Good morning Jacques, Ok, I'm clear about the double thickness being only where there are buttblocks. I've decided to put the frames along the dinette bench edges as I mentioned. Spacing everywhere is now 36" or less. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/12087/normal_stringers%20and%20frames%2...

Here's the best I could do with the 3 hours I had to spare. The darned thing displayed much bigger and clearer in my album when it uploaded, but here it's pretty small. I also noticed that I made a mistake on one of the numbers. I must be tired, I put 86" instead of 96" for the 8' bottom panels. :oo...

Before I sent my earlier email I was careful to check for panel thicknesses. After your comment on doubled up bottom panels somewhere on one of the boats (?) I carefully checked again. I see no double hull thickness anywhere except where the butt blocks are. We've talked about those already so you c...

Thank you for the lead on the book. I just purchased it, order #2421. I honestly don't know why this is so difficult. We're talking about two very similar hull shapes that both use the same thickness of plywood for the bottom panels, side panels, stringers, bulkheads, framework and sole materials. T...

I didn't mean to offend you by using the "mistake" word. I'm certain that when you release a plan you have fixed every known problem that you discovered. However, mistakes are occasionally overlooked and most of the time we don't realize it until someone else points it out. I spent years testing sof...

more questions...

Thank you Jacques. So I should still use a 30" wide butt block over my 6" center panel and space the other 2 stringers 36" off those? for example: the distance from left sidepanel to "left of center" stringer = 36" or so the distance btw the stringers on each side of buttblock = 30" or so the distan...

HB20 hybrid revisited - 2 questions for Jacques

I've looked over the GT23 plans and while it is a great looking boat it doesn't have the depth of hull to do what I wanted to do with it. So, I'm back to the HB20/HB18 hybrid. For a max beam of 8'6" I'll replace the 12" center bottom panel with one 6" wide. To maximize interior space I'm going to na...
