Re: River Belle

I didn't know that DR Northwester. That hull is close to a boat I owned for years, well before I heard of Atkins but she could have been called a Sea Bright Skiff. I hauled the boat in the Raritan River in NJ and an old boat mechanic told me that she looked like a Sea Bright. I told him, we have tha...

Re: Alan's C17

I planned for a rounded bow at the upper panel just as in the C19 and C21. The bow is sharp at the cutwater but rounded above the style line (= second panel).
If you look at fiberglass boats, the bow there is never sharp. What you did is correct.

Yes, Peter's boat should be at the top of those pictures.

Re: Cs19 modification

There is a C19, I suppose that's the one you are looking at. There is a cuddy cabin version of the C19 named CX19:

Re: D5 Build

Do you guys think I need a skeg?
The designer thinks you need it, that's why it is on the plans. :D

In this boat, it is not a stiffener but it is important for tracking even with an outboard.
Why would you remove it?

Re: MI12 (McInnis Bateau) Build

Good plan but check the cost of shipping, the total may be cheaper than the local plywood.

Re: FS14 Bayou boat

I would like to cut them, at a taper, 1 inch less than that and increase the width as it goes forward. Can I add a second stringer where it gets thin to add strength back? The stringers are the backbone of the boat, you can not cut them lower. Adding more short stringers will not help much, sorry. ...

Re: MI12 (McInnis Bateau) Build

You can use 4 mm, I show that as an option. The lightest wood is Okume and you need very few sheets. I would go for Okume but you can use Meranti.
Okume is 20% lighter than Meranti and cost about $ 6.00 more.

I don't think Jeff stocks 4mm in Meranti, very few people do.

Re: FS14 Bayou boat

I did not see your post. Yes, you can change the stringers. You can not lower them to less than 3" especially close to the transom. You can raise them all you want. I don't understand what the goal is. If the goal is to lower the sole, you need stringers at least 3". For what you show in the stern, ...
