Re: Preparing for GT27 build - questions

If your taking measurements of the "completed hull" no. The 2d view of the hull would not account for the curvature (as you suggest). But why would you do that if you've got an actual "here are all the measurements for each part" already done for you? I'm slow, so if you've explained it already just...

Re: C19 versus C21 outboard question

I figure the cost of buying the full plans for my boat was about 1/4 of 1% of the overall cost of the build. Seems like a tiny investment to get all the info you might need to make a decision to build or not. A huge problem for me is that if I buy 3-4 complete plans, my OCD won't let me rest until ...

Re: SK14 build question

look in the how to section of the site. There's some information with details on what to look out for from the designer himself (Jacques). The cliff notes is that you should 1. buy the metric version of the plans 2. multiply every measurement by 1.1 ... EVERY MEASUREMENT 3. ignore the included nesti...

Re: SK14 for sale

Mike, do you recall the hull weight? I want to say you were pretty light on the build but still between 120 and 170 less the motor and fuel.

Re: SK14 for sale

I've some buddies here at work that have been talking about getting "something better than a kayak". You may have just made their day. Let me see if I can get them to view the link. And if I had to pick one skinny boat to say "i guarantee it's solid" this would be it. I was building Lil Bit the same...

Re: AD16 Questions

HA! I know some of these!!! I may have asked JM similar questions... Hollow wood: yes, but will need larger size. Solid wood would be better but heavier. Alum mast from production boat would be cheaper too. Step style: is keel stepped. Could be deck stepped but I don't know if that's in the plans. I...

Re: Derek's dream

Derek, if this is a "can i build it" boat, then think about something a bit less... ambitions. Say an OD18 or FS17. They have different uses, but will put you though ALL the paces of boat building. The OD (and OB) might be more to your gulf (near shore) fishing plans with overlap for the big boy toy...

Re: FS14 Bayou boat

Fuzz, I’m not “old” but you can’t convince the body that it’s young. Moving from the north to the south was the fix for me. You should try it for a year.

Not sure what OQ can do at this point. South for him is quite a bit more complicated. :D

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

My wife would be pushing me over the rail. Something about sharks being helpful.

Honestly, I don’t know how you ever get off the boat and go back to living on land. Those island look to be the stuff of most people’s dreams.

Re: FS14 Bayou boat

If you just put the mix down yesterday it likely isn't fully cured. Check the flex in about 3 more days.

I'd love to see it be a decent fill. Light. A bit floaty. Seems perfect.
