Re: GF16

No foam plans available yet. I need a little bit more time. If you want to start buying materials, get a good foam core, I specify Divinycell H80 for the hull and Aquaplas for the transom. You MUST use HD foam for the transom. Get at least twice the amount of glass and resin specified for the plywoo...

Re: LB26 Transom

Strange, the print files in my folder are correct but anyway, I created a new set. Please email reid@e-boat.net and he will send them to you. If you prefer, send me a message through the forum, confirm your email and I will send a copy from my computer. (I am not in the same office since two years.)...

Re: Derek's dream

The CX25 will go faster, the DE25 is more comfortable but will not take that much HP. A 115 is great for a heavy duty DE25 and she will go 25 knots top, 25 mph cruise. With the same fuel, she will have more range. If you go for the CX25, you can add tanks. Ask Peter from Curacao about the range and ...

Re: Preparing for GT27 build - questions

I try not to give redundant information like the length of a curved panel edge. It is not necessary and would confuse builders, however, when something goes wrong, it makes sense to check all those dimensions in order to understand what the mistake was. In that case, I am available to give that info...

Re: SK14 build question

No change in glass specs. It should work but the volume will go down by about 30% (0.9 exponent 3). I hope you are not too heavy.
Keep us up to date on that customization.

Re: Preparing for GT27 build - questions

The sharper bow angle will not be a problem.
I"m glad you can keep going, no major problem.

Re: SK14 build question

It's heavy, it's at the limit. Some 8 HP weigh close to 100 lbs too. The ideal outboard is 50lbs, like a Suzuki 6HP but a lot depends on the other weights. If you are light, a heavy outboard is not a problem but if you are heavier, it may be. Nothing will break but the trim at slow speed maybe be ba...

Re: C19 versus C21 outboard question

I couldn't care less about how the boat is built. When I commit to buying a plan, it is because I have examined all available information about it and similar plans and deemed it the most appropriate for my needs. We will add information to the new website that is coming soon but to understand how ...
