Re: OD16 Water below the sole (* A lot)

I would like how the water got in there first.
Do you see anything like a craked seam, delamination, hole?

A 9.9 or 8hp high thrust kicker will push it around 5 knots at half throttle if that helps.
Correct and that's all what's needed for a "get home" motor. The big engine as a single will be more economical too.

Re: FS19 (-5%) in GA

You must avoid hard spots. If the stringers make contact all the way along their edge with no high spots, then you don't need spacers but this is rarely the case.

Re: Panga question for Jacques

The Pangas are too narrow for twin outboards but you can have a backup small outboard on bracket, a kicker.

Re: FS14_LS

That looks really good. I noticed that many of the FS14_LS builders choose to install a very wide rubrail. I wonder why. It is true that the plans of the LS version do not specify the exact size but a laminated rubrail 1.5" wide by 3/4" thick is fine. The wide rubrail does not hurt, it is stronger. ...

Re: FS12 15hp porpoising

Let us know how it works with the Doelfin but as you can see from the other testimonies, the boat should not porpoise.

Re: DE25 cabin fuel tanks and a couple of plan questions

Re: OB15 "Shad Dart" First Boat Build-NC

B107/2 exist in the version of the plans that you received. Sorry but I am working on a new drafting of the plans and the new B107/2 layout is different. I confused the two sets. Let's talk about the set of plans you received. First check that we are discussing the same drawing sheet. The one you ha...

Re: OB15 "Shad Dart" First Boat Build-NC

looking at my OB15 plans, i think what you're seeing is the line that is drawn on the nesting that shows where the side panel meets the bottom. this line is unnecessary. lay out your bottom panels per the dimensions on 107/6. This line you're referring to is shown on that sheet as well. this is not...
