Re: Job Opening at E-Boat

Re: od16 Number 2!

The sole width did cross my mind, but I stuck with 140mm (5 .5 or so") coz it rang a bell from the last build. The plans confused me because the materials info (nestings etc) said 6" but the drawing plans say 140mm deep. Too late now, I'm glueing tomorrow, depending on the size of the hangover of co...

The frames do not extend through the sole to the bottom hull, (although I think that the OD18 is built this way) The boat goe...

Re: User Rankings

Completed OD16 and D5, cut out hull, sides and transoms for GT27 and because I sold my Dory and miss it so much I have bought the plans for a second OD16, stopped working on the GT27 and have started work on a new dory, hopefully ready by summer :D

Most of the time the GT27 will be moored and used as a weekender with the occasional chortle around Princess Royal Harbour. The first Dory was realy light, though buil...
