Re: Just Ordered Little Hunk

Tracking says that the plans arrive Thursday. I feel like a kid about to get my first mini bike.

I’m wondering if anyone has their Glen-L plans on their hard drives?

Re: Fiberglass on Chines

In you opinion is biaxial cloth worth the extra cost on simple boats such as the Pacific Dorys. I will be putting a glass schedule together for the little Hunk and while I don't want to blow money I also don't want to skimp. I ordered the plans yesterday and hope to have them in a week or so. Do the...

Just Ordered Little Hunk

Look out members. I finally ordered the boat I believe is best for my needs. Thank you all for the conversations and help you all offered so freely. The build will proceed very slowly at first but should have a great outcome in time. I'll warn all that this boat will experience work boat conditions...

Re: Tunnel on Dory

Footer, Is that you first inclination? Cavitation? It was mine also but I wanted to here it from others so thanks. I don't really need a jet for where I go. Not that it wouldn't be nice sometimes but I want simplicity and economy and will stick with the prop. It had merely occurred to me that it wou...

Tunnel on Dory

Gentlemen, If I build the Little Hunk dory with a tunnel would that allow me to mount the prop a little higher. I'll be using 40-60 hp and was wondering if the tunnel would dependably feed a propellor that was higher and proportionate to the tunnel. It's looking like the Little Hunk stretched to 21'...

Re: Head Placement

Chugalug,
Have you used this toilet yet?
Does it have a clean-out vent to the gunnels?

Nice Boat. I've often admired aspects of the Bo-Jest Design.

Re: Okume 1088 vs Meranti 1088

I was searching around the internet tonight looking for great deals on ply and didn't like anything I found but I did find Baltic Birch Marine Ply. Last year a Driftboat builder mentioned that I may find it on the east coast but he didn't say if he liked it. Have any of you used it. I have to say th...

Re: Head Placement

I like the theory of Compost toilet and suspected that Canada wouldn't like them much. My wife on the other hand would not do well with Cat Litter and coffee cans......I b...
