Deck Veener - Posted: 15th Aug 2017
Hi All
After sanding the deck, I vanished with two coats that was OK.
A bit of light sanding between coats and added another coat.
Check it the next day and a lot of section on the bow the veneer had lifted !!!
The stern section is OK.
It's the outer veneer and it's all one piece, used the same glue.
Very disappointed!!!!

Bad case of Tasmanian Devil ? 😡
My sympathies 😭😭
Response by canabus on the 15th Aug 2017
Hi All
I used the same glue on the stern over filler, no problem.
It's not the Tassie Devil, they are all noise, it's my mate's Tassie Tiger!!!

Hi Canabus
Still not sure what Type of glue this is so difficult to give help on repair.
I suspect the filler may have been nearer the edge at the front, (prow) allowing the varnish to get into the joint. If it has delaminated perhaps you can ease the rest off and reapply or make a new piece.
Out of interest what type of glue is Tassie Tiger?

Deck Planking - Posted: 3rd Aug 2017
Hi Guys
Well I installed the aft deck and started planking.
The outer trim planking is in two pieces with a joint behind the windscreen because my mate gave me the veneer for free.
The idea is to hide the joints with black waterproof sandpaper used for the nonslip pieces shown on the plan.

Hi All
Dry fitted the stern deck and as it was a warm winters day spray undercoated the bottom and sides.

SG&K 1920 Gentlemans Runabout Mk2 - Posted: 20th Jun 2017
Hi All
I have started my redesigned runabout by increasing the length to 860mm. The motor and ESC will move to under the removal dash for better weight balance. Increase the engine hatch to get the Lipo battery, receiver and servo into. This will be hidden by the deck planking and the original hatch size will get it back to scale look. Brushless motor 3639-1100kv,3S battery, 60A car ESC and 37mm 3 blade prop.

Hi All
Made up a few handles and glue onto the 10mm magnets to get into the stern of the boat, also to get the magnets back out.

These are working great!!!!!

Hi Canabus
I am watching your boat building with hot interest
I am building Chris Craft Riva from scratch so your boat is similar.
Good luck
Alan

Hi All
The stern is finally covered in with the help of my magnet handle clamps.
Fibreglass resin, filled and sanded.
Spray putty/primer undercoated.
