Saul: How long after you order plans and/or supplies do they ship?

Answer: Right away. But the question should be: "How long after you receive the plan do you start building the boat?" :roll: -vd-

CNC Kits - what Plywood?

Could we specify Okume for the CNC kits? If so, would the additional cost be proportional to the cost of the raw plywood? Thanks. -vd-

Sources for Dual-Blade Marine Wipers?

Thank everyone for the suggestion. I think I will try both: adapting a car/RV wiper set and Rain-X. But if it´s too cumbersome and takes up too much space, I will try Rain-X by itself.<BR><BR>Best regards,<BR><BR>-vd-

Sources for Dual-Blade Marine Wipers?

In preparing for the up coming HV23 plan, I´m trying to locate a source for a set of dual-blade marine wipers but can´t find one anywhere. All the ones I could find are the single blade wiper motors, i.e., each motor controls a separate wiper blade.<BR><BR>The ones I am looking for are those with th...

glass bottom boat

Cell-cast acrylic would be better. It doesn´t bend as much as regular plexiglass does. This cell-cast material is the same type they use to make aquariums in stead of glass. -vd-

FL14: Increasing the Freeboard, Skeg

Can I increase the freeboard (also stern) on the FL14 by extending the height of the sides, the frames, and the stern about 5" more?
