« on: January 26, 2011, 06:21:48 PM »

Hey guys id thought id start a thread here of how i design and build a boat from drawings to finished product.
Im gonna do a fully documented build with pics to share with guys of my 1st gas F1 build,to run inboard,however i will be doing an outboard 1 aswell as soon as i can source the lower unit.

Yet another 2 more Boats Daz?

Surely to make space and finance these new projects, you will be selling some of the ones you have up on the shelves, even if its just to make space alone Daz.

Dont forget the club website has space for sales & wants if you do decide to retail a few.

May be something on the lines of http://www.bhhanson.com/ob%202.jpg - a Lawless Outboard Leg with a Hanson 26cc on the top for example?

Started transferring to wood,iv got a trick up my sleeve,mark once cut twice.
I had the 6mm ply cut into 4" strips,by placing a tiny amount of glue to 2 pieces where you gotta cut out,not the actual parts,once cut out you'll have 2 pieces exactly the same,saves time and uneveness.


Just gotta mark out the bulkheads now

Some more pics LOL
the 1st test fit for cutting clearances making sure all is square and upright.
Best to do this before any glueing starts.



Still got some cut outs to do in the bulkheads for stringers etc

Wood is good  :-)),looks good so far m8 what sort of angle are the sponsons at the transom looks quite steep.As regards strengthening the sponsons etc why not just add some glass to the seams inside when its sheeted thats how i did my Rocket hydro and it made it strong as anything,flipped at 65 mph and no damage at all  :}.Keep up the good work m8 im sure its going to look great.
