C19 in Richmond, VA

Post by Dan_Smullen » Fri Aug 23, 2019 10:19 pm

Plans in hand for a few weeks now. Scheming and planning. Sourcing material, and starting at the beginning, which I believe is the strongback.

Because I'm a cad/cnc nerd, i did a quick model of the strong back and 2 piece gussets I'll cut out to keep the vertical stanchions plumb and rigid. A nest of 20 on the cnc will be a quick project.

Probably overkill, but I'm anticipating a slow build and don't want things to sag. I've ordered LSLs, (Laminated Strand Lumber) for the beams. Spaced 40" apart so the outside of the verticals align with the insides of the stringers. Next pics should be the real thing!

Welcome to the forum. Good call on the laminated lumber.
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).

As long as you are planning for the strongback I would think long and hard about mounting casters to it. Big ones that are overkill. Being able to move the boat around with little effort is a wonderful thing.

Exactly what’s on my mind. Garage is just barely big enough to hold it, but the ability to move it around so the kids can still reach their bikes is key.

Big nice castors for sure. My LB22 build took years and two of the castors flattened out a bit.

LSLs in the house, and big, beefy castors procured!

Question regarding drawing for Station B...

There are two horizontal lines in the area of the sole, but neither is marked with a dimension from the keel or baseline. Which line is the bottom of the sole, and what is a dimension to it?

Thanks.

The drawing is small and kind of blurry, but the designer asks that we not post any copies of the drawings, just refer to the plan page in question. Anybody with access to the plans can look to see what you're talking about.

The base line is normally the bottom of the sole, that's all the help I can offer. :?
