Re: Hello All

Welcome! I believe this hull is plywood and Menards stocks or can order for you marine grade sheets. For the mahogany, DF or spruce then Owl Hard Woods in Oak Lawn, Lombard or Des Plaines is your best bet, also try Rayner & Rinn-Scott.

Re: Space Coast Barrelback

I used ~ 5 per frame member, so 9 or 10 per gusset and I didn't run out. Transom - I think I biscuit joined the frames, then epoxy & ring nailed the plywood to the frame, it's not going anywhere. The camber board is where the deck beam and deck battens notch into the transom and that gives you the c...

Re: FL Tahoe 23

I wouldn't use any bolts at the deck beam connection on the frames, you'll need to notch these corners later for the sheer / deck clamps and you'll want the bronze screws as they'll easily be cut if you need to (you will cut into one sooner or later, trust me). Plus the size of a bolt hole here woul...

Re: FL Tahoe 23

Bolts at the deck beams? No, I'd use the 1 1/2" screws. The only place you need bolts are the junction of the stem to the keel and at the blocking for the motor stringers.

Re: New/returning member

Thanks! Yes, many others have made the presumption that building them would be a profitable venture, it isn't. The payback is enjoying the build and the ride, not the resale.

Re: Long board for fairing

Fancy expensive and tons of elbow grease! I used a straight line air sander in an X pattern but you'd need an air compressor big enough to drive it. https://www.harborfreight.com/professional-straight-line-air-sander-63994.html?_br_psugg_q=long+board+sander I've also seen guys use a belt sander but ...

Re: FL Tahoe 23

I was fortunate (lucky really) to find 20' Douglas Fir beams from a local supplier for my 21' build. Scarf and laminate away if it's the best you can get, it'll be plenty strong.

Re: First timer

Welcome! I know someone here that has a 58' Resorter but the transmission is blown and that guy says it's almost impossible to find someone to repair it. Ford 292 block and I'm not sure what the trans. is but I'm told it uses the engine oil for lubrication? Strange setup. Good luck with your project!
