Re: Plywood damaged.

That’s what I figured. Almost like a drywall patch. Scab in a new piece. And feather out the epoxy. How much of an overlap on the glass cloth you think I need? I really don’t want to have to paint those flames again. Takes the patience of a saint taping that off

Plywood damaged.

So on my second trip out a pair of deer fawns run out in the road... see the first one make it and the second one put a hole about the size of a soft ball in my plywood Hull. Framing, chimes and spray rail look to be fine and only the plywood is compromised. Suggestions on a fix?

Re: Steam bending mahogany

1x8 KD Mahogany. Three days soaking in a solution of water and fabric softener. One hour in the box at 200 degrees. Out of box compression straps applied, and wrapped in poly. Shout out to the queen. Slow bent and cooked on the jig fifteen minutes. Bent like a champ.

Re: Steam bending mahogany

That's what I just heard down at the cape cod boatbuilders show. I was also told that setting the piece with compression straps, drawing is crude but anyways it goes like this. By setting end blocks and comnecting the two with steel straps, as simple as the stuff they bundle lumber with at cheapo de...

Re: Steam bending mahogany

It was most definitely kiln dried. That's why I was soaking it but some reading I have been doing says the lignin had all ready been set in the kiln. Thought about pushing through the thickness planer and milling it down to half inch. I saw an online video where someone used a poly sleeve and bent a...

Re: Steam bending mahogany

It's mahogany decking leftover from a farmers porch I built over the summer. Soaked for three days and then in the steamer at 200 degrees for an hour.

I understand that they won't stretch what I need is a solution to making this bend.

Re: Steam bending mahogany

When the boards first go in temp immediately drops to like 180. I assume it's the cooler wood absorbing the heat takes about five minutes or so to get back to 200 then I start the clock at an hour.

Steam bending mahogany

So I am attempting to steam bend 3/4 mahogany for the carlings on my malahini build. They are roughly 9'6" and ripped to 5 3/4". My box gets up to 200 degrees, I placed a meat thermometer at the exit end to make sure. They bend right around my jig but invariably they end up cracking. I am using 3/4 ...

Re: motor board for malahini

Are those bolts in the right position? I countersunk and through bolted the knee to the keel. There is never going to be any serious force vertically on that knee. So isn't bolting it to the keel the resist forces on the x plane more logical???

Re: Outboard Transoms - Let's Talk

My answer to this was why cut a frame an infill the majority in the motor well when you could make an lvl out of solid ply? I added a peice of 1/2" ply and ended up with a 2" wide lvl.

Re: Question about transom knee and motor board on Malahini

Absolutely with the wheels on bottom. I cut g transom square on the outline. As the sides taper inward the protruding long point can be planed off and sanded smooth. I also skipped the transom frame and used a solid peice of three quarter ply as you have to infill the majority of for the motor well....
