Re: plywood thickness on sides

Thanks guys. The cost and weight weren't the main concerns, it was really the bending. I built a stich and glue canoe years ago with 1/4, and I remember even that being somewhat difficult at spots. Figured 3/8 would be a real bear. But I'll go with it. Based on oysters response, going less could aff...

plywood thickness on sides

It's been over 12 hours since I ordered my plans! What's taking them so long??? :lol: Not sure if this is addressed in the book or plans, but I'm going to ask anyway. Is it feasible (safe) to reduce the thickness of the side planking? I'm looking at the BOM for the Celerity, and it calls for 3/8 ply...

starting the Celerity

Hi, New to the forum, and just purchased the Celerity plans, and the Building with Plywood book. Been doing a lot of research over the past few weeks, and changed my mind several times before settling on the Celerity. Originally I thought it was a little too plain, but then the simplicity of the des...

Re: Cracked Squirt Batten

FYI,
I emailed the manufacturer, and this was the response I got from Roger at Snaptraxx:
I have not tested Snaptraxx on many painted hulls. I have performed testing on several hulls painted with Sterling brand paint and have seen no issues.
so I guess that makes a definite maybe... :?

Re: Cracked Squirt Batten

Wonder if these would help?

I've seen a few different non-carpet bunk covers out there, but just not sure if they would provide any less friction/rubbing than carpet does.

Re: Celerity stability?

Thanks galamb.
I think it was the "deep vee" in the Celerity description that threw me off. Further research confirmed exactly what your saying. The 16 degrees puts it in the semi-v catagory, which I think is the perfect compromise, and exactly what we'd need based on where we ride.

Re: Celerity stability?

Thanks, that's a good point of reference. But I'm not so concerned about the 16 degree itself, but more with the fact that it extends all the way to the transom like that. From what I've read, there's designs that "flatten out" as they move aft, so you get the best of both worlds so to speak. But ma...

Celerity stability?

I'm still in the research phase of my plans to build my own boat. I've already decided on the model I want at least half a dozen times, only to change my mind as I do more research. (I have a tendency to over analyze/research before doing anything... drives my wife nuts) Anyway, I'm currently lookin...
