TV 15-32 overdue post

Post by TexasZeke » Mon Jun 22, 2009 9:35 pm

I keep meaning to post this and then one thing or the other comes up. I've finally got a little time so I will try to rectify this.
Guess a little background is in order. This is my second boat. First was built from a combination of a couple of sets of free plans. It was most built as a test vehicle and learning tool. It was built with what I have heard called rib and screw, very little fiberglass at all. From start to finish I had 11 days invested and most of that in waiting for the paint to dry.

So far I've got about two and a half weeks in this one and guessing maybe halfway through
starting to put the pieces together
Image
Image
all wired up
Image
Image
external filets started
Image
outside filets finished and sanded
Image
Image
external cloth applied and internal filets applied
Image
Image
hopefully I put the last fill coat on the exterior tonight and can start finishing out the inside tomorrow.
So far it's going pretty good I think, being that it's my first stitch and glue boat. The only problem I have encountered so far is when I was putting the cloth on the hull, where the tumblehomes were resting on the sawhorses I developed a wave in them that I will have to work out. I will say this, from what I can see so far I think this is going to be a great boat

The beauty of already having the previously made boat, is that the second one can take as long as you want. You can use the old while building the new. :D

All good.......... unless you've got an impatient other half :shock: :roll: :lol: :lol:

Boats lookin good Kevin......... looks like you use those catfish jug things too

I don't think we would be allowed to use them here........authorities are a bit funny about lines that are not hand held..........however the pros would probably be able to use them

Kevin....

When you attach the railing it should take that wave out and fair the sides up for you. :D

that's what I'm hoping

Question: my plans call for a 3/4" thick breast hook or end cap on each end. I plan on putting a deck on the front extending back about 4' and one on the back extending forward about 3'. Does all of this need to be 3/4" thick? Does any of it? Or how thick would yall make it?

thanks
kevin

Only part that has to have solid thickness, gunwale to gunwale, is any end spot you'd grab onto to pull out of the water, drag on the beach, etc.

Kevin, 6mm deck will do for a small boat with a 20mm or 25mm stiffener where you will grab her for hauling, as Matt says, Strength where you need it.
