Re: Tom's Tahoe

Tom, it looks fabulous.

Could you please remind us what kind of wood you used for the planking?

Re: Tuffy Build

Evan: I used 2 jigs to drill the hole for the bow eye on my build. I drilled through the stem from the inside. I needed to use 2 jigs because the bolt on my bow eye wasn't long enough to go all the way through the stem, so I needed to countersink the area on the inside where the nut and washer were ...

Re: centerline of stem question

Dkah: As Billy said, the center line is at half the thickness of the stem. If you haven't assembled the halves of the stem yet, one way to make the center line obvious is to paint the edge of one of halves of the stem in whatever paint color you happen to have around. After assembling the halves, yo...

Re: what tool do i need for this job?

Dkah: From what I can tell from the pictures I've seen, it appears that the Sissy Do is much like a 13 foot version of the (10 foot) Imp that I built. The plans for the Imp also call for the stem to be shaped initially on a 45 degree angle. The way I handled it on my build was with a belt sander. My...

Re: hello from canada

Welcome to the forum, DKAH. Ask away with your questions; I'm sure someone will be able to help you sort out whatever it is that you're finding confusing.

What part of Newfoundland are you from?

Re: Crackerbox Build

gf: Over the past 3 years, I've looked at several different designs as possibilities for my next build, one of those being the Crackerbox. As I have gone through my decision making process, one of the factors I've looked at is estimated cost to build. To help me with that, I compiled an Excel file w...

Re: Indiana Pee Wee

Welcome to the forum, and best of luck with your build!

If you haven't done so yet, I'd recommend you buy a copy of Boat Building with Plywood. It's an excellent reference.

Re: Monaco Restart

That is one fine looking boat!

Could you remind us, please, what you used for paint on the bottom. I really like that shade of blue.

Re: Tampa Fl, Checking In.

Jeff, I've made some progress coming to decisions about what I want to do, but don't expect to begin my build until late fall 2018 or early winter 2019. I do plan to build a Roustabout, stretched to ~18 1/2 feet. That's about all the boat I can comfortably fit into the space I have available in the ...

Re: Michigan Squirt Build

Jim, she looks awesome! It's kind of like stepping back in time, seeing a '57 Johnson looking the way it did when it was brand new. Thanks for keeping us updated on how your engine rebuild has gone.
