Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Neel, With your 6mm thick planks, how hard has it been to get them to cup and conform to the curve across the width of the plank towards the transom? Your planks appear to be 4-5 inches wide like mine on my Monaco and it looks like your PB has a pretty good curve (barrelback) like my Monaco. I was w...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Well, I compromised with myself :) and decided to run a row of screws down the middle batten on each side using one foot spacing. I also just finished two coats of CPES on the sides in preparation for the final layer of planking. I started planing the second strake of final side planking. I am going...

Re: Help needed working with Glen L plans

Stephen, One thing to keep in mind if you install castors on your building form later, watch out for the boat staying level. Your garage floor is most likely not level but your stringers need to be level in all directions to aid in keeping your frames and transom true. Keeping everything level later...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Neel, I guess I need to clarify some more :) I used thousands of Raptor brads for all of my planking as well. I just drove the screws at the chine and sheer recently which was something I wasn't planning on doing until recently after reading the recent "Screws through final layer of plywood" post. I...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I guess I need to clarify, when I said I was thinking of running a row of screws down the middle batten of the sides and bottom on each side, I meant through the final plywood planking layer. I don't plan to do this through the final veneer layer. I already drove screws through the final planking la...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Based on the comments in the "Screws through final layer of plywood" post, it appears that the thinking is that there is no need to use fasteners to attach the planking to the battens. However, my Monaco plans appear to show that I am supposed to so I am confused by this. Below are snippets of the M...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Neel/Tom, Thank you guys. I was originally planning to use Tom's method of slipping the next row under the previous row. My planks are about 5mm thick so they might be too thick. If that doesn't work, I will have to try Neel's method. Either way, it seems like there still will be hand tuning and fit...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Neel,

Thank you. I guess I don't fully understand when you said "I temporarily attach (clamp somehow) the next row about two inches above the row before. Then I use an old fashioned compass to scribe the bottom (top) of the that row.". Do you have a couple of pictures?

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Here are some more pictures. I planed the planking piece down to about 5mm.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I decided to order brown Raptor brads for my transom and side planking so while waiting for them to arrive, I started spiling the side planking. I used a reference piece to transfer the strake line to a higher point on the hull and then transfer it back to the planking piece. I also made a vertical ...

Carl,

Understood. I will take my time and try to get each fit as tight as possible. I will do my best :)

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

The sides and transom are lined off now. I used a vinyl (or PVC, I can't remember) screen molding as a batten which worked well. I also started ripping and planing the genuine mahogany for the transom planking. The milled pieces I recently bought were 6.5-7mm thick so I planed them down to around 5m...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Nice detail work on the cockpit trim. That will really finish the cockpit out nicely.
