hi Bruce- thanks for the reply! i hadnt even thought of the staples needed in the areas between the battens! :shock: i'll take a closer look at that as i had tested my idea on a pretty mild section of the boat. may try another at the bow. re-read Bills ideas about marking the battens again and will ...

still experimenting with technique for fastening planking also... trying 1/4" monel narrow crown staples that are sunk into the okoume ply with the pneumatic stapler as permanent fasteners instead of removing. stapled a few 5" wide "test" panels on the sides to see how it worked and seemed fine... m...

thanks Bill and Bruce... appreciate your take on this. i guess my approach will be to just get started on the first layer on the sides and see where that leads... most likely will be slow going w the holidays etc upon us so plenty of time to over think the step. hope santa remembers to bring the eng...

cold-moulding planking idea

after reading many posts of the cold-mould planking experiences and finding batten and frame location for temporary fasteners, would it make it easier if i did the plywood veneer planking on the sides first, so i could see/mark the battens and frames as i worked on the layers then did the bottom rat...

hi Bill- thanks for that info. that will help me think this out... did you do any drain plugs thru the transom also? i have that curved transom profile on the bottom so have built up the area aft of the plywood (false) transom. i think that would mean that i would have to bore holes through the curv...

hi Dave-
need to pick up a 3/4 box core bit. tried HD & Lowes but they didnt have them so will have to order it. with a guide on the router base it should run nicely next to the battens.... think i should slot it 3/4" deep?

Bill- materials list for both the barrelback 19 plans i have and the belle isle call for 3 pieces of 3/4 ply... the belle also has a 6" wide keel and 1" thick frames so maybe the length of the boat and the larger motor size are factored in... just a guess as to what KH had in mind in this design -Bi...

i think you are right about the twist to bring it parallel to the stem. the article that you refrenced on the chine was one that i read numerous times. it alluded to the chine angle could be adjusted to give surface area for both bottom & sides. that got me thinking that this batten angle might also...

Belle Isle batten locations/angle on stem

am in the process of locating the battens in the stem section of the belle isle. seems to be a great degree of twist from the last frame to the stem, so i notched the side of the stem so the batten tip would set flush w/ the rough faired area of the stem. when i lay a piece of cardboard over the bat...

thanks for the welcome! drooled over the garwood triple cockpit crafts on Lake Winnipesaukee from my hunk of floating fiberglass forever and decided rather than modify the deck and seating of an old wooden boat to look like one, would build from scratch and get exactly what i wanted. Started the boa...
