DE 24ish

Post by Tom S. » Tue Apr 09, 2019 6:51 am

Building a 24-6 scaled down from the 25’ plans with some other modifications as well. Not sure that I could / can build and blog at the same time time but at least I will try to update as I can. Have literally learned so much from so many of you that I think it’s only fair to try to contribute something as well.

First thing I need to do is learn to post a pic.
Failed miserably at it !
Working from an iPad
Uploaded a pic into builders gallery but when I tried moving it kept getting error that said size could not be read ?

I never bother with a gallery.

I just started a build thread and then add attachments to each post.

The galleries are a mystery to me.
My boat build is here -------->

or better:

Here is a great youtube video posted by one of our builders (Peter from Curacao), that explains how to post a picture on the forum.

Okay have had the prints now for a couple of years.

So here we go...
Bought the plywood locally in Massachusetts last August during tax free weekend

Planning on using a Armstrong bracket so I incorporated this upturn to the two inside stringers

Needed just a little more room in the garage
Prefabbed these panels and added a 4’ bump out to the front of my door ( wife still needs to park on her side)
