Re: CE-Marking of a Squirt

Hello again Merlin, I also found this on Selway-Fisher's site: - "H. Compliance with the RCD and other Rules 15. In the main, home boat builders do not have to concern themselves with too many rules and regulations. Canoes and craft under 2.4m (8’) are exempt from the RCD (Europe’s rules for the bui...

Re: CE-Marking of a Squirt

Hola Merlin, CE marking is part of the European Recreational Craft Directive. You should only require CE marking (Declaration of Conformity) if you are going to sell it within 5 years; as an amateur builder, it's pretty much just a statement that the boat complies with the directive & other relevant...

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

That's great work Aleksey!

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

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.

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...
