I definitely didn't use enough flake on my boat.  I think i only used a 2oz container for my CV16.  I really need to redo that lol.  How do you even order a pound of it?

Roth sells it in 2,4,6,8,16 oz.  And hoping 16 will be enough.. there is a base coat of the same color so it should be very sparkly.... and Iím going for the light blue with dark blue sparkle like yours Gregg.

How about  foam?  I want to refill the foam boxes in the back. What do you guys use and where can I get some?   Iíve head talk about open and closed cell?  The difference?   Something better then the stuff you can find at manards, Home Depot??

You'll want to use the 2lb marine foam made for the purpose, none of the big box stores carry the correct stuff.  I've purchased from US composites online, but we don't have a store nearby like you have in the twin cities.

Well... DAMN BRYAN! That was a very fast project. My all time favorite color scheme. Love it. Wanted to go the same way back then but since my CVX16 was the same color I went with something else and stuck with the original.
Canít wait to see it finished.
Someone across the pond is gonna be very jealous, not just cause of the exhaust tips at this point ;-)

Btw the silver logs were the ones that were mounted on the other Timi at the anniversary meeting if Iím seeing correct. They also have a sparkle to them donít they?

Fast.?!?!    Itís been almost 11 weeks!    2-4 hours a night and some rainy weekends at around 30+ hours each that we couldnít take one of the other boats out.. and a very understanding wife who loves the hobby also and lets me do this stuff.... by the way there is a honey do list that almost lasts all winter.... Give and take gentle men....    besides I just couldnít see this one getting ďparted outĒ Just because of a little tree mishap...                             KEEP EM ON THE WATER!!

You've done a great job saving a Timi!  On another thread related to tree damage, you posted a pic of the dash damage, but what caught my eye was the outdrive laying in pieces in the floor.  It looks to be a mc1 pre alpha, but the lower unit has a nose cone.  Interested to know if you put this drive to use or replaced it.

You see correctly, how ever all those parts are junk... the logs and risers were not winterized and cracked, the lower has a nose cone on it but the gears must have locked up and cracked the sides.. so with my 23 needing a complete rebuild I am using all the motor and outdrive parts from that. I just had the motor rebuilt last year and is pushing 350íish  hp so I know it will run great in the smaller timi.     ;D
