Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Try Vetus Marine in Florida. That is where I got my replacement flappers.

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

I will say my exhaust system slopes up all the way to the headers and I have baffles in the mufflers that probably prevent water from surging into the engine. A straighter exhaust system without any baffles should probably use flappers. There are some metal and rubber ones out there that you might b...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

I have the Vetus exhaust tips on the Torpedo. I lost one flapper the first season, I think at the Gathering in 2015. I ordered two replacements but quickly lost another. I haven't had them on in 6 years and haven't had any problems. While I like the design of the tips, the flappers are poorly design...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

On the Zip above the water line I used filler stain, Pettit sealer, and Epifanes varnish. Some varnishes react weird on epoxy and won't dry. I had problems with System Three resin under
Epifanes varnish. Experiment on scrap with whatever you use.

Re: Torpedo Cleats, where to get?

Do a Google search for torpedo cleats. There are many examples of either antique or new. Perko makes them and are available from a variety of vendors. Probably a 3-4" cleat would suffice for mooring, just make sure that you anchor them with long screws into shears or heavy blocking. I used larger li...

Re: Hello from North Idaho!

I prefer Okoume because of the quality and ease to work with. It doesn't produce ragged edges when cut like some other plywood. If you can't find it locally, you can order it. Ordering all your wood at once will save on shipping costs. There may be suppliers in the NW.

Re: Hello from North Idaho!

Rich and I will be in Coeur D'Alene in September for the ACBS International Boat Show. Maybe we will see you there. Not bringing the Torpedo, but attending the show.
