OB19 build in Texas - I accidentally deleted my gallery They're trying to restore.

Post by Steven » Mon Sep 07, 2009 12:06 am

Started my build today, though I haven't purchased the plywood or Epoxy yet. I'll be picking up the plywood in the coming days and ordering the Epoxy kit on the 15th. I picked up some OSB and cut out the temp frames. Tomorrow I'll cut out the bow mold and build the jig frame. It will be on wheels. My garage is about 19 1/2' long so it's going to be tight. Will do most of the work with the door open the boat rolled partially out.



The bottom frame is not as close to rectangular as it seems. The camera can really distort angles.

Looking forward to watching an OB19 come together. Are you building it exactly as planned or a modified version?

Good deal, another Texas thread 8) I used the castors on the frame thing too and it works well. The more $'s you spend on the casters the easier it rolls. Ain't that how it goes.

Says happy labor day Dougster

Still deciding on some of the details. It's gonna be a CC. Not decided on cooler seat with swing back or nice leaning post with cooler under it. Console will be ~30" wide. Seat in front with baitwell underneath. Will extend front deck and rear deck some for casting. Will decide how much for sure after getting the hull righted.

Built the rolling build jig. Ordered the Epoxy Kit. Hoping to head to Houston on friday to buy the plywood. I work a 4x10 so I have a lot of time to build each week. If I get the wood on Friday, I'll get the pieces cut out and some glued together(edit. No gluing afterall. Epoxy won't be here until next week. DUH) this weekend. I'll finish gluing up the pieces next week and have it stitched together in 3. I figure that will be about 70 hrs. labor. I'm shooting for a splash in under 6 months. Really want to be on the water for Spring Striper fishing. It's too windy on the big lakes for the GV11 to be comfortable and dry.

The GV11 is being sold and the OB19 is too big for the garage, so the wife will get to park her car in the garage as soon as this is done. She may be more motivated than me. :) I'll add pictures at milestones instead of a complete step by step, as it will be hard to beat Larry's build thread for completeness. I'm also going to give advanced estimates for how long I think things will take, as above. Then we can all get a laugh at how ridiculous I am when it comes to optimistic time estimates. :)

Advice and suggestions welcome.

Good to hear there's another OB19 in the works - I've got the ply and epoxy already, but I'm going to be about 6 weeks behind your start date. (finishing restoring another boat).
Anyway, I wanted to put the livewell in the seat in front of the console also, like you mentioned. However, how are you going to run the pipes? especially the drain pipe?

I guess my question is: how are you going to get the well to drain and still have the overboard drain pipe/hole above water? For this reason alone I was planning on putting the livewell in the back - but the weight forward would be nice...

I'll get my thread going in 4 weeks or so, hopefully we can help each-other.
Completed : OB19, CC14, GV10.

Took off with the wife to Houston at 11:30am for the plywood. Rained off and on the whole day and of course poured when we got home at 8:00 pm.

Sat for a bit until it slowed up. There's a boat in here somewhere. The GV11 is going to loose it's home tomorrow.

Haven't given it much thought yet but it's doable. Lot's of boats have them. As long as the cockpit is above the water line, the water in the live well will drain. I will probably run a drain tube right under the cockpit floor and out the transom. A shut off valve at the transom. However, I've yet to research it so that may be a bad idea.

Look forward to seeing your build start.

Started cutting plywwod today. First thing I built a 4'x8' frame out of 2x4's which lay on my rolling table. So I have a waist height table for cutting the plywood on. It rained all day so I couldn't lay out the sides and bottoms. My garage is 19' long so I need to hang out the 3rd sheet of plywood for marking. Ugh!!! I also need the door open so I can rip the stringers on my Table Saw. Gonna rain tomorrow too. Double Ugh!!! I'd like to have everything cut out my Monday afternoon. UPS says my epoxy will be here on Tuesday. :)

The rain has slowed me up but I've made some progress. I have everything cut out except the hull panels and stringers. I'll knock those out tomorrow and will be ready for glue. The hull panels can be cut two at a time, so I'll only measure and mark one side for the bottom and side panels. I'll stack and cut to get duplicates. I rearranged the garage to I'll have room to rip the stringer blanks. That will only take about 15 minutes. Shouldn't be too long a day.

Here's a view of the cockpit sole layout. Lowes or HD didn't have a 20' piece of PVC pipe. Used a coupler which was ok for the sole, but will not be fair enough for my liking for the hull panels. Tomorrow I'll go on a mission to find a 20' stick. I must say, I like using the PVC for a batten. I used a piece of 20' molding for the GV11. PVC is much more manageable.

Here's a pick of my rolling workbench with the 2x4 cutting frame on top.
