Old School PH16******Splashed

Post by super dave » Thu Jun 23, 2011 10:03 pm

Posting a few images of the initial setup for my PH16 build. I'm building from a pre-cut kit I received last week from Joel. The quality of the kit is excellent and makes for a quick start. The kit does have a few variations from the basic plans including full height clamping boards for the transom. After dealing with some of the geometry issues I elected to copy the design of Joel's low shear and create slots for the ends of the stringers at the transom, this gives the proper transom angle and dimensions at the deck and will hopefully aid in construction once I flip the hull. Last picture shows some initial fitting of the bottom sections to measure for backing blocks that fit between the stringers. Comments and suggestions are welcome and appreciated. FYI, I constructed the back and uprights for the jig from the basic plans prior to receiving the kit and the pre-cut bulkhead and stringers fit together perfectly.

Not sure but are you sure your bow mold and bulkhead A are dead center with the rest of the frames?

Optical illusion at the bow mold, I used an idea I saw on the forum to use fishing line to set a center line down the jig and everything is maintained in correct alignment. For some reason the images are being cut off on the right side when I post giving a bit of distortion, I'll see if I can fix that in future posts. Thanks for the comments and feedback.

Okay must be the camera angles, just checking because from the bow it looked to far to the right and from the stern to far to the left that's why. Maybe an other idea for when the build is becoming heavier is putting crossmembers ( hope that's the correct English name) between the legs ( those on casters)

Superdave,

Welcome to the forum. It's great to have another Phantom build :lol: As peter-curacao mentioned, on your strongback, you may want to add some lower 2X4's lengthwise, connecting your legs near the casters. As your boat gets heavier, there will be a lot of leverage on the strongback legs, as you roll it in and out of the garage. Any movement of your strongback legs may cause your boat to not be level. :doh: The more you reinforce your strongback now, the less potential problems you will have later.

Hmmm, Looks to me like you live in LaMancha. Good chance I may have built your house. I lived in the acreage. Corner lot on canal on 51st. and 130TH. A- Frame style house. Moved to Ocala area 21 yrs. ago.My PH16 is in photo section. (Sport'N A woody) One suggestion. Keep it simple and keep it light.Great hull design.

OK you guys have scared me into adding another member to the legs of my jig lengthwise. Once I flip the hull I plan on cutting the legs down to have a better height to work inside.

Stickystuff, good eyes, it is indeed La Mancha (west side of Cortes Ave), the house is till holding up strong and weathered three hurricanes, so if you did build it, we thank you for keeping us safe. My "old school" theme had your boat in mind and I definitely plan on keeping it simple and light. I'm going to use an old Mercury Thunderbolt 50 I scavenged from one of my other boats to power her. That motor has served me well for many years, it's very light and I hope it will have enough power to move the boat at a reasonable speed.

If you don't add a ton of compartments and a lot of extra items that you don't need it should come out around 750 lbs. The 50 Merc should get you around 30 MPH> My neice lives close to you. Her name is Roxanne Edenfield. She works at post office in RPB or Wellington.Was in Wellington last time I lived down their. :doh:
