      I also got the axle painted with the final coat of paint I think. I am still not sure if I want it to be black or white. anyway that's all for today.

        I'd keep all the trailer running gear black. If you have the Gluvit and feel like slappin' some more on go ahead but I don't think it's necessary.

            Thanks EZ for the reply. I bought the large can of gluvit and have some left so I may go ahead and use it. thanks Cool it is nice to go out and see a nice clean boat. now if I could find a bunch of pool noodles on sale it would be great. I was thinking about the flooring next but I guess it would be smarter to do the outside of the boat while it is still empty and light enough to flip over duh.

              Check dollar stores for pool noodles. If you ask the manager they may be able to give you a price break on a bunch, as they are now out of season items.

                I heard from someone that you could order them from Dollar Tree's web site and have them shipped to the store. Personally I paid an arm and a leg for mine last winter because they were "out of season" in my area in the stores and I didn't know about the Dollar Tree thing. I got 'em here http://www.flaghouse.com/Water-Noodl...f-24-item-8052 As you can see the price sucks.

                      I got 72 of them in the 18' leaving a good size space for a ski/rod locker. I didn't put them in my 16'. The 16' being (obviously) shorter and also a shallower V, will fit far less. Huron Angler can probably better answer.

                        Are you guys doing any calculating to see how much flotation you need? As far as mine goes there is a ton of foam in it and I don't know if I use noodles or foam board if I will even come close to having the equivilant to what Starcraft put in there (poured Foam). I figure they must have done a calculation to have enough to float a swamped boat. I'm hesitant to just say "that should be enough" and hope it's enough.

                          Timfives started a thread on the topic of "how much flotation do I need" and did some math on it. I'd check that out for some good info.

                          My philosophy on this is to put in as many noodles and closed cell foam bloacks as I can fit. Having a ski locker certainly prevented me from getting in the same amount as the factory, but I am planning on adding more under my bow cap and under the gunwales as well.

                          We fit 25 noodles under the deck mostly outside the stringer and a few 4x8 sheets of pink foam too. Haven't tested it for buoyancy yet.

                            Thanks for the info guys. HA that is a good idea about putting them under the bow cap as I did not think about that. I could glue them in when I flip the boat over to prep the bottom for painting

                              Ok I just read the calculatioms timfives and others did and came to the conclusion that I am still confused. anyway I got another idea reading that thread that what if I built some boxed areas in the under deck area out of pink or blue board and then filled it with two part foam. that would keep it off the AL. and leave room for draining. what do you guy think.

                                I'm a big fan of the hybrid foam board/pourable foaming solution for glass boats. As long as you keep it off the tin, go for it.
