Re: TW28 trailerability?

https://boatbuildercentral.com/support-tutorials/Tutorials/scaling-boat-plans.pdf Always a good read As it is a much easier to scale, suggestion has been to order the metric plans and multiply all dimensions by 1.1 You will not be able to use layouts.

Re: FS18 on the double!

Be proud mate, you have done a cracking job on her.

Rope ladders have the tendency to go under the hull when you are trying to put the first step in, but you are tying that to the platform and that should provide a nice place to grab and upright yourself.

Re: FS18 on the double!

https://bateau.com/boats/FS18/slides/FS18_woodbike_3.jpg I haven’t been on one but I remember this pic which is a nice display of stability.

Re: How much more support do I need?

Re: FS18 on the double!

Boat is looking great and like the wine glass. used to do the same when I was pondering on layouts or design etc :lol: If I was building a boat on 15-18 range, I would really search for a auto paint booth.
