Re: Eric's C21

Ok cool. That makes sense to me and what I guessed, but didn't want to assume :)

Re: Eric's C21

Looking good as always! Once both sides are leveled I'll pull fillets on the bottom and lay two layers of glass tape. I didn't follow this part.... You are going to glass tape the batons in place? All of them or just the foam ones? Is this something that's required for the bigger boat? Hopefully it ...

Re: FS 17 BOM

The study plans tell what weight the waterline is calculated at, if I remember it is around 1450lbs and the basic to plans built boat is 350lbs The designated waterline is the top of the stringers/bulkheads and bottom of the sole, assuming that weight at the top of the sole gives you an extra 'fudge...

Re: FS 17 BOM

I havent launched mine yet. It is getting close, but fall/winter has put my project on hold till spring. From my research it should be ok for those conditions, but again I don't have any experience with it. My use will be a very large lake, so a bit different, but for sure you wont have any issues o...

Re: FS 17 BOM

When you buy the plans your digital version will include both metric and imperial. The glass and tapes are 12oz (I dont know metric sorry) I believe the cloth is 50 inches wide. The BOM is the bare minimum you would need if building with experience to plans with none of the options (console, gunwale...

Re: Travel cradles

Narfi, that is a pretty cool lift truck!!! Jeff Those are pretty common up here, although I don't think I have seen one where the sides of the lift power extended out like that before. Ours is on a ball hitch that we hook up to a tractor and the tractors hydraulics. Our width adjustments are purely...

Re: Travel cradles

Can the two hulls fit side by side on the road?

If so, how strong are your sockets? Could you build transport beams that integrate with your trailer?

Sort of a road worthy spin off of this concept,

Re: Users Online?

I think typically there is a time range setting that can be used so it says right now but in reality it means in the last 5 minutes, last hour, or whatever its set at. The other huge boost any site sees is crawler bots scanning pages and cataloging them. (from google and the likes) That said, I have...

Re: Wet on wet

There are gel mixes, but I don't have any experience with them. Some of the guys on here have used them and may chip in.
I've just used wood flour, it is cheap and easy, so I figure if it works why spend more on something else.
