Re: Hi new from Alabama

We're just off of 231 on the north side of town. I'll send you a PM with my cell number, give me a call if you have an opportunity to meet. We have a deck boat and could even meet you on the water somewhere, weather permitting. It's been raining a lot down here, hope it stays dry to get some "w...

Re: Hi new from Alabama

Welcome to the forum and world of boat building. I'm just down the road from you in Panama City, building a Flat's Flyer. I am building it, just paused while we moved from Orlando up here. Had to get the new house in order first, now I'm building a dedicated wood shop, probably going to call it the ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I feel you Carl. I stopped working on the Flats Flyer back in July to get the house ready to sell and move to Panama City. Fortunately the sale went well, but there were many issues with the builder at the new house. Hopefully I can get started building my shop in the next month or so before it gets...

Re: Flats Flyer Build in S.C.

Though I've only completed the hull, I think the sheet count is accurate. I'm building the 19'-9" version, and so far, I've used 12 sheets, with left over pieces from the bow area. I did use 1/4" sheets laminated in the bottom bow area, but 1/2" sheets in the middle/rear area of the b...

Re: Another new guy from Northwest Arkansas.

And there are several on the forum that have either completed a Flats Flyer or, like myself, in the process of building one. I have flipped mine, but due to a job relocation, I'm on hold till the fall before I can get back on it.

Good luck, ask anything, and post lot's of photos.

Total Boat Skiff Building Series

Don't know how many are watching this skiff building series by TotalBoat, but there are a couple very interesting issues addressed in this episode that I thought others may be interested in. I was especially intrigued about the discussion on stray DC voltage in the bilge and it's effect on lumber as...

Re: Outside build

Go for it! And I'll second Graham's comment on walking back and forth from the workshop to the building area. It was about 40 feet for me and took time away from the build, not to mention a well worn path through the grass. Make sure you post lots of progress updates and maybe it will remind me of o...

Re: Outside build

I'm building a Flat's Flyer almost completely outside. I did make the frames, stem, knee, and breasthook inside then set up my building frame outside. Make sure you encapsulate your frames completely. Don't worry about the surfaces that will be epoxied to another member later, most likely you'll fai...

Kelly - No need for an outside power outlet, I wouldn't dare let Bev sleep outside in a tent, I'd let you two sleep inside the shop :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Re: Utility build

Some Japanese woodworkers believe that only God can make something perfect. Therefore, if they build something that turns out perfect, they intentionally put a dent in the wood, make a scratch somewhere, etc., just so that it's not perfect. As a woodworker, I've never made anything perfect and remin...

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

I can't wait to get started on the topsides, and yes, my mind is racing. Fortunately for me, but unfortunately for my build, I received a promotion and will need to relocate to the Florida panhandle. Puts the build on hold until after the move. The good thing though is the LOML doesn't want the gara...

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

Was at a neighbors last night for a party and he asked me how the build was going. Told him I was as far along as I could go until I got some folks together to flip her. He's a fireman and had about 10 of his buddies show up for the party. Next thing I knew, we were flipping her! We were all kinda f...
