Re: SK14 metric plans query

I updated the plans to show all dimensions from the BaseLine BL. In the old drawing, it was possible to guess how the dimensions were shown but plans should be easy to read, without any guess work. In 90% of my designs, I show dims from the BL and I will update the few plans that use another rule. A...

Re: Notching and cutting the frames? -fs18

only one of the frames are showing notches. That's because they are all the same. The notches dimensions are shown from the CL and BL (center line and base line) The CL and BL are shown on every frame, measure from there. The stringers are straight and level, the cut is always the same, for each fr...

Re: Plyak12 - error in FG cloth quantity in BOM?

OK, good plan for the layout. I would use lighter glass for the deck like 4 oz. The light glass will become transparent, 10 oz. will be visible. You only need a couple feet.

Re: VG26 Build - Start of a new project

Scaling the boat up and the program down is a good plan. BoatBuilderCentral may put together a kit for the hull only scaled 10% up. Electric drives improve very fast and I don't keep up with all the changes but . . . I would follow the youtube link I posted: sailing UMA. They have a video about rig ...

Re: VG26 Build - Start of a new project

Diesel Engine - I spoke to Jeff this morning about getting the specs for the diesel engine and he recommended I post the question here. I can't find in the plans the actual specs. Can you send those over to me? Super struct...

Re: VG26 Build - Start of a new project

Very nice project but maybe a little too much for a 26' boat. Radar, solar panels and a lot of what you list will certainly overburden the VG26. The VG26 is an ideal candidate for a couple sailing up and down the east coast or going to the Bahamas for weeks but not more. The boat has more storage ca...

Re: Plyak12 - error in FG cloth quantity in BOM?

You can cut your glass differently if you want. You can cover the bottom in two halves and tape the seam with a layer of tape. It is a little bit stronger that way but not necessary. This boat could be built just with glass tape on the seams.

Re: Plyak12 - error in FG cloth quantity in BOM?

Here is a picture, it makes it easier to understand. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/10004/normal_PY12_glass~0.jpg The black rectangle is a piece of fiberglass 4 yards long and 50" wide (360 by 125 cm). You have 8 yards = 2 of those. The red lines are the bottom and the deck plywood piece...
