Re: Under represented HMD19

Thanks for this Reid and Bogieman. Evan did a super design - he deserves kudos. She is sweet looking for anyone who prefers a pocket cruiser. Alas :roll: launching will not be for another year at the very least. Another HMD19 coming up is from Daniel (changeat44 - Sweet Esmarelda). Looking forward t...

Under represented HMD19

Hi Bateau, I just saw a few photos of my Penny HMD19 in the Power Boat Plans 17' to 20' section. Good to see but this design is sadly under represented on the site. It would be nice to see DougN and Chicagoross boats as well ? In the "to see more pictures " tab, there are only 3 photos of early hull...

Re: Permanent vs Removeable Fuel tanks

Hi rbecker08, I have a different boat altogether (HMD19) and only using a whopping 9.9 outboard but in retrospect, I would have used a portable tank(s) The 12 gal permanent tank under the sole makes me feel a bit uncomfy. The plumbing, tank venting, compartment venting and access to the tank fitting...

Re: Stringers AARGGHHH!

..and confirm; your pieces have been pre-wetted ? i.e. coat of epoxy on both pieces prior to spreading the glue ?

Re: Penny HMD19

Hey Daniel !! Still snacking on the cookies :D. I am anticipating seeing photos of your model and the real thing later on.

Re: Penny HMD19

Hi all, It has been a while but here is Penny being hauled on the trailer ready for the ride home. These were taken last fall - it was a scorching hot day. Today though, there is 2 feet of snow on the ground, it is -20C and she looks lonely and pathetic covered with a tarp but she is finally parked ...

Re: Laziness/Invention/Fairing

Hi VT_Jeff, Yep, the butt joints. I only have one right at midships (one each side) and those took a bit of time. The feathering extended a good two feet forward and aft of the joint but it got done eventually. The routing of one ply layer as you described was done on the cockpit sole and that turne...

Re: Laziness/Invention/Fairing

Fairing is time consuming finicky work but is not difficult as barraman points out. Stitch and glue hulls by nature have flat panels curved on only one direction and not compound so that makes work much more easier. The only “problem” areas are the chines, butt joints and wherever there is tabbing s...
