Re: Another Geronimo Coming Soon

Matt, on my overnighter I ran a half inch thick inch wide keel strip the entire length of the boat from the transom all the way to the bow. This was per the plans. I put 1/4" radius round over to soften the sharp edges. I then covered the whole bottom of the boat and the whole length of the keel str...

Re: Cabin Design Considerations

I was reading what Adrock had posted and realized that what he is describing is basically the cabin configuration of the Sea Knight. On the much larger Vera Cruise that configuration would put your helm maybe two or three feet forward and give you a really nice sized cockpit. Maybe a slightly short...

Re: Cabin Design Considerations

Carl, I think you need to really spend some time think about your priorities and how you envision really using the boat in real life the majority of the time. Consider what's important and rank the importance of the various accommodations to decide what you really need. For example, is sleeping spac...

Looks awesome Matt. When you get that last piece of plywood on all the sudden it really starts to feel like your looking at a boat.

Re: Seaworthy?

I don't care how deep the vee. 6-8' swells in any small craft are serious business and not conditions that I would ever subject myself to in a small boat. I know there is a big difference between long well spaced gentle swells and and steep short interval swells but 6-8 feet seas are too big for you...

Re: To stripe or not to stripe......

Bill thanks for the link. I recognized that boat as soon as I went to the thread and guess what, the last post in the thread was mine complementing the paint job. Lol. Anyway that color scheme is exactly the combo I'm going for. Dave's boat is a gorgeous example. His stripe is fairly fine so it's no...

Re: To stripe or not to stripe......

Thanks guys! I'll scour the forums and see if I can find a pick of Dave's boat. Do you remember what model he built?

Re: To stripe or not to stripe......

For sure Bill no doubt it would be easier. Just can't decide if I'll prefer the appearance without the stripe. I wish I could see more examples of traditional wood boats without it. Different colors on the bottom and topsides and/or a stripe is definitely more common.

To stripe or not to stripe......

That is the question. Specifically the boot stripe. Or waterline. Not sure what is technically the right term. In any event. I am, as usual, thinking about ten steps ahead. I'm about to start fiberglass but I'm thinking now about paint. I'm building the Overniter and my plan is to do a color scheme ...

Filling screw holes.

Wasn't sure whether to put this in the Epoxy forum, Fiberglass forumor, the Fastener forum so here it is. Lol Im getting ready for fiberglass on my overniter. All the screws were driven just slightly below flush to the best of my ability and then filled with some epoxy mixed with fillers and sanded ...

Re: Overniter in SC

Well after a lot more reading and research I think I've settled on a plan. I'm going to go with the fairly standard practice of a single layer of fiberglass covering the entire hull with overlaps at the chines and keel so it's doubly thick at those locations. I think I'm just going to go with a heav...
