Well it depends on who I can talk into it, poor Nick is still trying to recover his hearing from the Flyer and Dan is still in training, always looking for qualified apprentice ( Qualified means they work free)!


I'm ready to fly!

Let me know when.


Any time you're ready, give me a call.

Curious... what do you use for your adhesive sealant? I'm assuming that this is on the bottom? Mine is still clecoed in place. I was thinking of going with Sikaflex 291, but haven't done it yet.


Rick,
I use Loctite PL Marine Fast Cure Adhesive. Both are types of Polyurethane, the Loctite is a Polyether, I don't know if the Sikaflex is Polyether or Polyester, they don't specify.

just thowing it out there Ray, could a modified buck bar be worth having for this, just a thought......

I have a somewhat similar bar (and about ten others at this point), when it's tight and slippery it's still tricky B)
