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.

Re: Build methods

@christer Another forum to check out https://messing-about.com/forums/ It’s the discussion board for several designers including B&B and bluejacket. 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...

Re: Pee Wee in Maine

...But I’ve been watching for a good deal on a jet ski trailer for the PeeWee. Figured it would be easier to just have it on a trailer. And this just popped up on CL. So I bought it ;) 9E7E36E3-DCB7-4710-95C6-63BE91070B29.png Trailer needs a little work but it was a fair price and I got the ski for ...

Re: Pee Wee in Maine

That's a great picture, with the boat in the pick-up bed. We can see how you load it with the crane. But, how do you launch it upon arrival at the boat ramp? Don't tell us you just back down the ramp, until the boat floats off..... We don't think you load it back onto the truck that way, either.......

Re: Pee Wee in Maine

Hey, I’m back. Mark, it was very nice meeting you. Agreed it was way to short of a time to check out the boats and talk. I was very impressed with your ski-tow. Got to say I was surprised at how much interior space you had. Very different feel then a modern fiberglass boat. Seemed much roomier. Was ...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Looking good Matt.

As far as anchors look at the Mantus 8lb. Add a little chain and one of the bungee lines. In mud or sand it’s a drop and forget about it deal when you want to set anchor.
