Kara Hummer

Post by joemac » Sat Jun 04, 2016 11:33 am

Hopefully this forum is welcome to boat plans from other sources.

The Kara Hummer is a 14' sneak boat for waterfowl hunting. Much like a wide beam kayak, plenty of pictures all over the web.

So, I am altering the plans which are not s&g and use all dimensional lumber. I am converting all the components to ply. It wont be technically s&g but pretty close.

Question; when I have my ribs cut, long strips for gunnels, and strip for keel in conventional s&g would they be epoxied before assembly? So, epoxy, dry, then glue the pieces, or glue pieces then epoxy?

Not really but we give support if you use our products. I am going to reply but first I"ll move this to the Free plans section. I will rename that section Free Plans and others.

The best way to get all that info is to buy one of our duck boat plans and use the specifications I give for that type of boat.
I am not joking or teasing you.
You pay not only for the plywood drawings but also for the fiberglass scantlings and other techniques that we developed.
It is worth every cent.

About your question: yes, epoxy coat the flat parts but no for the hull panels.
