Re: FF in Kathleen GA

Life Happens.

I haven't quit building, but between the house repairs and being out the door a lot, we have been on an extended hold. We also got PCS notification, so we may be going to Germany, Alaska, or Panama City. Who knows? Either way, I will need to have the hull on by Jan to move her.

Re: FF in Kathleen GA

So, we've had some massive water damage in the house and my wood working business has been keeping me super busy as well. On top of all that, I am heading on a quasi deployment to SC and haven't gotten the flyer where I want her before I move her. That being said, I am super close to putting the fir...

Thanks to all who checked on us.

Double layer ply vs single...

Double layer ply vs single... So the bottom of the flyer asks for 2 layers of 1/4 instead of 1 of 1/2. I know the question has been asked of some, but to get a fresh opinion, which is better? On the one hand, there are no single points of weakness in the hull as 1/4 is offset from the second, but on...

Re: FF in Kathleen GA

To expand the question...screws between keel and sheer clam laminations (#8 @ 6"?), and then more screws through the hull layers and the laminations (#8 @ 3"?)...that's a lot of screws, why?

Re: FF in Kathleen GA

If the keel is laminated with epoxy...why would you need screws from the bottom?
