Re: Where is the Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) plan?

Thanks for all the input. Fallguy, sorry, but not near enough beer in your plan... :lol: I'm pretty good with Acad, and started sketching up what I want. It will have a flat bottom with a rocker, and will be built with 3 sheets of 4mm Okoume. only battens/frames on the inside, as rounded as possible...

Re: Where is the Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) plan?

Thanks for the input OWT. I'm tempted to buy a few sheets of the thinnest Okoume and start playing. Some of the racing SUPs I have seen have a v-hull, and that makes sense depending on what water you are cutting through. But I'm thinking for a general purpose SUP for inland lakes, a displacement fla...

Re: Where is the Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) plan?

I know that this thread is dated, but I just had my first SUP outing, and would really like to build one. If the SUP plans are too challenging, could I build the SK13 with no freeboard or transom, maybe even scale it down to 90%? Basically make it a dedicated SUP? Still pondering, I think a flat bot...

Re: Looking for a specific boat plan I'm not sure exist

Please clarify, but it sounds like you plan to use the oars to "guide" the boat on a downstream float, not row it - basically a drift boat that planes. I fish with a buddy in MI who uses his boat for just that. The best way I can describe it is a tiller controlled OD-18 with tunnel and jet drive. It...

Re: HC 14 "Lost Boy" Build

Don't give up on the "Lost Boy" just yet! No one wants to hear that they may have to modify a boat that they just finished, but I think that you are a few adjustments away from a very usable, and useful boat. For reference, below is a link to my HC12 build: https://forums.bateau2.com/viewtopic.php?f...

Re: HC14 Canoe - Seems more unstable than expected

What Jacques said. I paddle with some kayakers once a week over the summer in my HC12, and am thankful for the speed. One suggestion is that you may want to lower the seats a little. They seem fairly high in the pic. There is also a learning curve - you will definitely feel more comfortable in time....

Re: HC 14 Seam Issue

Oh, sorry, I couldn't tell from the picture. I still think I would fix the inside first. Maybe put a piece of packing tape on the opposite side so that your epoxy slurry doesn't drip through and give you a mess to grind down. Should be easy though whichever side you start on. I do know your frustrat...

Re: HC12-X Nesting

It's been about five years since building this. I was asked about it recently and thought I would share, from a couple weeks ago. Simple to throw in the back of my wagon, and store upright in my breezeway. Forgot how to post pics, but I put a pic in the gallery: http://gallery.bateau2.com/displayima...

Re: HC 14 Seam Issue

At this point, it looks like the seams are sufficiently held in place. I think I would build the inside radius and tape out if you haven't done so. Then come back and fill the outside seam and re-fiberglass where necessary. Not a big deal either way. Nice choice of a canoe. I built an HC12 that is s...
