That's the beer I was raised on. Not to mention put hair on my chest (and alittle on my back :help: ).

Trust me, the fever only gets worse. I've wasted countless trees and computer space playing with my plans. My wife says I'm cheating on her with a boat....that can't even be used yet :lol:

Each boat plan has it's own particular fiberglass laminations according to what the boat was designed for, and everyone of them will have multiple layers of fiberglass(counting the outside and inside), especially at structurally important areas like the keel, chines, transom, and around the motorwel...

Alright, so kind of an interesting development when I got home today. I got a true straight edge (thanks Joel :oops: ) and started marking everything up. I checked it from the transom forward 8feet. The keel dip was by far the worst but it was only 1/4" ( not 3/8") with the straight edge. When I cam...

Here's my setup. It's a shelter logic, I haven't had it up very long, but so far it works great. I added 45 pound weights to each of the 4 outside legs and tied it down to the concrete fence in the back. The wind can be a pain, but with all that securing it doesn't move a whole lot. http://gallery.b...

It will help. But the fiberglass is going to want to pull it back to the mis-shape. I have a solution though.... After you have used the shims and straight 2x4's (I would cut them with a straight edge, rarely do you get a true 2x4) to pull the bottom to flat, heat the area of the hull where you hav...

At this stage in my build I flipped the hull to glass the inside and install the stringers and bulkheads then flipped it back over to do the fairing, but most other builders start their fairing now I was going to try and completely finish the outside then flip it, but now that I've got the hooks (s...

A bit of plywood and fibreglass= Instant Boat It's fun to see it come together so quickly. Looking cool I appreciate the compliment Bassmun. Now if I can just fix the new problem with my hull hook, maybe I can speed back up. I hope to be where your's is by the end of next month. (Although that may ...

Wet on wet alone on a 22' boat? Man, I thought I was sore doing that on a 15' boat. :D Great job, looks really clean. Might I suggest a few cold brews and a couple of days of bragging to your friends before continuing. It really helps those acky muscles.
