Re: Motor stringers

Laminated is often stronger and straighter than solid lumber.

Re: Window Frame Design

Here’s some pics that I saw on CL from a boat for sale. Thought it looked like a nice design...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

When I make templates like that (for countertops) I use a hot glue gun. Quick and strong.

Re: attaching ply subdeck

I also skipped the nails and screws on my build. I did use some temporary screws to hold things in place when clamps or weights wouldn’t work. My hull, frames and top deck have no fasteners in them. Though I did use the carriage bolts called for on the keel and transom. But I was building the little...

Re: attaching ply subdeck

If using epoxy as an adhesive does one really need to screw off the sub deck (or hull) every three inches? Or are they needed for structural reasons. And if so wouldn’t there be a difference between the schedule for nails vs screws?

stop whining about fuel cost I have a 100 litre tank @ $1.80 au per litre :roll:
I see your 1.80/liter and raise you a twin engine two stroke jet boat ;)

FWIW every gallon of gas I buy for the boat and small engines gets the marine version of Stabil and Yamaha ring free.

Re: Fisherman

IDK, but can stretching the length from the stem back change the angle of the keel/stem/frame intersection enough to change the measurements? Anyways what’s an inch here or there :P ? Line things up straight and plumb and go with it :wink: Welcome. Looking forward to watching what you do with the de...

Re: Audeen Jetpump Help

Have you tried changing the intake grate?

I don’t know much about them but I know there are many different designs available for less then a couple hundred bucks... might be worth researching to see if one would help your situation.

Bluejackets are stitch and glue while most of the B&B are plank on frame or cold molded. Unlike glen l plans they are using a lot of plywood for the fr...

Re: Build methods

And one final point in this rather windy response. Fiberglassing the interior of a boat, or the interior of anything has one main difficulty that fiberglassing the exterior is less subject to. That is getting the fiberglass to confirm to the interior shapes and stay in place while applying the resi...

Re: Build methods

Are stitch and glue boats really lighter in general? A couple similar designs that I like that listed hull weights... Double eagle... 1200lbs Bateau NV23... 1500lbs I personally don’t see a big deal fiberglassing the interior of a stitch and glue design. What’s so different then doing the outside? T...
