Re: Michigan Squirt Build

Jim,

I don't think I would use 5200 for any of that. The stuff is really sticky, expensive, and sandable solid when cured. I really like 5200, but only for those thing you never, ever, plan to remove. I think 4200 might be a better choice...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Thanks.

Pete, you caught me! There are four little pieces to finish out the blocking at the lower edge of the plywood. I left them out to give myself a little access for encapsulation. They will go in with the second coat.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

I could not resist the urge to force a piece of 3mm plywood into the scallop.

The little voices in my head say "attach it now" and "you'll regret it if you do".

Re: Tom's Tahoe

The blocking to define the scallop shape has been installed and faired on the transom. Transom 170824 3.JPG The battens flanking the scallop have also been cut. I sprung battens across the transom to match the camber of the deck and then cut the bottom of the notches, screwed the battens down, and t...

Re: Tahoe 23 project, Norway

PeteG is correct about Van Dam using solid lumber to cold mold. They use alaskan yellow cedar for the inside layer and then switch to marine plywood for the intermediate layers. It makes for a beautiful interior.

I agree the hardware looks great. Wonder where it came from.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Toivo, The initial plan to cut the step into the area above the rudder has been abandoned. The plans show a transom made from a layer of plywood with blocking aft to create a cambered transom. I am keeping the plywood and doing something different aft. The area from chine to keel to chine is extende...

Re: Epoxy bonding issues with white oak.

The short answer is sand with 80 grit, thoroughly wipe with 70% alcohol with water, and lightly clamp. The Gougeon Brothers at West Systems do a lot of research. They tested white oak samples using different joint prep methods. I couldn't find the that study. They published a few other articles, htt...

The support for the scallop are next to fill in the center section.

Re: Laminating frames

The lamination would work well. You might also think about turning the lamination so the individual pieces would be narrow and then stacked to make the wide dimension of the frame member.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Thanks everyone for the encouragement. I've been in stuck in "what was I thinking?" for a long while. Then it finally occurred to me, if I don't like I can use it for a great bonfire. The transom has been mounted on the frame, all the longitudinals placed, and basic fairing from stem to st...

Re: Which plan to emulate a Chris Craft Capri?

Chips, Welcome. You might like the Roustabout. It will take a little "imagining" to make a Capri. The Roustabout is 17' that can be stretched 10%, close to 19'. It can use a 650 lb. inboard/outboard, so maybe a small V8. It is shown as a utility, but by the time you are finished with the h...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Matt, Ripping an 8' sheet would be a hassle! Break the sheet down first. If the pieces you need are, say 6"x36", cut 36" off the end of the sheet and then rip down to 6" so you would get 8 pieces, about 6" wide and 36" long with the grain showing end to end. The word yo...

Re: Tahoe 23 project, Norway

Toivo,

Welcome to the forum. Deck clamps are the layer of boards running on top of the sheer clamps. The deck clamps provide support for the outboard edge of the deck. They are shown in the details on the template drawing.
