Re: Harbour Master 19

If you’re looking for a center console version, I’m pretty sure the OD18 is basically a CC version of the HM19.

I don’t see any reason it can’t be removed as long as you account for weight shifts forward and aft. I’m sure Jacques or one of the Bateau guys will answer directly as well though.

Re: GT27 Build (Wes K)

Wow!! Love the color (I’m partial to the old school Whalers), but the coolest thing I’ve read so far is the “no tipping needed” part. That’s crazy. Love it. Let me know if you need some help with the flip! Not too far away now 8)

Re: Panga 20 vs Devlin Curlew

I haven’t looked at the Curlew specifically, but Devlin designs usually rely on a much thicker plywood core with fiberglass skins to protect the plywood. The design here kind of the opposite (in my simple brain). Jacques seems to use the plywood to make the shape of the boat and the biax fiberglass ...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

At least 30 hours of detailing to ensure all end grain of marine ply is epoxy fillet protected, and fully preparing for the next step of the glassing decks, and decks to hull junction, sans air bubbles. Hard to see the difference, but necessary and satisfying work. :D That and you cleaned the shop ...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

I’m with you on end grain GB. The way I did it was that I ran 3-4 layer of blue tape stuck to the bottom (about 1/3-1/2 of the tape width) around my panels. Then I formed a roughly 90 degree bend upwards in the blue tape (very similar to how drywall guys use the paper tape to make inside corner bend...

Re: GT27 Build (Wes K)

You can try WM Cramer and see if they have any cypress. The only luck I've had with any decent wood around Augusta is unfortunately to drive to Hazelhurst or Atl both 2+hours away :help: Also, FWIW I just check HomeDepot online, and they have 4x4x8 untreated doug fir beams in Augusta. At least the w...

Re: GT27 Build (Wes K)

Just a thought Wes. Since your goal is to basically remove the threat of wood rot permanently have you thought about completely different alternatives? 1. Find a wood specialty shop around and get some 8/4 8” cypress boards and top them with a strip of starboard. 2. It would be crazy expensive, but ...
