Re: New member from oregon

Remember to drill oversized holes, you'll want to encapsulate the holes before installing them.

Looking good.

Re: Mini Laser-Cut Boat

There was a discussion on these puzzle joints a while back, and I think there was a Zip built with them. I think one of the Eastern marine plywood sources (CLC?) offers this kind of joint.

Re: New Member

Hi, Get yourself a few hand chisels, and they will make quick work of adjust your batten notches. Try to fit your battens and keel even wit the frames, it will save time in fairing. As far as your concern over the sheers and chines being cut too short, I think 12' is long enough to wrap around an 11...

Re: Aussie Gentry

Looks great. I like the wooden windshield brackets, they are a nice alternative to cast metal.

Re: Squirt Finish Line

Hi Jim, I wanted a smooth deck, so I went with epoxy and microballoons. This allowed me overfill the seams and sand them even with the deck. I just completed my Squirt back in September, so I can't say it will hold up over time. The epoxy mix was pretty straight forward to apply once the deck was ta...

Re: Squirt build, Snowy Mountains, Australia

Hi Shaun, I struggled a bit with the thicknesses of the different timbers. I ended up assuming that all thicknesses were rough dimensions, and the final piece will be ~1/4" thinner. There were a few exceptions, like you noticed for the sheers and chines. My frames are all 3/4" thick. The b...
