I'm in the middle of a project replacing the plywood floor in my aluminum bass boat and also need to change out the flotation foam beneath the floor that's waterlogged. I've read on iBoats forums that a good easy fix for changing out the foam (without getting the pour-in stuff that may require extr...

[quote]I was trying to figure out the difference in construction grade and not construction grade plywood.[/quote] LOL, well maybe I used the wrong terminology there - I don't know if it's actually called CONSTRUCTION grade. I guess what I've seen others call it is EXTERIOR grade like for buildi...

[quote]So 3/4"?[/quote] I'm going with 1/2" plywood - I think that's what was already in it and have read in other forums that it's sufficient? 3/4" would be adding even more weight, so there's also that to consider....

[quote]What kind of plywood are you using? I'd just order some 105 from amazon, I doubt you would need any thickening agent.[/quote] I bought construction grade pine from Lowe's yesterday for like $16 or $17/sheet. What is 105 plywood? I bet it's expensive right?...

re: Where to buy epoxy for use in boat deck replacement? - ThaRealBigBen
Google says that place is permanently closed. I had actually already checked West Marine's website for a BR location and the closest was in Metairie. What's funny is that there's a review on the Google Maps page from 9 months ago made by a guy I work with - I'll also go ask him and then maybe try ...

Where to buy epoxy for use in boat deck replacement? - ThaRealBigBen
Does anybody know where I can buy Marine grade Epoxy (for sealing wood prior to carpeting) in a local store? Lowe's and Home Depot seems to just have the stuff for sealing concrete and garage floors. If you want more details, read on. I just started a do-it-yourself job of replacing the old rot...

re: Ideas for insignia - ThaRealBigBen
He seems to like the second to last the best with the "spiky" font. He was wondering if you could move the t closer to the d, maybe over lap it a bit and also try a version without the skull shown in case the etcher can't do that detail. If you give your email, maybe we'll be able to show you result...

Got a friend who makes knives out of railroad ties and is now getting some etching equipment for adding names, etc. He mentioned wanting to have a personalized insignia to put on all his knives, so I'm looking for some ideas.

re: Issue over toilet paper in Houma - ThaRealBigBen
Hah, good point Hubble...I was just about to point out that it wouldn't surprise many if George W's face had been put on toilet paper, which it probably had, and now we see that it has along with Palin and others and probably noone started pointing to racism in those cases. Why? Because white peop...

Okay, so maybe you can skip the buffing up part. But can someone maybe just add King Leonidas' head looking crazy with a bubble caption saying "Tonight we dine in hell!". Nothing too detailed, just trying to joke with my brother in law....
