Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

The July 4th Holiday weekend was fairly productive, and I transformed my workshop for the next portions of the build. On Day One, I took down the "sanding tent" I had been using since I started in November. https://66.media.tumblr.com/441059678d6e8f3c9c67b127915c7754/9388b86421acf9ac-a6/s640x960/c37...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Lookin' good, Tom! It's really coming along. Do you have the foam all the way up to the stem in the bow, or did you stop earlier? And will you be putting some against the transom, even though it's concave (maybe just on the transom sides)? Great to see your update. Let's shoot for getting together S...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Those look really nice, Carl - with a vintage style. But don't forget the critical arm rest/cup holder aspect! There's elegance, and then there's functional elegance.

Keep up the great work!

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Thanks Matt, John, and Lee @Lee, you make a good point about being cognizant of the moisture content. Fortunately I'm in Phoenix, so these things tend to dry out anyway. But the contact at Spellman Hardwoods said that this Douglas Fir was between 5-6% tops. @FL-John, your sources may vary, but it tu...

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Well, hello again, Glen-L forum members! My first post in (checks page) - Yikes - two months! However, I took off the entire month of May while dealing with other pandemic-related tasks (grocery shopping for elderly in-laws, figuring out "home school" for the kiddos so they could actually move on to...

Re: Need Help with BB material list

When I was purchasing for my framing, I looked for 4/4 stock that was between 7-10 inches in width. Since the frames (at least for my design, the Mist Miss) are to be minimum 3" in width, I was able to get two frame-widths out of each length. So, an 8-foot long board might be able to yield up to fou...

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Wow, it's been a month since my last update! Time sure flies when you're quarantined. First of all I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this pandemic. That being said, there's nothing like sheltering at home to work on a boat project. So here's an update on my Mist Miss build as we get...

Re: The Not Cruise

You would not believe the vacation we're not going on this summer! First of all, we're not travelling to the Midwest to find and restore my grandfather's 1957 28' Chris Craft Sedan with Fly Bridge that probably no longer exists. Then, we absolutely won't be doing the Great Lakes portion of the Great...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Plus two on co-pilot's seat. Not only the practicality, but symmetry. I can't recall a boat (or car, for that matter) that has a side-mounted pilot's seat and an empty corresponding co-pilot's seat (or a larger seating area such as wrap-around seat or lounge chair/couch) other than a stock car (whic...

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Well, next time I'll looks around more before asking general questions. I found this article on the Glen-L site: https://boatbuilders.glen-l.com/56256/skeg-versus-fin/ Looks like my assumptions above are correct, and I'm leaning towards a fin. It seems that fins may be more adaptable - meaning that ...

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Thanks, Lee - I was debating between the two - my plans say that either are optional (none are required) and the plans show specs for both the skeg and the fin. So I was wondering which was preferable. I'm assuming the skeg is easier with trailering and shallower depths, while the fin might be bette...

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Thanks, Carl and Lee. Lee I re-read your Monaco build thread. You seem to be cruising along about six months ahead of me and was very helpful. My plans only call for a single-piece keel, with an option for a 1/4" ply on top. I should be able to get 10' lengths of 6/4 (rough 1-1/2, S2S 1-5/16, should...

Re: Otter's Ski Bass

Thanks, Tom - side clearance and clamping clearance are good points to consider as well. I believe my Mist Miss is 6" more in beam and 7" more in hull depth, so I'll have to be sure to have the wingspan to reach the keel.
