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

Re: I have the plans, that is it so far

I am going to stick with the plans. I have a 25 Johnson (think it is a 99). It is a tiller steer right now but I should be able to snag some used mechanical controls. This motor should push it along at a decent speed. I don't think this will be an issue for a while though. Since this is my first try...

Re: I have the plans, that is it so far

I guess I should add that I can get regular white oak at about half the cost of quarter sawn. I figured the quarter sawn would be a better bet for the frames but maybe that is not true?

I have the plans, that is it so far

I ordered the Tuffy plans at the start of May. I am not sure when I am going to start, everything I already own is broken or needs some kind of maintenance. Those things should probably be fixed first. At least I will have time to go over the boat building book and the plans before I am able to get ...
