Re: Rub rails

Brian,

I used a router with an ogee bit (the round-over part of the profile) similar to https://www.rockler.com/decorative-ogee-bit-oe869 to get most of the round-over. The aft end was all hand work.

Re: Zip SA Build

David, Lapping the chine joint is not necessary. I half-lapped mine anyway with gussets both sides. Have you considered making the inside of the frame vertical to facilitate the covering (ceiling) of the floatation and storage areas? Is there a carling and if so how will the carling to ceiling inter...

Re: OKOUME PLYWOOD VS MARINE GRADE PLYWOOD

Sorry, but we are starting to mix our vegetables. Shawn wrote about the marine ply at Menards. The stuff at Menards is spec'd to a structural standard with a marine glue. https://hw.menardc.com/main/items/media/ROSEB001/Prod_Tech_Spec/ABMarine102317-DS918.pdf It is supposed to meet this APA standard...

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Any tips for keeping those individual gusset pieces together as I cut out the edges? Should I just screw them together for the cutting? I think clamping will cause problems with the bandsaw work surface and may lead to slippage (even a small amount). - Andrew A couple of pieces of double sided tape...

Re: OKOUME PLYWOOD VS MARINE GRADE PLYWOOD

"Marine" and 1088 are not the same. The underlying standard used for the Menard's marine plywood is a structural standard. The glue is used for marine applications. The number of plys per thickness is probably different which would be significant when bending a panel. You already mention the appeara...

and sell it when you are done.
I keep forgetting that part. :lol: :lol:

A template hole cut to the plug cutter diameter might help get the plug cutter started since the cutter is centerless.

Re: Aussie Belle

Jamie,

I appreciate the horizontal strap to keep things from spreading. Around here, pre-engineered buildings cut things close - - heavy clouds might overload something. :shock: :shock:

I've been admiring your cutwater. How wide is it and what is the spacing of the screws?

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

I'm looking at my schedule*, and while I've been hoping to get in full weekend days (and to accomplish a lot over Thanksgiving weekend), it looks as though I may need to do an assembly per evening, especially if it's going to take 1-2 days for curing for each. That's 3-4 days per frame (both sides)...

Re: Building a La Paz 24

Hey Ralph, Both sides the same and consistent with the drawing of frame 4 is great news. I'm not sure I was clear on the fairing question. It looks as though the design begins to change the bottom planes at about frame 4. Frame 5 for sure and maybe frame 4 should get some fairing on the forward edge...

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Andrew, 5 nails/gusset/frame member, so 10 nails for each gusset. A scrap with a screw in each end is a great clamp. Lay the frame member on the drawing as shown in the previous post, then lay the scrap across the member and screw it down so the piece can't slide around. Then you can bring to the ne...

Re: Building a La Paz 24

Hi Ralph, I had the same question on my build and I'm still not certain... I checked the template drawing much the way you are checking your work now. Does the chine point start to move off the straight edge at frame 3 and so on? Then I used a sheet of plywood to see if it would lay flat on the batt...

Re: Frame Wood Selection

An added note on deck beams. As acflynn mentioned, the deck beams need some width to accommodate the curve, say 8". There will be some waste as you get 3" from 8". A multiple of 3" wider board, say 11" or 14", will get you two or three beams by nesting without increasing the waste. And, while the pl...

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Hey Andrew, My previous shop lacked space for dust collection and the shop vac filter fouled frequently. The solution I used was a HEPA filter for the vac, a cyclone dust separator, and an extra length of vac hose. The extra hose allowed the vac to lives under one side of the table saw without getti...

Re: ATTACHING DECK PLANK USING LAP JOINT

Shaun, Lap Joints - yes. The book on plywood construction is a great general guide. For specifics, see the plans and instructions. Check your instructions/Fastener Schedule - 2" #10, 2/junction. (I would reduce the length if you're not using a full inch/member) See sheet 2 for location of deck beams...
