Re: 3/8 plywood to 1/4 plywood

Agree with Matt. I would not use plywood thinner than that stipulated by the design. If you are genuinely concerned about bending 3/8" plywood, you might consider using 2 layers of 1/4". A slightly over-built boat is no big deal but an under-built boat could be a concern. Whatever you deci...

Re: Motor for flying saucer

As a point of interest, Yamaha released an all-new F25 outboard in 2017 that has received little other than glowing praise (in the reviews I have read). Seems like a very sound choice.

Re: My (Sort Of) Sea Knight Build

Hi Fraser - Great looking build! Impressed by your willingness to innovate and make the boat you want. I'm curious about how you accomplished the 4" widening of the beam on your Sea Knight. Did you just carry the existing hull bottom lines 2" further out at the two chines (with correspondi...

Re: Single engine Sea Angler (wing motor)

Glen L's notes on Sea Angler indicate that a single engine is optional. Great choice, BTW!

Re: Gooday from Queensland the sunshine state of Australia

Hi Reid - Any updates on this HUGELY interesting build? What a monster of a boat for a home build! Like many others, I'm a big fan of Gung Ho (and cruisers in general) and excited to see a build thread on the forum. Cheers, Doug

Re: Overniter in SC

FWIW - Here's what one Glen L builder (of a Flying Saucer) did to address the same issue: "Boat is glassed. I used 17 oz. bi-axial glass on the bottom for abrasion resistance. The boat will be run up on gravel and sand quite frequently. I did the bottom in two sheets of glass overlapped 8 inche...

Thanks. Was just curious. Fantastic looking build. A real big boat that looks like she's going to turn out to be a real beauty with countless innovations!

Re: New Member from Orlando Florida

Many people have hulls built by professionals and then finish off the rest of the boat themselves. There is no 'right' way to go about it - only what is right for you and your family! If the Boat Gods decide to shine a little light on me one of these days, I will be choosing between a smaller Glen L...

Re: Time to come out of the closet, True Grit

Your project is inspiring and extremely creative and original. Hopefully, you will enjoy this boat for many years. Do I have this right: The boat has been extended to 29.5' plus an additional 2' for the swim step, making a total of 31.5'? Or, the boat is a total of 29.5' in length including the swim...

Re: Right classic design for Chesapeake Bay

Check out Kona Kai for an interesting option. It has a deep-v hull, has been built as a runabout with stunning results (follow the photos), and also has the gorgeous arching sheerline that many builders of classic boats are looking for. With a little creativity and the right exterior finish, it coul...

Re: Leme rephrase my question. by Newbe-CS-20

I have to admit, I like CS 20 too! It looks like a terrific boat. One good build could open the floodgates! Does CS 20 also have more deadrise than Cabin Skiff? One is rated for up to 40 hp; the other for up to 175 hp. Surely they are VERY different boats despite being similar in looks and concept?

Re: Roberta's Torpedo

FWIW- In my view, the upper fin on the hatch looks just right and perfectly complements the other design elements back there. Simply a brilliant piece of work overall and a true inspiration. Cheers!

Re: Time to come out of the closet, True Grit

Curt- Your boat is so interesting, innovative and great looking that I, for one, would love to see more photos! I'd guess that others would, too. I'd be really interested in how you're going to power her, as well. Once again, an amazing build. Good luck with it! Doug
