Re: Tuffy Build

I did not work on the boat all summer. In the last couple days I have worked a bit on fairing the frames. One side and the top are pretty close. I had some plywood clamped on and there were only a couple of spots that need to be looked at. I used a combination of a hand plane and belt sander which s...

Re: Squirt in Alabama

Great idea with the router.

I used a sled that had on the table saw. I marked the correct line on the boards to cut and used the sled to hold them in position and ran them through.

Re: Tuffy Build

6 sounds good, thanks. I have not decided whether I was going to glass the deck or not, I will have a while to think about it.

Re: Tuffy Build

Slowly forward. I have the chine glued and screwed, except at the transom. I used boiling water and towels to help with the bend, nothing broke so I guess it worked. I did a few measurement checks just to make sure. The cutouts for the chine went OK. The first one needed some fine tuning but the sec...

Re: Console Skiff Build

That is a nice looking captains seat and controls.

I may have missed it but what is going on the back?

Re: New member from oregon

Looks great. I imagine it looks even better in person.

It will be a long wait until launch day.

Re: Tuffy Build

Seems I am poor about documenting. I don't have much time in, most of it is cutting a piece or two as I have a minute. The form is built, frames are attached to it, one and two are level as they are supposed to be. The transom and stem are cut out, I clamped the stem in place, it seems to line up. T...

Re: Tuffy Build

I am happy to see another one, especially one that is ahead of me. I ended up getting my fasteners and got a frame put together, I was happy with the way it turned out. Unfortunately after that I came down with Lyme Disease so I have not been doing anything (at all) for a number of days now. Hopeful...

Re: Tuffy Build

I got the first frame drawn out and cut out the side pieces, they fit into the drawing so I guess that is a good sign. I don't have my fasteners yet, hopefully by the time I get them I will have the other frame pieces close to ready so it will just be a matter of drawing them out to put them together.

Re: Tuffy Build

Not sure why there are not many, I think it is a good looking boat. We don't have harbour freight but Canadian Tire has some good sales on clamps here and there. I might have to take a run to a Home Depot to get wood for the form anyway, the places near me keep theirs outside. I still have to get pr...

Tuffy Build

Started today. I got the plans in the spring, I was hoping to start a little sooner but things came up and I have less $$$ than I think I do. Picked up some supplies between then and now, they sure don't give that 3/4 marine plywood away! Managed to get some 14+ foot ash so no worry about joints, I ...

Re: I'm a Boat Builder! G-L Ski Tow under construction!

ok thanks, I think the moving platform will work better for me as well.

I like the different colour floorboards as well.

Re: I'm a Boat Builder! G-L Ski Tow under construction!

That is a nice looking boat.

I see you built on a platform, I am considering the same.

Is there anything that you did not like about doing it that way or would change?

thanks
