Re: Aussie Belle

Your choices of white and wood are exquisite. The cockpit looks very clean and elegant.
Such a beautiful boat.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I broke three chines before I realized my boards had tiny, pin head sized knots. I went with a straight grained white oak that I steamed and it went great.
Your boat is looking great.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Your flip table is a great idea. I’m going to make one for my Ridgid planer and sander. I have the ridgid contractor table saw (I absolutely love) that I incorporated a router table into. It drops right into the tracks, tightens down, and I use the saw fence with this notched block clamped on To the...

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

Looking good. Got some real cool originality pieces. The Dolphin windshield frames and the compass are neat touches.
I was going to do my floor similar to yours with an intarsia inlay, but my wife opted for carpet. Lol.
Looking great.

Re: Malahini from MD

Your top rail turned out so well, I think you just have to finish it out with another one on the bottom. You just have to make sure the two curves work with the windshield.
It’ll look cool either way you choose.

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

I didn’t worry about the sides of my frames as they are covered. I used a solid 1” rough sawn mahogany. I got all my ply through Johnson’s Workbench. The carry marine grade, AA, mahogany ply, in stock. They are just over an hour away from me and they delivered the whole shipment for $50 (of course I...

Re: Outrage progress

Yeah he makes it look easy, but he’s got professional tools and has done it a lot. You don’t really have to be that precise. The one thing you want to be sure of in fairing the bottom is, no dips front to back. A dip causes a low pressure point which will cause drag. So you want the water to pass ac...

Re: Malahini from MD

Looking awesome! I like the lower profile. Buy a sheet of lexan or some other polycarbonate (not plexiglass) Maybe 3/32” thick. Make a prototype out of cardboard or another thin bendable plastic. Make it fit perfect, then trace it out on the poly and cut it out. Glass, if you could even get it made ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl, I feel your pain. No matter how you go, it’s going to be a challenge. You could use a plywood guide for your router. I bought this small router for these unusual jobs. Also pictured is a bit that may help too. Making an outer guide for your router is time consuming, but less chance for mistake...

Looking great. I have to start making mine soon. I’m busting up our tiled kitchen floor right now. Momma has her priorities.

Re: Malahini from MD

The floor is coming together nicely. I like the rub rail. I'm working on that for mine. The windshield is starting to take shape. :-)

Re: modified malahini

Nice use of space. I have one bilge pump, I mounted mine similar to yours. Its a tight fit to change it back there, but not too hard. Thing is, I rarely need it. Mostly just when it rains hard.
