Re: Any ideas on how to use this space...

You say you don't need more storage, then we all proceed to discuss what could be stored there! I guess you're saying you don't need room to permanently store anything? How about a couple Rubbermaid containers that slide under, retained by a bungee. They'd stay empty until you had a trip you needed ...

Re: FS18 on the double!

It's hard to tell from the photos, but your transom should fit between the hull layers with the rear face of the transom lined up with the rear of the hull panels, not sitting behind. Most guys put temporary screws through the hull panels into the transom. Looking like a boat now!

Re: Crabby Patti2 C17

Cracker Larry found that hosing off the hull with water gave it a temporary glossy finish that was an indicator of how nice or bad things would look with paint on them. You're beyond that stage, though, just mentioning it for any readers who might benefit. Nearly there with the paint, looking good!

Re: PH18 Build in North Dallas (PH20)

Here is the latest. This weekend was about 6 hours of garage cleaning, and 3 hours of boat building. After so much cutting a person just has to slow down and clean the place. Casey It's taken me years to come to the view that time spent cleaning and straightening is an essential part of the job, no...

Re: C12 - TL70 - Brazil

You're making such good progress I don't know if this will be useful to you anymore, but one method to help in removing a butt block would be to use a circular saw set to almost the thickness of the butt block and make many cuts near each other, then a chisel to remove the bulk of the wood, then san...

Re: LM18 in Perry, GA

Any reason you're waiting to trim off the excess glass? Seems like the sooner it's done the easier it would be, but I don't know what you've got in mind. I have cut glass both ways, when it was wet/green and cured. Unless it's in the way, I would wait till it's cured. Less of a mess.... I used a dr...

Re: Swift Canoe 16

It looks like you didn't get a response yet, did you see this paragraph in the study plans? "Rigged with a 6 HP outboard, the Swift will plane with 2 people (350 lbs) on board. Heavier loads will require more HP. We know that most owners of square stern canoes use larger engines but 6 HP is the limi...
