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.

I've never heard that naming a boat early was a problem. Re-naming is definitely "BAD JUJU" :shock: :shock: :shock: .

Re: orientation of the patterns in plan packets

Catbldr I don't have a set of these plans either. I go along with Bill, since the templates, generally are for one side and then flipped for the other side, they aren't fore or aft. (I guess that makes them ambidextrous :roll: ) There may an issue on how they fit on the boat, does the floor timber o...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Will you be hooking up to shore power? AC power to run a light, microwave, heater, fan, etc.? While also having DC for lights, and a few other things while off-shore? If so, an inverter or converter might be in your future. They require more depth and a ventilation fan and are often installed at ank...

Re: Wood on a fiberglass hull

Laminating is an interesting notion. I love the look of wooden boats. They are interesting at multiple "focal lengths". From a distance, the wood stands out among the white boats. Up close the details of wood grain, caulk lines, joinery and bungs is very pleasing. I agree with others that ...

Re: Project *OverKill* Tahoe 23

Hi Shane, I built a very heavy stationary bench with a side vise (Jorgensen 4x10) for hand tool work. I made it heavy so it would not skid around when I am working on something. It has a ¼” coated hardboard insert. It also has screw inserts in the top for a machine vise that is occasionally needed. ...

Re: Transom Slither

OK. On the full size pattern drawing showing the half sections of each frame, there is also a horizontal set-up line. The transom will be shown full size in its relation to the set-up line. The transom unlike the other frames is not vertical and is rotated perpendicular to the set-up line to its cor...
