Re: Rub rails

Thanks, Jim. So you are saying to pre-bend the bow section rather than muscle it around? Yes, It should be enough to bend a simple curve into the rail. If you put paper on the side of the hull and draw a line at the deck, when you lay the paper flat you will see it is a simple curve. Bend it to thi...

Re: Rub rails

I had a similar problem on my build, and was able to get it good enough. I have not tried this, but a friend suggested wedging the rub rail in a PVC pipe (smaller tube inside a larger tube or fill with sand) to prevent kinking. I have smaller tube benders made out of springs that work on the same pr...

Re: Minnesota Squirt Build

When you start fairing, you will want to leave the rear edge of frame 2 cut per the plans. The forward edge of the frame will be faired and angled in to follow the lines of the sheers and chines. So, when working on the notches for the chines you want to angle the notch in to follow the chine. At th...

Re: OKOUME PLYWOOD VS MARINE GRADE PLYWOOD

If it is really "marine" grade plywood, there should be no problem using it for the stem and transom. It should have no voids and exterior grade glue. The main reason for using marine grade plywood is the no voids when bending it.

If you need a drill press just to cut bungs, why not look into the "craigslist tool rental" program? Just find a drill press on Craigslist and sell it when you are done. If you find the right one, it probably won't cost you anything.

Re: Minnesota Squirt Build

Hi Brock,

As long as your keel is straight/flat from the transom to frame #1 and there is a smooth, convex curve frame #1 to the stem, you will be al right. You just don't the keel to have any concave areas.

Re: Travels and Adventures of "Curt's Dream" a True Grit design-The Great Loop

Hi Curt,

I'm glad you are enjoying your adventure. We were in Panama City a few years back for a spring vacation, and got over to the Naval Air Museum and got to see the Blue Angels practice. Very nice museum and worth the trip.
