General Discussion about the Great Alaskan / Re: Cannot post?
« Last post by Todd j on Today at 08:08:59 PM »
I tried tonight with success.  I replied with a single word and posted it.  Then I modified my post by adding the attachment.  Then I modified the post again with the narrative.  Iíve had to do this before as the text with attachment wouldnít go through.  It went just fine when I replied to my sharpening the edges post.

General Discussion about the Great Alaskan / Re: Anti fowling paint
« Last post by Todd j on Today at 07:43:01 PM »
Yesterday I covered the boat with graphite epoxy.  I used the level line as described in the plans.  I went 8Ē down from the chines at the transom.  I found out my spray rails are 1/4Ē different at the aft end.  No surprise I guess.  I looked at lots of boats and there is so many different ways to paint the bottom.  Iím not married to anything yet.  I tried to follow the rails curve and could never get it to look right.  I may try following the chines and mirror the the smile in the rails this weekend, just not sure how to handle the paint at the bow.  It is tough when a person doesnít have imagination  Iím not sure how I like it as of now.  Iím getting pretty anxious to flip.  Opinions and observations welcome!

I too am driving that way to save $500 plus in shipping costs. The company name is KSH fuel products. I went with a single tank that is 8 feet long, 3 baffles, 3/16 5052 aluminum124 gallons. The cost was right around $1100. Still working with them on details. Looks like about 2-3 weeks out. BTW, also having a trailer built in Salt Lake City as well, metal craft trailers. Right around $6000. You might do yourself justice by looking for a nice used one. Not many used 28 foot trailers in Colorado. 🍻

I wanted to let you know I found an outfit in lake havasu that builds aluminum fuel tanks. There priced are so much better then others I checked into. Let me know if need there names, much closer then shipping from the east coast of up north. Dennis in pagosa springs

Absolutely! :) I can take a road trip and pick one up and dodge shipping potentially. I am also curious what dimensions you are ordering your tank at and what it cost you if you are interested in sharing!
