippy or Peter Pan? – October 4, 2007
KB’s planning for electric drive, so he’s fitting in here more and more.
Thanks, KB for your post and great web site! By the way, I’m well aware of those little one’s holding you to your promise to build a boat…. been there and doing that 🙂
