Thanks...I'm about 30% concerned that it was stolen... :lol:

Re: Rollers or Bunks for Flats Flyer

After that, composite or wood? Anyone try both? The obvious goal would be not to replace the wood boards

Rollers or Bunks for Flats Flyer

I purchased a used trailer with large rollers on it. It had a 21 foot 92 bay liner but it will be modified to a 20' Flats Flyer... I'm trying to decide: Rollers or bunks? Or combination?

Re: FF in Kathleen GA

Well the first sheer clamp layer is on and the second is 1/2 down. I'll add the backs and the ones to the forward portion of the boat (frames 4-breasthook) and put the second layer of the keel on tomorrow.

Re: Sheer Clamp question

Thanks Roberta. I was in a time sensitive situation, so I went ahead and did the butt joint. I placed it over frame 3, a straight, no bend portion. It will be laminated and I will place the break somewhere away from that spot. Thanks for the reaponse!

Sheer Clamp question

Is there any reason I cant butt join a sheer clamp over a frame? Especially since the sheer clamp will be a lamination of 2 pieces

What do you mean by chine line? Where to plywood lines meet?

Re: FF in Kathleen GA

I have a steamer from past projects. I'm more concerned of the look of the drastic twist. I didn't lay the batten back as far as I should on frame 5
