Re: 1000hr. Zip splash

Hey Josh, My name is Rob and I'm from Australia. Can I just say I have been following your build on YouTube and I am so happy for you getting to launch day. In fact, watching your build has been the main inspiration for me to start my Key Largo which I started at the end of March just gone. http://w...

Re: Key Largo build. Tahmoor (nr. Sydney) Australia

Yeh, that's what I was thinking Jenko. If i'm not mistaken you are the chap who installed the Jag V12 aren't you? How is that going for you? I used to drive an XJS V12. Awesome motor, unless you had to pay for any work on it... :wink: I would like to look at the Jag straight six maybe for this boat....

Re: Key Largo build. Tahmoor (nr. Sydney) Australia

Hey all, Could use some quick advice. I have been very troubled about an engine for this boat and am constantly searching for something affordable. I am not afraid of a bit of work to get something up to scratch (if parts are available). Just noticed this on Gumtree. I know it is not the nice V* rum...

Re: Key Largo build. Tahmoor (nr. Sydney) Australia

Time for an update... So, after prepping the plywood story board from the patterns, I then moved on to generating some card templates using the story board and the information from the plans. http://boatbuilders.glen-l.com/wp-content/gallery/key-largo-by-rob-hamilton-tahmoor-nsw-australia/IMG_201805...

Re: Key Largo build. Tahmoor (nr. Sydney) Australia

Thanks for the advice Peter. I knew in my mind they all needed to be short deck beam stubs as such, just wanted some confirmation. :) So that is frames 2; 3; 4; 5 all with deck beams ending at the carlin point. :mrgreen: And Tom, thanks for your tips too. I will be encapsulating the motor stringers ...

Evening all.

Re: Key Largo build. Tahmoor (nr. Sydney) Australia

Shaun, yes, the guys at Anagote have been great. I am interested in your deck scheme because I too want to have some contrast in my deck planking against the king plank and covering boards at the sheer. Anyway, a few more questions... I am getting my motor stringers finally dimensioned which then al...

Re: Key Largo build. Tahmoor (nr. Sydney) Australia

Hey Tony, thanks for the tip on the Bote Cote and their respective glue. I may give the gel a go but I do want to try my hand at the adding fibre or bead to create glue as well as I have never done any epoxy. I want to get the full experience :) Shaun, once again, thanks for the pointers. During mil...

Re: Key Largo build. Tahmoor (nr. Sydney) Australia

Ok, that's great feedback from you all. Some issues there that I hadn't thought about with regards to endgrain and fitting the chines. I was just looking at it as a stand alone joint. I am going to go ahead with butt joints and gussets as per plan. And some locals too... :) G'day Shaun and John. Goo...

Re: Key Largo build. Tahmoor (nr. Sydney) Australia

Hi all, Just finished an evening of planing and prepping stock for stringers etc. and my mind started drifting... What are peoples thoughts on half lap joints on the frame connections as well as the ply gussetts both sides? I noticed one of the Barrelback photo sets (Daniel Holmes in Fairport, New Y...

Re: Key Largo build. Tahmoor (nr. Sydney) Australia

Wow, some great replies there. Thanks Mick, Jim and Bryan. I bought some timber yesterday so it is on for young and old now. :lol: I compared the price between Mahogany, which incidentally is Swietenia Macrophylla plantation grown in Fiji, which surprised me, against spotted gum (a traditional Aussi...

Re: Key Largo build. Tahmoor (nr. Sydney) Australia

Thanks Ian,

Totally agree about the deadlines. My three years is just an estimate and my main driver is quality. If it takes longer so be it.

Wow, 2 year old. I remember those days. I wish I had a bigger shed to retreat to when my little cherub was 2. :twisted:

Re: Key Largo build. Tahmoor (nr. Sydney) Australia

Ok: The first questions... :) The building form plan clearly shows the motor stringer and the dimensions between the notches for the frames but it doesn't have a dimension for the positioning of the Leg Uprights of the building form. Judging by the drawing I have positioned them at the Transom; a co...
