Contact Fergal Butler. He can answer any question and a few you don't want to know. He got caught out in really bad conditions and his boat ended lost on the bottom. He's a great guy though.

Michael

That is what I did. Make joint back in the flat area. A butt plate over the first splice is a good idea. the outside planking will reinforce the outer layer of the keel.

My Bartender has 3 layers of solid lumber for the stem w/staggered splices. The Tahoe stem is 2 layers of lumber and 1 layer of 3/4"ply. I see no reason that the breasthook and knees could not be built up from solid pieces.

Re: best design for relaxed cruising

Mike What size range? Inboard or outboard? Where are you located? Any of the inboard mahoganies might be a good choice. They don't rare up they run flat. To run where your talking about they would probably only require 50- 70HP. In the 20' range you might look at the Party Boat. Says it will do abou...

Typically only the outside. I'm not sure on stitch and glue. If you want extra abrasion resistance use Dynel fabric instead of glass.

If you go with the skiff you can laminate another 1/8" layer on the bottom. It would take some creative clapping. But, it could be done. It won't work out to try to start with 1/2" ply or 1/4" ply.

Re: Squirt in Alabama

Micah I didn't attach to the floor. But, when you start bending shears, chines and battens you have to work both sides at the same time. You can start at the transom, where it is pretty straight, and attach each side. when you start the bend pull the two opposite members together. This leaves the pr...

Re: Console Skif vs Scrambler

Baron I think I go with the skiff for all the previously mentioned reasons. But, I think I'd build the Cabin Skiff as a center console. Then you will already have the plans for the cabin. The CS is stitch and glue which others think is easier. I don't know since I've never done stitch & glue. Bill

I don't know how many times that I've spent money to save money only to go back and spend the money later!
