Crabby Patti2 C17

Post by mohrscott » Thu Dec 06, 2018 2:12 pm

Started C17 in Port Orchard, WA on December 1, 2018. Will be interested to see launch date. Forum, Jeff and Reid have been great to work with, thanks for your help. Trying to make best use of garage space and not have a bunch of material stored for future use. Molds cut from OSB, bought 5 sheets of 9mm HYDROTEK, Meranti, BS 1088 RULES 7 PLY from Edensaw Lumber, using System Three SilverTIp; both companies within an easy drive.
Transom and clamp boards cut, started laminating today. After that will go get 6mm hull plywood and make those panels before building strongback.

Technical question...Does Meranti mean "multiple slivers" or "wear gloves"?

You might not realize it but you are very lucky having east access to plywood and fiberglass supplies. Allows you to buy as needed instead of all at once and over stressing on mistakes

Looking forward to your build :)

Both! The wood has very small slivers that will go quickly into your skin, even a light rub along the edge will get you.

Congrates on the start!

Reid; I have large sheets 236/2 thru 236/10; ten total. I am looking for the bow mold, is it on my sheets or am I missing something....? I saw on the forum a reference to 236/11?

and yes we have so many boat builders in the Pacific Northwest that that resources are readily accessible. I bought System Three epoxy from Kern Hendricks in 1986 when he was working out of a space in Ballard. I think he was mixing it in his kitchen!

From the designer.
There was a 236/11.
You don't really need a bow mold for that boat because frame A is very close to the bow. It would be difficult to mess it up, the shape will be perfect IF frame A is located properly. You"ll understand when you plank, the plywood must be pulled hard around frame A. What matters is the distance from frame A to the tip of the bow: 514 mm or 20.25" (20-1/4").
You"ll see how tight it is there, a bow mold would be in the way but you can try one.

Thanks. I will skip the bow mold. I don't have it printed at full size, so can't build it anyway. Would be nice to just include the dimensions sometime. So far everything makes sense. Biggest challenge is trying to keep up on the mess, lots of plastic tarps and scraps of wood.
