Re: OB15 "Shad Dart" First Boat Build-NC

looking at my OB15 plans, i think what you're seeing is the line that is drawn on the nesting that shows where the side panel meets the bottom. this line is unnecessary. lay out your bottom panels per the dimensions on 107/6. This line you're referring to is shown on that sheet as well. this is not ...

Re: Corsair 13 in Metairie LA

plenty of builders add hardware after paint, you just have to drill, fill, and re-drill any holes to make sure there isn't exposed wood.

Re: Flared Bow on C19

Yes, that boat in the picture is very pretty but it will probably require cold molding. I have such a design on my list but I work very slowly lately and miss all my deadlines. It is a cold molded design. As that is how most of those boats are constructed these days. Of course, they used to be 100%...

Re: Flared Bow on C19

https://www.saltboatworks.com/wp-content/uploads/CS-21-exterior-1.jpg This is a "Down East NC" style boat. Almost a dory. Very low deadrise at the transom. Nearly vertical stem. Lots of flare. I like the look of the flare too. I'll be following with interest. Be sure to post pics of your process.

Re: Question about OB 15 plans.

If you're talking about discrepancies between the dimensions, can you site a specific example? Jacques will chime in, but his tolerance on the Imperial plans is probably around +/- 1/8". This is 3mm. Cutting by hand, this precision is unlikely. I'd use the metric plans to build my cut files. Compute...

Re: FS14_LS

Unless the boat will live in the water, you do not have to use antifouling paint. Topside paint will work below the waterline. A lot of builders here use a graphite/epoxy mix on the bottom for abrasion resistance.
