Re: GV10 Frame dimensions

Evan gave me the model years ago. No need to wait.

For B and A:
Frame 1 : 298 and 193
Frame 2 : 400 and 87

Note that this is measured, like the other dimensions, to the point of the keel, not the edge of the limber hole. That point is where the extended bottom sections meet.

Re: GT27 Build (Wes K)

That 2 lb foam is ideal for your purpose. No need for anything heavier or more expensive.

Re: GT27 Build (Wes K)

I like to keep my boats as simple as possible. I had many boats and the ones I enjoyed the most were the very simple ones. Maintenance is a big deal. On a boat that size, even if everything is new, there is always something that will break and I want access. On a GT27, my steering cables and electri...

Re: Cs25 questions

I write about that in the building notes but let's try to explain it differently. I will try to keep it simple and not mention the different options until the end. The hull is the same for all boats, whatever the options. Exactly the same hull, the differences will appear later. The hull is built on...

Re: GT27 Build (Wes K)

let's say that you have a wet compartment (life jacket storage for example) just in front of a foamed compartment. That wet compartment drains through the PVC pipe, under the foam, to the next wet compartment or in the bilges.

Re: DE25 Ownership Log

For ventilation, I like the Breeze Booster.

Re: Cs25 questions

It depends on the version: that first frame is a different location for the long deck or short deck. Same in the stern: closed transom or motorwell. Since you use throw away molds, it is not very important, choose any version you want but it is easier to have the molds in the same place than the fra...

Re: GT27 Build (Wes K)

You can have a combination of dry and wet compartments, that;s up to you. Make a plan: once you start to drain , it has to exit somewhere. Generally, drains go down to the center line so that you can have a dry (foamed) compartment) behind a wet one. For a foamed compartments behind a wet one, insta...

Open the PDF file and zoom in. You will see this: http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/10004/normal_lm18_rail.png If you ordered the printed version, it should be visible. Or print a zoomed in detail. That assembly can be customized but as shown, you have a very stiff sheer edge: 3 layers plus...
