Re: Overniter in SC

That is what I've done. I don't think you need to make epoxy fillets. Caulk will do. I just want to seal the joints. Bill - when you say caulk, what material are you talking about? I'll have an open cockpit that will be fiberglassed so fillets are needed at the corners. But in the few areas below d...

Re: Overniter in SC

What Bill said. I only attached my sheer, chine, and keel to the frames, along with the ends of the knee and stem. Only the plywood sides and bottom are glued to the frames and when I flip it, I'll add some epoxy fillets at the plywood/frame junction. BUT NO FASTNERS!

Re: Overniter in SC

I didn't have the positive/negative issue to deal with on my Flats build. I built all the frames per the full size pattern and then faired them on the form after the sheer/chine/keel etc. were all set, glued and screwed. I faired the frames and everything else initially using a power planer, rasp, b...

Re: Barrelback "Bugatti Style" windscreens

The Dirty Deid! Had to go TDY from Kandahar through the Deid to a place that shall not be named. Wound up getting deported because someone at the PAX terminal forget to arrange a visa for me and another guy. Initially, the pucker factor went up when they said we were leaving on the next flight out, ...

Re: Overniter in SC

Was thinking about this a little more and you'll need to pay attention to the amount of frame material you'll have left when screwing the chine to the frames. With a lap-joint, you'll have half the material in an end grain orientation, which isn't very good for holding screws. It's possible that the...

Re: Overniter in SC

I can't say if the joints/gusset arrangement will be any stronger or weaker but make sure you adjust your frame spacing to accommodate your modification(s). Great to see another build beginning and good luck. Please don't hesitate to ask questions either.

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

Based on comments from SpecialK and seeing other Flat's Flyer builders, I'm going to add a spray rail to my build. Based on what Carl is going through with his build, comments from others, and based on my plans, I'm not sure what I should do, but here's what I'm planning on doing. Img_1304.jpg I'm p...

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

Tracy, I meant to ask. Is there a point to purchasing the screw kit? With modern technology, why not just use exterior screws? Seems REDICULOUSLY steep for just the screws. After checking around in several places, I found Glen-L has about the best price you get for silicon bronze screws, which is a...

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

I just picked up plans for this boat a couple of days ago. Does the plan actually call for specific lumber? What did you opt for? Cypress? Teak? I'm also thinking about a mahogany veneer up the sides to give it a more classic wood look. What kind of plywood? Did you special order the 9mil as marine...

Interesting design, I say go for it!

Re: Flats Flyer Build in Orlando

Been distracted by other activities lately, plus we've had a lot of rain and some cold weather down here. Lows in the upper 30's, too cold to finish up epoxy/fiberglass work outside. This weekend, I hope to get the corners reinforced with another layer (after sanding the entire hull) and a couple fi...
