Re: Puzzle Joint panel length

4' x 16'4" is the length give or take a couple of inches. The plywood is actually longer than 8' and I don't believe the puzzle joint (2" on each piece) uses all the extra length.

Re: Custom hardtop for 41' sport fish

Based upon your other work, I'd expect nothing less than what's in the picture. Beautiful work.

Re: Preparing for GT27 build - questions

Try to not blame JM my friend. They are shown on the drawing. Some people study drawings more thoroughly before they begin the build. In my case, the drawings flowed just ahead of the work; a different drama. I would not blame JM either but in this case, I don't think the plans specify length... Th...

Re: Preparing for GT27 build - questions

The runners are only there for planing and tracking. That's why I asked about the speed. If you are planning for displacement speeds, the runners may not be needed. If you are planning on high speed (over 50 hp motor), then 3/4's of the length of the hull that will be in the water at planing speeds....

Re: Preparing for GT27 build - questions

Re: Panga 20 Build

Not only dropping temps but in high humidity the moisture will want to stick to everything. Increases risk of epoxy wanting to blush. I avoid epoxy work if temps will be in the low 60s in a 24 hour forecast. If I did it that way there would only be 3 days in the year I could lay epoxy :P you barely...

I don't blame him as he needs to be enjoying his semi-retirement! :wink:

From past posts, the design work takes a good bit of time. Not as simple as adding a couple of feet...

I also use the air compressor and vacuum (a lot).

Vac first with a brush, then crevice tool.
Why the brush and then the crevice tool?
