Re: HB 18 weight

I come up with a rough weight of just over 1400lbs with a 400lb trailer, this included using only 70% of the plywood weight and Okume, if you use a different wood the weight will go up. This is without any controls or platform or hardware or outfitting the boat with storage lockers and gear. It incl...

You could look at it the other way Will and be thankful the sides were pretty thin and the bolts pulled out pretty easyily. :lol:

Don't know which case it was! :doh:

Re: PH18 Build in North Dallas

Good description FF. In this case no need for baseline marks as your trying to find how far to adjust one side to the other and you have some good help.

Re: PH18 Build in North Dallas

Naw George I just like to mark the ends at the same height with a black mark. That way if you can't see the other guy you can holler mark. No big deal. If the ends of the tubes are marked equally it makes it easy to mark the level. Especially over long distances. You don't have to, like you say. But...

Been puttering at things all winter in the enclosed house and my wife has had no objection and she is allergic ...

Re: PH18 Build in North Dallas

T a water level system is very simple. Clear tubing. Colored water. Put water in tubing. Hold one end at where you want level to be hold other end to where level will be and mark. I should add to calibrate hold ends together and mark them when water is level.

Re: S3 or Sterling on Table Top?

During my build, I immediately had a similar problem on one of the knees, but I'm pretty sure it was because I didn't give it a good wipedown after masking it for the white paint around it. If you look real close, you can see some tape lines in the peeled area. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/use...
