    welcome .....

    To add to what frank has said the cost of making a die will run you from 8-20 k depending on what you want done with it , I have looked into it with the local companies and there is a huge cost up front die, press set up and then press time ,before you get your first part in your hands. Unless you are looking to sell 25-50k there is no savings on making your own.

    If you can find a lite with uv LED bulbs in it that's the way you want to go, it is far the best lite to work on the glow spoons . The glow that is out there is designed to be rechargered by uv ,yes you can us a hi beam style lite but if you want to get the most out of the spoon uv. It is like sitting them on your dash on a sunny day.

  3. Rule of thumb the more day light you have the better it works ,It works on the UV rays given off from the sun,so on a sunny day the UV is high and even on a cloudy day there are still UV out there but not as strong.That's what makes it work. I always run a few hot color patterns with UV all day rain or shine.

  4. I would have to say both.... Being that in low lite conditions the uv just don't work like it would in a bright sunny day or even in a some what over cast day, I use both and the uv make the lures that you would normally use in the upper water collum 0-30 or so just as good at depts of 60-70 org,yellow and char have so much color with the uv coating.

    I'm sold on it and I will use it till the next greatest thing pops up

  5. Could be a bad filter or even a bad pickup screen in the tank. Dose it come and go or is it there all the time? Is it more on take off or just cruising? could be a fuel pump starting to go if the fillers are clean, with a carb it would spit a sputter on take off and normally you wouldn't have that kind of RMP drop if you are just cruising , check for a bad (craked ) wire or cap if it is shorting out you will drop that plug and then you are firing on 7. I also would do a compression check and see where you are at, you may have a weak one or two. And it may be time to rebuild. Engine are fun to figure out but you only need to things to make them run gas and electric one can't run well with out the other.

    I hope that this helps and you find the issue.

    looks great so far, been there and done that along with the stringers just take your time and make sure it all bonds together tight with no air pockets. I had a good friend redo his four winns last year and used a new composite fiberglass board that was priced around the same price as marine board and was pretty easy to cut and glass over and with no wood in it you don't have to worry about rot again. If you want the companies name I can get it for you just give me a shout.
