Re: Carriage Bolts ?!?

You could use a forstner bit and recess the nut end as the sheer rail is 1" thick you should have enough strength left if you recess the nut, this would provide relief from snags. Dont know if the cap rail is epoxied down as well but for commercial vessels like tug boats, for example, the fenders ar...

I went up to visit my little brother who is a firsty (senior) at the Naval Academy in Annapolis before going to Philly for the Army Navy Game last weekend. On campus they have a Naval Academy museum which is awesome in its own right but upstairs there is a model ship museum. It has a large collectio...

Re: Stretching out the beam?

In regard to what Kevin is saying about the viewing of the lines on paper is true, as even with a computer faired design there is something to be said about actually looking down the lines in person. In my own experience if you have the design in a CAD format (I realize you do not and it will most l...

Re: Madisonville Wooden Boat Festival

Well "building" would imply i have started... ehh not so much. I am building a barrelback but I am in the process of some modifications that I am working through, along with budgeting some money to purchase lumber. All I can say is daycare does a number on my bank account.

Re: Making a monto Carlo wider

The small width of the engine I believe would allow you to have 2 engines, however as you traverse outboard the amount of usable space under the stringers decreases considerably. That said you might be able to make the main engine stringers out of alloy but I would worry about decreasing the frames ...

Re: Making a monto Carlo wider

I think this is possible, though few things to consider. The Monte Carlo has an L/B ratio of 3.22/1, but that is max beam assuming chine beam is going to be slightly less the L/B is probably closer to 3.5/1. This is usually a good average for most of these types of vessels. If you know the overall d...

Re: Dream Builder

In regards to your thinking on the Inboard Vdrive location i would take considerable amounts of time to consider any major move. The designer has a vessel that should float at its designed trim with the weights as shown. The LCB can and will change with the movement of any weight. Imagine haveing 10...

Re: A question about Waterlines
