Re: Outrage progress

I'm not sure but it would be cool if it was at least a different color.

Re: G-14 Who's Going and Where

I have a reservation for a floating cabin. Not sure which one. I'll be bringing the admiral this year.

Re: Outrage progress

I have one drain plug on the port side of the keel. It works just fine. Any excess water on the other side of the keel can easily be sopped up with a towel if need be

Re: Michael's ZIP

Hey, Michael, I was just thinking about you and your zip project the other day. Glad you have not given up on the hobby. The cruiser sounds like a great idea. That's my plan for the next one.

All the best to you as you turn the page on a new chapter.

Re: Mistake when making frames, can it be fixed?

Either more plywood gussets or a sizeable butt block the same material as the frames should sufficiently mate the two sides.

Re: new the forum and first time boat builder

Yeah you should extend the build form to support your transom. You can cut the build form stringers at 12 degrees. And you can go ahead and mount the knee to your transom.

Happy 4th y'all!

Re: new the forum and first time boat builder

Once you get the frames, transom, and stem all lined up in the building form and locked down, then take a measurement for the keel. I still have about a 12inch cutoff from my keel that lives on my workbench. Almost all of the measurements on the BOM will be longer than what is actually needed.

I did a lot of boatbuilding in shorts and flip flops during the hot NC summers.

Re: new the forum and first time boat builder

Go ahead and assemble the breasthook. You don't need to worry about the strongback until after the flip. So I wouldn't worry about notching anything just yet. There is probably a location on the plans for the dash but you can move it around a little at your discretion.

Re: New member intro, building either a Bayou or Importer

There is a sticker in the glove box of my Silverado. It shows the max weight of a slide in camper. 800 lbs for my truck. You might check and see if it's listed somewhere for yours.

Re: Short Shaft Motor or Long Shaft Motor for Zip, which one??

I'd say if you can get one a short shaft will look way better on a zip than a long shaft. It's such a low sleek hull. They are great little boats.

Re: new the forum and first time boat builder

You can rabbet the breasthook, the strongback, or both. There won't be a dimension for this. It just all has to end up fair. I don't really have any advice except that by the time you get to that point I think you'll understand what to do. You don't really need to worry about it at this point in the...
