Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

Next up I laminated the anchor hatch frame pieces out of 2 3/4" layers of douglass fir. vlbCKnD It took a ton of pressure to get the fir to bend this much. I should have used more thinner layers but I didn't have enough fir. I noticed putting enough clamping pressure was pulling up the edges of my m...

Re: camber for the deck OB17

If you want a deck to have camber, the frames it sit's on just needs to be curved appropriately, so when you glue it down it takes the curve. It's a little trickier if you have a hatch in the cambered deck, which I'm currently working through for my anchor hatch on a curved bow deck.

Re: Door material?

Yes, sawstop. The biggest commercial model they make. I really need to buy jobsite portable version. We’ve had one confirmed finger save about 3 years ago. One worker was watching another cutting a panel. The saw operator stuck his thump directly into the whirring 10x60 tcp blade. It blew the blade...

Re: Gap between frame and bottom

Is the frame cut mistakenly short or is it not fitting all the way to the bottom? Can't tell from the picture.

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

A milestone indeed! It all looks great. The triangles in the corners look good. I was going to suggest a piece of quarter round large enough to make the transition, but the angles add a nice touch. Remarkable the strength at the frame less supports. Not much flex while your standing on it in the pi...

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

Also needed to address the rub rail corners. FUh6SRz Made up 2 triangles for the back... oWFkI2A and a larger piece for the front out of 2 pieces. 8iLW7CC To get a good fit on the triangles I covered them in pencil and rubbed them in position. Wherever I saw transfer I chiseled away until it was tra...

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

The inside hull is pretty fair right now, other than around the frame bases, so I don't want to be dropping epoxy on it. I used the taped masking film to protect the entire inside up the the frame supports. I find it to be surprisingly economical considering what just painters tape and other plastic...

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

In my gemlux order I got a new drain plug that is captive and can be tightened from the inside. Should help if I ever pull the put the boat in with an open drain plug move. It's a different size from the previous one and also angled up requiring some changes. After expanding the hole I covered the p...

Re: Panga 20 Build

I think it's a lot easier to tape in the stringers in one long go rather than working around each frame. You'll just need to take a little off the frames to make room for the fillets before you add them back in.

Re: FS 17 - Raised Sheer

I worked on the bow deck some. I need to fit the cleat and fairleads while leaving enough space for an anchor locker hatch large enough to actually fit an anchor. I played with the layout and it left about a 13" opening once you take into account the size of the hatch frame, which should be enough. ...
