Touring Pirouge T-V

Post by tx river rat » Fri Nov 23, 2007 11:22 pm

Well couple days ago I got started on this boat

got the tumble homes stitched on

Its coming right along
I am really excited about this boat like the swede form hull shape , v bottom and just 2 inches wider than the Laker but a much longer water line at 15 ft I think this boat is going to be the one for me even more than the Laker Like I said I am excited.

Ron:
Did you find it helpful to have 8 temp frames in stitching the hull together?
Thanks

How did the lower bow/sterns stems come together (where it rounded off at the bottom)?

Any issues getting it all to come together in that area?

I think it is amazing how the humble pirogue has evolved.

A basic piroge was allways a very good boat in its own right. In the last 12 months or so, Matt has taken the concept, and refined it into what we are watching take shape here - Something that is so much more!, - Simple, Functional, practical and oh so elegant. I love it!

Ron, I love your work mate and I am liking the lines of this one even more. :D
Regards,
Mick

Matt
The sections you are talking about came together with a little work but I am using 1/8 ply I don't think you could use 4 or 6 mm Ply and form it.
With 1/8 inch gives a really good look to front of the boat.
Ron
Mick I think this boat I am going to like better than the Laker.
We will see

If the point on the bottom sheets was extended about 1/2 to 3/4 inch it would work well.

I wondered about that. Thanks for the feedback.

Matt:
Do you think i should extend the bottom panels by 1/2 to 3/4 inches on both forward and stern panels as Ron suggests? Thanks
