Sk14 build

Post by PapaDave » Sun Feb 11, 2018 6:29 pm

Started a few weeks ago and the design is clean and efficient.I altered a few small things but 99 percent from the plans. Working on a small wood console/grab bar to hold some essentials and mounting a 1986 six hp evinrude short shaft.

Great idea putting those hand hold slots on the transom. Looks good to me.

Attached cleats and cut out a large lure rack for inside of a yeti bucket. My console/grab bar is designed around the bucket dimensions and will be used as my main storage area for fishing gear. The transom was altered a bit. I added an extra 1/4 inch above the sole to match the one inch wide side rails and add a little more strength for the grab handles. Also put in a slot for the knees to tie into the transom. Thanks for the feedback.

Great idea, I want one.
Reid, how about you cut one round holder like that with some of the CNC kits? There is sometimes enough ply left.

PS: my bucket will be a Walmart one, not a Yeti. :D

I hope your builders can use it. I hate to waste nice plywood. It fits nicely in a Home Depot bucket also.

That is crazy good! Looks like one big stamp cutter punched everything out at once! Is there any way you could give a few details on how you make them so near perfect?
