Re: Hull Drains

My transom drains will not leak water from the exterior of the boat. Custom made brass tubes sealed through out the transom will not promote any rot. Thinking through Bob's post with no hull drains does not bother me as most of the mid-engine designs we are building have the low spot of the hull jus...

Re: CPES

I agree with Bob. I coated all raw wood surfaces inside and outside the boat with penetrating epoxy. The penetration deep into the fibers of the wood is your insurance for rot. It takes a long time to build a quality boat, this step should not be eliminated. Pay attention to the dry times, it takes ...

Re: cut water?

Cutwaterguy: I would make another cutwater, I do have a lot of time in it, it did not cost a lot of money, I used 18 GA 316 mill finish. The biggest problem I had was getting the top of the cutwater to fit up to the rubrail cleanly, that's where the bow cap came into place. Attached are some pics of...

The windshield brackets are replicas made for a Chris Craft. I can only assume they are pre-war.

Robert:

Looks Great!

Going to need more than 3 coats of varnish. I would put on 6 to 7 coats now and 6 to 7 coats just before your finished.

Keep up the great work!

Re: Rudder placement

With standard LH rotation the helm is on the starboard side because the boat will back down to starboard. It is preferred to dock on the starboard side. This way the captain is on the docking side of the boat. I used no offset, boat tracks perfectly. The rudder should be 1" plus the thickness of the...
