Re: Cx25 Integrated Bracket

I apologise in advance for the hijack. Could someone explain why mounting a clamping board on the end of the stringers is a better solution than a well built "plywood box"? It seems as though it would concentrate all the stresses in a small area where a well designed bracket ("plywood box") could d...

Re: Cx25 Integrated Bracket

Jacques I fully understand your point. Lengthening the stringer would in fact extend the hull and that is probably more trouble then it'w worth. What I had in mind was more like lengthening the stringer at an angle to create the bracket piece. Essentially the "bracket" would be and extension of the...

Re: Cx25 Integrated Bracket

BTW I have a seen an engine fall in the ocean before, not pretty, and the silence after it happen was something else. Lots of money on that transom. If you ever trailer the boat, you might encounter the most severe stress conditions on the road. Think speed bump, pothole, curb . . . Not saying you ...

Re: Cx25 Integrated Bracket

Holy Molly! This picture is exactly what I was thinking, except in my mind the bottom would have been angled up a little more. I think if we stop calling it a bracket but instead a mini transom would make more sense. What Peter is doing is just like Jacques described, except it's offset from the hul...

Cx25 Integrated Bracket

Hello everyone I am looking into getting the plan for the CX25. I know the whole scaling issue has been discussed here ad nauseam and there will be none of that here. What I really want to do is build her with an integrated bracket. What I was thinking of doing is the following: 1 Extend the Stringe...

Re: Abaco 23

Hi Dean. Very nice work so far. I have been studying my plan and it seems like the station diagrams are missing some dimensions. Since your stations are so nicely cut, I assume you have not seen this issue in your set of plan? Keep up the good work. All the plans are the same, no change since they ...
