Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Sanding tent looks great and I like the benches. Great ideas for budding builders out there. I can't believe all the dust and wood shavings I've produce in the last few days rebuilding the hatch scoop on the Torpedo. Sawing, planning, sanding!! I thought I was done with the big messes. :lol: Roberta...

Re: G-14 Dates and Location

It looks great. I was disappointed with my G13 shirt. I ordered the Ladies XL and it was so small I had to give it away. I laid my G12 out and laid the G13 on top. There was at least two inches on both sides of my G12 uncovered. Both were marked XL.

Re: FRAME LAYOUT ISSUE

It depends on if you are using the single gusset that goes between lapped frame pieces or the double gussets that sandwich the butted frame pieces. Either way is acceptable.

Re: Roberta's Torpedo

After 5 boating seasons, it's time to give the Glen L some attention and maintenance. Fuel filters, oil and filter, water pump impeller were number one. And flushed out the seawater side of the cooling system. Next year I will be changing the engine side coolant. I will also be repacking the rudder ...

Stringer extensions are added, but they are offset per plans for the forward frames and are 4/4 x 4". The plywood is beveled and butt...

Re: New from Western NY

Welcome Aboard!! We were just up in 1000 Islands last month for the ACBS International Show. That place could certainly inspire the boat builder in anyone. Good luck with the Jet Squirt. Post pictures.

Re: Frame construction

Look closely as there is most likely a floor timber. I may only be a line across the pattern. You would not just butt the parts to the stem.

Re: A couple new builder questions

When building a boat, you will need a table or space large enough to lay out the largest frame in order to properly assemble it. Use the patterns to draw the full size frame on it using transfer paper or use a pin to punch tiny holes in the shape of the frame. Then the framing can be aligned on the ...
