Nope! Can't use it! :shock: Just, send it all to me! :D I'll help you out. :)

We've just had the thread on Ash. I'm not sure about cherry and walnut as frames. :?

I'm sure someone will come in.

Denis, I'm doing the Tahoe 19 also, streched to 20'-6. :D Pictures are posted in the Hankinson section. I'm in the final stages before turning the hull! I used DF and had to sort thru a lot of wood to get what I wanted. I'm trying to keep the weight down so I don't need to buy a new truck. By the ti...

My sanders take both hands.

If I didn't SAND, I couldn't afford the BEER! :shock:

But, I do hate it! :roll:

I'm sorry that I never had the chance to deal with him. But, I'm sure I've heard echos of his experiences here.

He'll be missed.

Robert,

I can't make a recommendation on do it yourself.

Don't know your skill set. :wink:

But, 220 v is basically 2 110 v circuits going to 1 tool.

If you've ever added a breaker, it is the same thing.

Denis,

I'm doing a 20'-6" cold mold mahogany. I'm using ash for accents, fully encapcellated of coarse.

I really like the contrasting colour. I think Chris Craft used it. But, called it bleached mahogany.

Which Boat?

And, Pictures. John likes pictures! :)

Graham's approach is pretty much what I have done. I cut the hole in the keel. Then after planking, I cut the hole through it. After some sanding, I lined it with PVC pipe. When I turn the hull I'll need to do some filling around the pipe, smooth it down to the keel, and mount the shaft log. It's no...

Capt. I don't agree with 6-8 coats. :wink: Because, I want my boats light. Three coats max, then sand.(Yes, Dale. I hate to sand!) :cry: Three coats will fill a 6 to 8 oz. weave. You can sand it to at least 220 grit. You have to overcoat it anyway. Differences are what makes this forum valuable!!!

Bruce T Thanks. :D :) I couldn't/can't leave it along either. I stretched mine 18". And, after I see what the engine compartment looks like, the front cockpit arrangement is up for grabs. I'm an engineer that doesn't want a boat like anything else in the world. ...better I hope, or at least tha...

Hey, Bruce! :shock:

Why not look in the GlenL "Boat Plans Catalog" at the boats named "Riviera", "Monaco" and "Monte Carlo"! :P

Capt Jake is right 207/105 does have a UV filter in it. But, it does need additional protection. I, personally, like the amber colour (Graham). :P It's about the same color as traditional varnish. The number of coats will depend on the fabric used. But, for 6 or 7 oz. cloth, usually, 1 to wet out th...

Trickie,

Glad it helped. Everything I've gotten from them has been very good quality. Sometimes the shipping hurt though! :cry:
