Re: Port A XF 20

Ran the boat thru truck stop weigh station. Motor and full load less people shows 2220. Don’t believe that and think I may be closer to 1500. Um, tell me to get lost if you want, but declaring the scale results wrong and substituting a guess seems like the wrong thing to do. That's quite a discrepa...

Re: Notching and cutting the frames? -fs18

So I’m wondering if I need to wait for hard copies of the plans. I went through the Digital copies and the minimalist fs18 thread which was incredibly detailed and read through the notching part of the tutorial. I did not see measurements for notching unless I missed it and only one of the frames a...

Re: SK14 in TX

Looking good, nice progress and good looking helper! I don't know if you plan to foam the outer compartments, but consider at least clamping a temporary rub rail to the sheer to hold the shape for when you do work on the sides. At least one builder had difficulty regaining a fair line after pouring ...

Re: Texas Flats Boat

That looks like a Texas sized back yard, at first glance I thought is was a golf course! Cutting and gluing the stringers is a chore. Does anyone do this using 3/4" plywood instead of two layers of 3/8"? Or would there be strength issues at the joints by doing that? It's better to make any stringers...

Re: Texas Flats Boat

That's the same kind of sheet-good cart we used where I used to work, it worked well for us.

The ideal for plywood storage is a warehouse and forklift, LoL!

Re: Plyak12 build by gbgb

Yes, to make epoxy glue you need a filler like wood flour, adjust the amount of filler according to the need- usually a ketchup/catsup consistency but sometimes it has to be thicker. Check under How To's at the top of the page on this site for more detail on making and using epoxy glue. Use enough t...

Re: FS18 "Flats Bottom Girl" - Team Above Avg

I over drilled where the screws go, re-filled with epoxy, and then embedded stainless steel t-nuts flush with the level of the floor. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/91684/normal_20200712_185659.jpg It looks like you installed the t-nuts from the top, I'm accustomed to seeing them instal...

Re: Jaysen's Mini 580 plan

It looks like there are potential issues, but proper prep plays a part. It looks like the oils in the wood are a factor; here's a discussion on epoxy/white oak:
