Re: Mike Smith's TW28 build

To get to below shape, you need kerfing, no other way to bend to that shape. Before flip, I crawled underneath the boat and filled the kerfed areas where accessible - just to have more strength during flip. As you are removing frames for flip, that felt the logical thing to do, but it was really har...

What a fun build. She must take her shape fast.

Is it build on its own bulkheads or must you use frames first?
Frames first.
Requires a lot of scarfs from frame C onwards for the bow to take shape.
Flip - remove frames - fill scarfs - laminate per schedule then start installing frames

Re: Mike Smith's TW28 build

No scarf joints, things just got a lot easier. I was wondering if the nesting allowed enough room for the scarf joints. I thought I saw puzzle joints in the pre cut kit? No scarf joints, epoxy putty in between the panels and min 6 inch fiberglass specified on lamination schedule on both sides. Belo...

Re: Railing heights/ideas

Dan, definitely not criticizing at all.
This is the point of custom made to your liking, aesthetically that is not pleasing to my eye, that's all. No harm intended.

Re: Railing heights/ideas

Your back rail might be multi-functional Cumhur utilized a different layout with back rails also serving as a back rest on his TW28 because of the design of your boat and the massive width that you have :D it might look smaller. https://scontent-frt3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/1091204_1015171570145082...

Re: Railing heights/ideas

I got my rails done by a SS fabricator to my specs The problem with height is the looks, the more the uglier. Also I believe you cannot call a certain height like 24'' or 26'' etc directly as it needs to be proportional to overall length of the boat. Yes we want safety but too high turns into a shar...
