Re: Riviera Build - Sacramento

Looking good. Here are my thoughts: 1) I'm not sure exactly what your question is but I would apply more than one coat of epoxy for encapsulation. There are differing opinions on the use of CPES as part of the encapsulation process (i.e. apply CPES before epoxy) but that is something to consider. I ...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I am munching through the third row of final layer side planking. Several pieces are dry fitted so I will be epoxying them soon. A thought occurred to me in regard to trying to keep the joints (gaps) between the planking pieces as tight as possible. I plan to seal these gaps with thickened epoxy bef...

Your boat is looking great. I heard that they grow after the flip. Must be magic :)

Re: Another Aussie Zip!

That is awesome about you milling your own lumber! How do you plan to dry it?

A comment about your plywood. Make sure to use marine grade that meets BS 1088 standards. I assume that is what you are using. Just trying to save you some crying in the future... :wink:

Re: Space Coast Florida Glen-L Calypso Build

Glad to see another build. I agree that UV is a concern with the epoxy. I would keep it covered as much as possible.

Looking good though :)

Here are a couple of pictures showing mine on a TNT I built back in 2010/2011.

Re: Notching bow ply

To answer your original question, this is done to transition from the bottom plywood overlapping the side planking (closer to the stern) to the bottom and side plywood planking edges mating with a beveled butt joint (as you get closer to the bow). A lapped edge is easier to deal with and is probably...

Re: New Sweet Caroline build started

Looking good. Multitasking seems to be part of the boat building process for most of us :) but there still can be progress :)

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I now have two rows of final planking attached :) They still need to be cleaned up but I probably will wait on that because I need to put some thickened and darkened epoxy in the seams in some places. Glen-L recommended keeping the joint gaps between planks at 1/32 of an inch or less. My goal was 0....

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Andrew, Hopefully you can get things figured out soon. I am doing my Monaco build only using the third stall of our garage so it can be done. It took planning but it is working fine (e.g. portable table saw, folding tables, etc.). I am not sure how big your garage is but you might be surprised and y...

Re: Ian's TNT Build

Your build is looking good. I used a Teleflex no feedback system on my TNT (built back in 2010/2011 - see the "Another TNT build" thread). The boat has a 25 HP motor. I know a no feedback system isn't really required for small motors but I like it. A comment about your dash height. Remember that you...

Re: Riviera Build - Sacramento

I need to clarify/correct a comment in a previous post where I said "I used a long level to make sure my keel notches were in line on a horizontal plane." What I should have said is that I used a long level to make sure my keel notches were in line on the same plane. During the build on a Monaco bef...

Re: Riviera Build - Sacramento

I agree with Tom. The Monaco plans do not call for notched stringers but I am not sure about the Riviera plans.
