Re: Building a 21 foot boat in a 21 foot garage

Personally, I would consider building with the stem outward of the garage. Fitting the sheers, chines and plywood to the transom is the easy part... fitting these components to the stem requires a bit more work (and room). Good point made about fitting chines and sheers together and in order to do t...

Seaknight Power

Hello all! I am considering a Seaknight build and was wondering if any one has used a 25hp motor on this design. Would it be way underpowered?

Dory "floating frames"

Hankinson dory designs call for 2x6 "floating bottom" frames. These sit on the keel and battens therefore separating the planking skin from the frames. What are the thoughts on notching the frames to accept the keel and battens thus bringing the plywood into contact with the frame. I understand the ...

Laminating plywood planks.

Hello everyone.
I am hoping to get some hints on laminating plywood planks.
The side (and bottom) planking on the Chunky Dory calls for 2, 1/4"
panels glued together for a total thickness of 1/2".
How is the best way to do this without voids between. Clamps?
Staples?
Many thanks,
Mike

Hi Kelly.
I used the teleflex on my Squirt. Works great... no problem with
tilt but I did need an adapter kit for my 9.9.

Thanks Duane for interesting link... In the islands specialty wood such as oak and mahogany is VERY expensive. Most affordable lumber is ordered for general home construction so the choises are limited. But at least the treated pine is long leaf yellow pine. And sometimes it comes wet, and sometimes...

Presure treated pine

Have just received plans for Chunky Dory (Hankinson) and note a
lot of 2x4's & 2x6's.
Any thoughts on using treated lumber in boat building.
Has any one had any problem with epoxy bonding to treated pine.
Thanks.

Nice job bill!
That "bright" finnish is amazing. Next time (if I can improve on my joinery work, I got to try that! )

Thanks Ron.
You will be happy with the spray rails. Not only drier but smoother ride in a chop.
It was your boat that inspired my paint scheme. Many thanks!

Ken your boat is looking great. The "Gathering" set up is the best... wish I could be there to see that gigantic outboard powering you up the river!
I am considering another build. 1 have the plans for the Double E but will probably settle for one of the Dory designs (with deck house).
Best,
Mike
