Re: Outrage progress

A hand plane will go through them too. You'll just have to re-sharpen afterwards. :lol:

Definitely not a Sea Knight and probably not a Glen-l.

Re: Outrage progress

Lots of ways to do everything on a boat build. Whatever works is fair game.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

When I'm in the Geronimo by myself I can't feel it heeling to the helm side. And I have the battery on my side as well. The Barrel is a heavier boat. It will take more to upset the balance. Plus with the flat hull in the back adds to the stability.

Re: Choice of (2) band saws, help...

You'll still use that jig saw. It's hard to run a big sheet of plywood through a band saw. And you'll likely use it ON the boat. I got away without a band saw but it sure would have been nice to have one. I'd still like to have one in fact.

Re: Searching the best mini gas tiller

There are lots of gardening forums. That would probably be a better place for this question.

Re: Anyone else building or planning to build a Waterlodge or Waterlodge Too?

I've thought about one of those. It would be relatively cheap and easy to build. Should be great on lakes and rivers. I'm now thinking about something else because island hopping in the Carribean sounds like fun and I wouldn't want to take a waterlodge out in the open ocean.

Re: Okoume vs Meranti for clear finishing

I can help with that. My frame gussets are meranti, the hull is okoume, and the frames are white oak. Everything is clear coated with epoxy. No stain. Okoume is slightly nicer to work with and lighter in weight. Meranti tends to splinter when you saw it. Both were high-quality panels.

Re: Riviera seaworthiness?

I think the closest you are going to get within that size limitation is going to be the Roustabout. Deep v hull with lift strakes. You can veneer the topsides just like the others and make it look however you want. You can stretch it 10% if 17 feet is not enough.

Re: Riviera seaworthiness?

I get the appeal of deep vee and all. But a lightweight boat with a deep v is still just going to bounce on top of waves anyway. At least that's my thought. The heavier cold molded designs should be inherently more comfortable. We really need Dr Bryan to get his Modified Malahini in the water so we ...

Hoodman--the Klondike has a 15-1/2 foot beam and our boat trailer plans are for boats with a beam up to 8-1/2 foot, FYI. Thank you though!

Re: staining inside of hull

Frame three on the Geronimo takes really wide lumber to make. I ended up edge glueing about an inch onto one board to make up the difference. If you're really concerned you can back the edge glued area with a plywood gusset but I didn't find that necessary.
