Re: LM18 Drawings for round chine option

Capt UB,

There is not a round chine option included in the plans. We simply created a round chine option for the CNC kit. Colemanfire is building the round chine, straight sheer, no tunnel LM18 cut from a CNC kit.

Re: LM 18 First Time Build

Capt UB,

John is building the first LM18 Standard Sheer, Round Chine with no tunnel option. John got the CNC kit. We are able to cut slits in the hull panels in order to achieve the rounded chine. Frames A and B are also rounded over in order to allow the hull panels to curve appropriately.

Re: GF14 glassing and sanding questions

Rumdoctor, Pee Wee is right. The pattern you noticed is perfectly normal. If you didn't see that pattern that would mean that you put way too much Epoxy on your fiberglass (Epoxy Rich). The goal is to use the least amount of Epoxy to wet out the fiberglass and squeegee out the extra. Too much simply...

Re: XF20 low sheer

Jwhitakeriii, If you are looking for a design that can accommodate more than 3 people, I would go with the XF20. The FS18 is a comfortable fishing boat for 2 persons but can certainly handle 3 persons if you are just cruising around. The XF20 has a much wider beam and can accommodate more people and...

Re: Question: Can V10 be built using all 1/4" ply?

PaulD, I just went over the plans, the BOM calls for 2 sheets of 6mm for the bottom panels and side panels and 2 sheets of 9mm for the frames, transom, and seats. Jacques would obviously be the ultimate authority on this but I would think that if you have plenty of 6mm then you laminate 2 pieces of ...
