john211 made a post in this thread: Tower base
Again, I agree with your inclination that you should make a filler. Doing so by 3D printing? I'm a generation too old to give that any thought. But soft aluminum? The forces your filler is being asked to handle seem to me ... thinking about it a...

Anyway, there's some food for thought. Regarding adhesive-backed anything and then the desire to get rid of the adhesive gum afterwords ... think that through before hand. One sure way to get rid of left-over adhesive gum on aluminum is to sand ...

john211 made a post in this thread: Tower base
If you get no other inputs, and if this were my own job, I'd be doing what you're thinking. Looking at your colored drawing, I would think that the blue "filler" would be pretty necessary for good distribution of the load between the base of the ...

john211 made a post in this thread: Hole patch
I'm serious about what I'd do. Get a large-headed plastic fastener. Nylon? Chamfer that hole slightly in the gel coat so as to hopefully eliminate sites where cracks can initiate and then propagate from there. Slather 5200 around that fastener in ...

john211 made a post in this thread: Another interesting tower
Umm ... it's fine. I'm feeling guilty about the disparaging of other peoples' towers (which I partook in) when all they want to do is wakeboard ... but ... their budget is ... what it is.

"Anyone do this: "Sear it in an well seasoned iron skillet in the house first, then to the grill?" Somewhat I do ... under different circumstances ... when making a pot roast. I saw this suggestion on television some 15 years ago. If for example...
