Re: Klondike Build

Is it a Glen-L utility Steve? I rode in Mike's a while back at the Gathering. Solid little boat.

Re: New Member Tobias Steinmann - Switzerland

Welcome to the forum. I say build the boat you really want but do get educated about the process. Sounds like you are doing your homework. One thing about an outboard is you'll have more interior space if that's an important consideration for you.

Re: Klondike Build

Probably since it's a tender to add extra protection since it's likely to be abused landing on beaches, rocks, wharfs, etc and then left tied up while going into town for provisions.

Re: Michael's ZIP

Thos look nice and clean. I'm building my dash right now and have no idea where I'm going to put the switches and gauges. I'm not even positive which gauges I want. Good for you planning this far ahead.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

No need for it to be removable in my case. So I'll be glueing it in as soon as I can settle on a bottom profile for it. Then fair the top and make blocking for the battens and strong back.

Bob, I was just thinking the other day how nice I thought your dash looked.

Re: Michael's ZIP

A lot of the designs call for a keel laminated with plywood on the inside. I'm surprised the zip isn't one of them.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Setting the dash in place temporarily. Tilting it at an angle complicates things but I think will be worth it in the end. Time to do a little fairing.

Re: I tried to use a hand saw once....

I think there's a tool list in Boatbuilding with Plywood that's pretty good. The basic tool list is a really good start. One tool not to cheap out on is a decent saber or jig saw. Old hand tools like planes and hand saws can be bought on Ebay and easily restored. Harbor Freight has a surprisingly go...

Re: GERONIMO'S windshield

Bob, those brackets look great. If it were me I might not have them so far outboard of the coamings. It will still look good either way though.
