Re: Console Skif vs Scrambler

Thanks for those Articles Joe they were helpful in getting my memory jogged again. I plan to buy my Epoxy products from Larry down there at Raka Marine Epoxy. Oyster thanks for remembering Xynole to us. I have a confession. Last night I've decided to build another boat altogether and from another de...

Re: Console Skif vs Scrambler

Can Graphite be used over Dynel? joe I doubt that i'll need a cabin but time ...

Re: Console Skif vs Scrambler

Is it common practice to sheath both sides of the planking? Or does it just get epoxied and varnished? Or merely painted/varnished?

Re: Console Skif vs Scrambler

Yes, Bill As I understand, the stresses put on the ply to bend them around and wire them up is substantial. And that any other thicknesses could add stresses beyond reason.
These are not self-bailing boats? Would one install removable grate floors?

Re: Console Skif vs Scrambler

Boats are like Beer. I've not ever found one I didn't like and two or more were even better :D I appreciate your comments and hope it will spur further discussion. A family man, I've always had boats where there was more leeway in the operation and durability aspects. I'm not new to Stitch and Glue ...

Re: Console Skif vs Scrambler

Hello Joe and Bill, Thanks for the Feedback. I didn't realize that the Console Skiff was available with optional high freeboard. I thought that was just an add-on that consumers were adding themselves. That could be kind of a deal breaker. I really like the thought of building the Cabin Skiff as an ...

Re: Console Skif vs Scrambler

I wish I could spend the whole day everyday fitting and playing with wood. Ironically I own a small sawmill operation but don't produce the types of lumber appropriate for boatbuilding. I've thought that the scrambler would be cool in plank-on-frame. Heavy but cool. Relating to my initial questions ...
