Started Hull for sale

Greetings! I am reluctantly selling my project due to another baby and simply no time to work on this project. The family is awesome, but does not give me any time to partake in boat building like I was hoping. It can be seen at my blog - BrunswickNoah.blogspot.com It is a sturdily constructed frame...

Re: Chine Template?

plywood it is! thanks for the idea of 2 layers of 1/2" that will be nice to avoid scarfing. I have beefed up most of the dimensions as it is so ill not worry about strength so much. I am planning on making the hll thickness 3/4" inch - overkill?

Re: Chine Template?

any thoughts on using 3/4" or 1" ply for the chine? I think oak would be stronger ultimately.

Re: Chine Template?

Great thanks!! I somehow never thought of notching the cardboard at the frames to slide the material in - wow. Now I am wondering if I should be allowed to build a boat! Did you allow the chine to come inside past the logs a bit for added strength? Then the chine would surround the frames a bit and ...

Re: Chine Template?

It is a Glen-L. Rebel Tug. There is no patter for the chine. Also, there really can't be due to the fact that you would have to be so incredibly perfect with your frames and all to be able to use a chine template. Plus the hull is stretched. Thanks tho!

Chine Template?

Hi guys and gals. I am building the Rebel Tug (elongated) and am approaching the part where I build the chine on the inner and outer logs. This tug has a high performance planning hull and the chine I am implementing will be roughly 5" wide to 3 ish or so at the stem. I want to do this out of 5...

Re: Boat On Trailer

Looks great - good job! Over the past 20 years I have trailered 13 boats and countless boat and landscaping trailers of all kinds. I would say that in my experience you should have no more than 200-300 pounds of tongue weight unless your boat is more then 3500 pounds. If a smaller single axle traile...

Re: Surface mould

All good thoughts. There are a lot of thoughts on mold... I know bleach is a great killer. I have no info on the residual effects of bleach and epoxy/fiberglass/paint. I know denatured alcohol has no residue, and will kill anything it comes in contact with. A good respirator is a fabulous idea no ma...

Batten placement

I'm wondering if anyone has gone the way of attaching battens on top of the frames as opposed to notching the frames and sinking them in. After reading Glen L's book, it doesn't sound like there would be too much change in structural integrity. I am considering this for a few reasons - one being dra...

Re: Inside hull paint

Amen to that. I am wondering if I will be using primer on any part of my boat... When I get closer to painting the hull I'll start my serious research on how to paint a hull over epoxy.

Re: Access areas in the sole

All great thoughts. I had also considered going with a totally enclosed below deck with poly spray foam, but have decided that as alluring a thought as it may be, you are right in realizing that there is probably no such thing as a "dry" bilge. I don't want to enclose the below deck knowin...

Re: Access areas in the sole

Yes I am going back and forth between dry and wet. I would prefer a totally dry bilge, but then how do you have access points in the sole? I hate to not have access to the fuel tank. I suppose it wouldn't be too difficult to do a livewell under the sole, as you could epoxy the top of it to the botto...
