Re: Building the Squirt in St. Petersburg (Russia)

That's great work Aleksey!

How did you fix the wood to the steel? Epoxy?

Regards

Re: Wood Boat Porn (work appropriate)

You could achieve the look of all these boats by using the Bolero or Bandido hull designs & making changes above the waterline and aft of the transom. Both these designs are pretty flexible on power & drive line. Get the plans and make some rough scale models from card/balsa etc., (or on CAD if you ...

Re: Team

Same here - at £158 (around US$211) per sheet I wasn't very impressed to find voids, even if they were few and far between. Ironically, the £26 sheet of 3/4" WBP B/BB exterior ply I bought for my shed roof didn't appear to have any voids when I cut it. Makes you think, doesn't it? Even so, I'm stic...

Barrel Zip Indefinitely on the shelf!

http://www.glen-l.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=27137&hilit=barrel+zip I’ve decided to indefinitely shelve my Zip build and it’s all Josh Burk’s fault! (OK not really) I was originally planning to work my way through a number of builds – Zip, Overniter, Tahoe-Overniter, but the house & multiple jo...

Nicely finished Tahoe for sale in the UK

Nice Tahoe for sale in the UK, bit of a Riva theme - Says it's manufactured by Williams Powerboats, but the only Williams I can find in the UK makes Jet tenders; maybe a one off.

https://www.boat24.com/uk/powerboats/wi ... il/316098/

Check out the price - £74,950 ($100,535)!

Re: Squirt Finish Line

JIm,

Check out Josh's Youtube series - He has quite an in-depth explanation of the processes he tried on his deck before settling on the best method.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Just to throw in a curve-ball on cabin ideas, how about raising the deck: -

Re: Lengthen the overnighter

I was proposing to stretch an Overniter to 18', (See Super Overniter thread) - I checked with Gayle, and she said the recommendation not to stretch it was not a structural issue, but rather the complications of the raised sheer for a beginner; Ove Pederson stretched his 200mm (just under 8"). It's n...

Re: Tahoe 23

The old-school tool-bags that lay out flat when you put them on the floor are great - Tools spread out so you can see them, easy to toss tools onto them instead of putting them where they'll roll off/fall through/forget where you put them, and you can just grab the loop handles & everything is gathe...

Re: Inboard/Outboard range of motion.

I don't know anything about it, but I once saw an out-drive on a UK river cruiser, which rotated around the input driveshaft longitudinal axis, where it exits the transom; hinging upwards, sideways instead of rearwards as normally seen on other out-drives. I don't know if I've explained that effecti...

Re: Which plan to emulate a Chris Craft Capri?

Those plans are available for free on Svensons.com - they were originally posted in a magazine back in the day. Classicwoodenboatplans have "just" modeled them up in CAD, (this involves a fair amount of work) and are selling them on. I've read that the guy is a CAD jockey, not a marine architect or ...
