Re: Composite Mast

I emailed Reid. The kit existed but was removed form the site because of a supply problem. Reid is working on it.

Re: My cx 25

You have a choice: single engine or twin. I recommend a single 250 HP. Check the building thread of Curacao Peter, he was happy with a single 300 HP. My original recommendation for twins was 280 as in two 140 or 145. Some have installed up to 400 HP (2 x 200 HP) but I find that excessive. Those reco...

Re: Roman´s OB15 (First Time Builder)

More for Roman:
- please tell me as much as possible about that gap . If it is just a 10 cm tip of the stringers lifting up, we can live with it but not if the gap goes all the way to the mid seat frame.
- is it the first layer or the 2nd one? Probably the 1st layer but I want to be certain.

Re: Roman´s OB15 (First Time Builder)

I may have misunderstood because of some replies. The outside looks superb, great job. Let's talk about what must be done before the foam, just as I describe on the plans: - all inside tabbing must be done along the chines, transom and bow. I think I see that in the pictures, it looks fine. No probl...

Re: Roman´s OB15 (First Time Builder)

NO! Please, do not think the job of the glass tape is to glue parts together. It does that but the tabbing is part of the structure. For example, the glass tape along the stringers creates a long fiberglass beam. Without it, the boat will fall apart. The fiberglass tape and the overlaps are the skel...

Is it possible to scale up either the HS18 or TX18 for a longer boat?
Yes, the scaling rules that I list in our HowTo files apply.

Re: Hickman Sled 18 Bonus plans

Thanks for looking. I got the plans an did a quick overall look before i had to sleep for work tonight. I am about to look them over again. Was the Bill Jackson redesign named the "Sea Jet" and "Veep"? I found plans from a William Jackson. I doubt there are to many "Jacksons" designing Hickman styl...

Re: Cat 22

I'll give free plans for a detailed building thread, once it is published. It's not much compared to the total investment but a start.

I am certain that Jeff will offer a deal if you buy all the supplies from BBC.

Re: FS14LS Pre-Planning

Reid found the problem. While creating the PDF package, we mixed two sets of files. One drawing shows the stringers spacing as 13", the other 10" from CL. 10" is correct. Disregard the drawing that shows 13". We will remove that drawing from the package. Sorry but thank you for posting about it. Thi...

Re: FS14LS Pre-Planning

Frames height: the baseline BL is the top of the stringers. The BL is shown on the frames.
Can you tell me where you see differences and give me the drawing numbers?
