teer 21,

I have been following the thread. I was hoping to save my work for the winter. Pm me if you go with poly or aluminum for tanks and let me know what your plans are for the floor. I keep going back and forth with both.

Not sure how I missed this thread. I have a 20' Roamer I rebuilt a few years ago. I had a 92 gallon tank built by 'Grillman' grills in New Bern, NC (they do some boat tanks as well). Very happy with it. I don't know if I have any pics of the tank, lost the phone with most of the rebuild pics.

Pic below after the rebuild but before the repower (I have an F250XB on it now).

Default Aaand we are back

Well now that hunting season has come
and gone, Ive been struggling to play catch upon the boat working day and night even if just an hour or so. She was pretty much put on hold for the past couple
month. Anyways, Iíve got her inside now, transom has been stripped and ground. Also ground/in the process of grinding a 8-10Ē tabbing area all around the bilge area. Anyone have any input on when youíve ground down to the good stuff? I know itís supposed to be pinkish more or less, but Iím just wondering if thereís a general rule of thumb. Another addition is a fishbox for the bow, Iím thinking of doing away with part of the keel stringer (height wise) and also the two bulk head pieces in front of the tank and extending the box up into the bow almost to the anchor locker. Thoughts? Good idea? Stupid idea?
Final thought, grinding in the corners, having a difficult time maneuver and getting it all, I posted a couple pics, any tips?

Generally you're looking for uniform-colored clean pink glass. If you uncover any voids they need to be ground all the way out and backfilled with thickened resin before you continue. Can't comment on the keel stringer since I don't know what they look like on that hull. Removing bulkheads is generally a bad idea as they are most certainly structural. I actually added a few in my Mako.

For corner grinding, get one of these. I have killed one already but they are indispensable for tight applications.

For pics, I use Imgur. Resize with whatever app you want on phone then upload to Imgur mobile. Then post BBC link on laptop.

Sharpest thank you for the intel, I will be hitting the ground running again on Saturday when im home. Naturally now that I have time to work on the boat my job sends me to Florida Maybe Iíll get lucky and score some cheap parts down here. Still looking for a porta bracket. Side note, if I could get the dang pics to load I could show you the fish box Iím thinking of. What it would do is essentially move the bulkhead location, not eliminate it. In reality there would be an additional bulkhead from both ends of the box.

Also the grinding will continue. Hopefully it will be sunny and she can move outside for the day

Finally got pics to load. Transom is just about ready to roll, just waiting on materials to arrive. The shot of the bow is what Iím thinking for the fishbox area

Have you started on your fish box yet? I'm curious how you're going to lay it out.

TopTeer I have not began messing with the fish box as of yet, been focused on transom work at the moment. ill be sure to post something when I have a few ideas to get some opinions.

The transom is ground down as is all the area in between the stringers through out the boat. All the Coosa and VE came in. Iíve made a template out of some Corning foam for the transom and am going to cut out my pieces. Iím going with two pieces of 3/4Ē Coosa for the transom. This is where Iím stalled at because I donít want to mess it up. Iím thinking of putting two layers of 1708 on the existing skin to beef it up a little. Each layer would be mat side down. The two pieces of Coosa I plan on laminating together outside the boat and then glueing in place with a VE and cabosil paste. After which I will use 2x4 and clamp everything in place. The next step will be apply fillet around all edges and tab everything in with 3-4 layers starting 12Ē wide and getting smaller. What does everyone think about that plan so far? I wonít put the waxed VE on until Iíve tied the knees in and floor. Not sure how thatíll work, but I donít know what else to do. The whole waxed vs unwaxed thing is new to me. Anyways if anyone has any input let me know. In particular Iíd like some criticism on the laminating process. I want to do this right so it will last

Alright Iíve got the pieces for the transom ready to roll, as far as laminating them together would I be better off going with a couple pieces of glass and then fully encapsulating with glassorshoukd I simply make a cabosil paste and press it together?

You don't need any mat between the cores. I would just use thickened resin but I strongly believe in using some milled fiber and chopped strand in it for all structural applications. Use a notched trowel to spread it evenly and stack as much heavy shit as you can find on top of them once they are joined.

I appreciate the support guys, it is a lot of work and thereís been a lot of late nights, but honestly Iím having a blast. No progress today due to the weather deciding to get cold again. Iíll be back at it later in the week when it warms up.

Slickcav that box in the photo is actually in a wellcraft v20 that a buddy of mine rebuilt. I havenít quite nailed down how Iím going to make one work yet. Iíll post about it when I do

I hope Iím not robbing your thread here, but this is the exact boat Iíve been looking at restoring myself. Iíve never done a restore and Iíve tried to price it out but itís tough. Teer, would you pm me and let me know what you expect to spend minus the motor? And for everyone else, what does a typical 21íish boat cost to get the deck, stringers, transom completely fixed up? This is a hard question so idk if Iíll get a good answer but worth a shot!

Also, Iím subbed to this thread, I canít wait to see what you do with it and maybe one day Iíll see ya out on the Chesapeake! Iím a commercial crabber and go all over so who knows!
