Console pilot house on FS19

Would it be possible to add one of the console pilot houses to the FS19. Would building it from finished Nidacore be acceptable.

Re: FS19 in Washington State

Making slow progress, had to rebuild the jig to lower the transom 1/2 inch and I have to jury rig a design to move the boat around the garage. With the hull panels in place its to heavy for the wife and I to push it. About ready to align and glue the panels together. I have one question on the bow m...

Re: FS 17 Build

When I built my strongback I placed plywood on the upper surface and used the plywood for measurement assuming it would be more stable. It also provides a good surface for assembling the long-hull pieces.

Re: FS19 - new design

I plan on using a jackplate on my FS19. Am I still limited to a 25 inch shaft?

Re: FS19 in Washington State

Still struggling with the jig, all the molds are installed and as near vertical as we can get them. I think its more important that the molds enter the stringers and the tolerance on the 36 inch spacing at their base acn vary up to 1/4 th of 1/2 inch. The diagonals are within 1/4 inch. The main issu...

Re: FS19 in Washington State

Molds C thru F are mounted on the strong back which is level and molds are perpendicular using a level. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/12700/IMG_1030.JPG The stringer is flush with mold F. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/12700/IMG_1024.JPG Picture of molds D and E. http://gall...

Re: FS19 in Washington State

We added a 1 inch spacer to mold C and it fits as you said with the stringer 1/4 inch below the mold. however we have run into a problem with mold E, the slot is 5 inches and the stringer is 5.5 inches above the slot.

Re: FS19 in Washington State

That was my intent, side consoles with windows and a center opening window to the front casting deck. It'll all have to be custom and built in place on the boat. I ran it by Jacques and he agreed. See:
