Re: Texas Scooter 19 Question

Corrected: I confused the Texas Scooter with the TX18, our inverted vee hull, sled type. Let's start again. Yes, can scale the that boat by 10% up or down, by scaling all dimensions. To scale only the length is much more difficult, please see this: https://boatbuildercentral.com/wp/support-tutorials...

Re: Cape Sable Cooler

That's not a cooler, that's a bomb shelter! Where is the " I like this post" button? :D Yes, it is a beast of a cooler but don't worry about delamination of the foam and all that. The whole plywood structure is strong enough and while air will get between foam and glass or plywood, it will add an e...

Re: Row 13 build

As soon as somebody moves a couple of inches in a small boat, it will not be level anymore. Maybe the question is: how can I guarantee that the decks are all in the same plane (coplanar), at the same level? That is easy: drop a 2x4 on it or any other straight beam. Does it matter? Not for the boat's...

Re: P21 - Questions

Thanks to every body for posting figures.
I remember the long discussions with Matt about that 140 and considering how he would use the boat.

Re: Building the HB20, HB18 without cabin but in deck boat style

It can be done but did you look at our GF18? It has more freeboard than most Aluminum jon boats.
If that's not enough, any of the HB boats can be built with a flush deck.

The handle cut with the laminated stiffeners is a very nice touch.

Re: Cheap Canoe Kit

9 oz. 4" wide or 6 oz. biaxial 5 or 6" wide are each valid. When I designed the boat, 6 oz. biaxial tape did not exist. When it became available, I suggested to use it wherever I specified the 9 oz. tape because it is stronger, lighter and easier to shape. Use which ever one you have, it does not ma...

Jacques, the way I read it, he is trying to avoid buying another sheet of plywood, by splicing two smaller pieces together to make the part he needs.
Without a butt block, it will flex. If there are no marine ply pieces leftover, how about using using a small plank?

Re: Row 13 or other?

Seat tops and frames can be made from 1/4" instead of 3/8.
If light weight is the goal, consider to make all the flat parts: frames, seat tops and transom, from foam sandwich then build a 4 mm hull skin.
