Peter, don't mean to get off the subject but I see your build video on YouTube is labeled cs25+3. Did you stretch it 3 feet? I'm interested in a cs for my next build after the xf20 I'm currently building but would rather build a 28 ft boat. The 110 gal fuel capacity on the 25 is just not enough for the Texas coast and its gotta have twins. A 28 ft boat could hold the extra fuel for long runs off shore.

BTW. This one looks like it's coming along great! You build a lot faster than I do.

Thx Glossieblack this helps a lot, the intention is not to reinvent the wheel and stay with marine grade stuff only

Thx Craig and Larry, yes Larry that Dutch mentality keeps following me :D but the start of a build always moves along quickly.

No worries, no I didn't stretch it, the 3" is the bracket/swim platform size, some or maybe all manufactures even include the anchor pulpit in the overall length, I don't think that's fair, that's why I labeled it 25+3 instead of 28. About fuel consumption I can troll a whole (long) day not even using 1 full thank (58 gallon) Don't know if by law you need 2 OB'S but if not I would go with a single and a kicker.

Well here you have some more pics :P

Frames filleted and tabbed to the inner stringers, not the best work I have done but will do for now, decided to go for outer stringers also, I think/hope it's gonna be strong.

Thanks for the info on the cs peter.

This one is coming along quickly! Can't wait to see some skin go on this hull. Looks like it's going to be a real nice boat.

Peter,
This is one very cool boat, speaking of skin, how are you going to determine the size and shape of the plywood panels? (Sorry if u discussed this earlier in your thread)

Thx

No problem Joe I didn't discuss it anyway, I'm planning to put a sheet on like in the picture and then run a long dowel along the inner, outer chine and sheer then mark it.

Good plan!
I was thinking I would have to draw everything up on CAD and unfold the panels then dimension them up, lots of hours of work, I like your idea better!

This may give me the incentive to design and build my own rum runner.

Thx

Peter, do you prefer a marinized petrol or diesel engine?
Currently building Jacques Mertens ST21 "Skinnydip". Boating adventures: Splash testing and using 'Skinnydip, as a basis of further building refinement; Adams 44’ sailing sloop "Great Sandy" (cruising and maintaining); Iain Oughtred Feather Pram "Mini Dip" (building); Jacques Mertens R13 "Wood Duck" (built and due for maintenance).
